Culinary and Wine Holidays

Great food and wine are essential components of a good holiday and the reasons go beyond basic enjoyment. They’re a window into the heart and soul of a region. There is no better way to get acquainted with a destination than through its local delicacies, which tell a story of its history, culture and traditions. Immerse yourself in hand-picked cities and small towns on your gastronomic getaway and set your taste buds alight. A collection of culinary and wine tours let travellers try local delicacies and sample mouth-watering cuisine, tasting the flavours of some of Europe’s top destinations including Switzerland’s acclaimed cheese and chocolate as well as local wines and home-cooked food at a local farm. Visit some of the world’s most famous wine-producing regions and sip great vintages. Travel the Bordeaux wine trail or see the fairytale châteaux and vineyards in the rich Loire Valley. In addition to fantastic tastes and treats, all tours include a variety of excursions combined with great rail journeys.
