Personal Service

We believe that there is absolutely no substitute for individual knowledge and experiences, which enables us to deliver a truly personal service to all of our customers. We specialise in a limited range of destinations, so you can be sure that we have a deep and extensive knowledge of our featured regions.


We believe that you deserve the very best value and service, irrespective of whether you are spending £500 or £50,000 on your holiday. We keep our suppliers under constant review with regular inspections and assessments to ensure that the quality of service and welcome meet our high standards. We also closely monitor all customer feedback, which in turn enables us to consistently improve our offerings.

Flexibility and Choice

We offer a very flexible range of holidays to suit all tastes and budgets, and the majority of our standard packages are available mid-week and weekends throughout the year. In addition, we are able to arrange completely tailor-made trips! Whatever your requirements, we promise to have a tour for you!

Wonderful Wineries

With every Grape Escape, you will have the opportunity to visit a number of vineyards and wine-makers. We know from personal experience and consistent feedback that the most enjoyable tours are not necessarily given by the big names, but often by our carefully selected smaller growers who are always excited to share their passion for their wines with our guests. We therefore organise visits to a range of both small and large wineries and on many occasions, you will enjoy the privilege of being welcomed by the wine-maker personally.

Great Gastronomy

An essential element of every Grape Escapes trip is the opportunity to enjoy the wines as the makers intended; alongside an excellent meal. We take the same care in selecting and recommending restaurants as we do with the rest of your trip. Meals arranged by Grape Escapes range from hearty and traditional as the guests of a winery to multi Michelin-starred tasting experiences; and everywhere in between.

Lowest Price Guarantee

We specialise in sending a large numbers of customers to a small number of regions. As a result, we have a buying power across Europe that provides us access to the best rates and consequentially, allows us to offer our customers a lowest price guarantee. If you believe that you have found a comparable package for less than the Grape Escapes price, we guarantee to match or even beat it.
