New Release: Dan Brown’s Inferno tour with wine!


With winter drawing closer and the chillRiojay nights drawing in, we’ve been rushing home in the evenings to cosy up on the sofa with a glass of Rioja and a good dose of television (did someone say Bake Off?!). Whilst it’s lovely to sit back and relax, it would be even more fabulous to be enjoying that red wine in the heart of the Spanish vineyards! At this time of year, Rioja is the perfect region to visit; the rolling slopes are spectacularly coloured in autumnal shades of red and orange, and the moderate climate makes for a welcoming break. Our special offer below makes a trip to Rioja impossible to say no to! Read on for more details…

It is also with much excitement that we launch today our ‘Inferno’ tour! Based in Florence, Tuscany, this unique break gives you the opportunity to explore the locations featured in the new film ‘Inferno’, based on the 2013 Dan Brown novel. The film will be in UK cinemas from this Friday 14th October and once you’ve seen the stunning sets, we are certain you’ll be desperate to head to Tuscany yourself!

And lastly, here is your final reminder about our exciting photo competition! If you want to be in with a chance to win £1000 of Grape Escapes vouchers for your next holiday, please send us your wine tour holiday snaps via Twitter, Facebook or Instagram before Friday 21st October!
