If you are looking for the greatest selection of European wine tours on the internet, we are pleased to inform you that you have come to the right place!
Here at Grape Escapes, we are true specialists in our featured destinations and with over a decade of experience, we offer a huge selection of wine tours to suit all tastes and budgets! We can arrange your travel, accommodation and tours for you, and all you will need to do is turn up on the day and enjoy the wine.
These are the most popular tours amongst our customers. Taking place on specific weekends, guests are fully transported on the tour day(s) in a luxury chauffeured mini-coach with an English-speaking Grape Escapes guide. The tours offer a cross section of winery sizes and wine styles from across the region to best illustrate its characteristics. A gourmet lunch is served as the guests of one of the wineries or at a premium restaurant, accompanied by fine wines.
These VIP tours are available over a wide range of dates throughout the year, mid-week and weekends and offer wine lovers the opportunity to visit their favourite Châteaux and sample the region’s finest cuisine. The hotels proposed are predominantly 5* properties and the tours are conducted entirely privately with a specialist, bilingual guide.
Available over a wide range of dates, mid-week and weekends throughout the year, we work with carefully selected local partners to accommodate customers who aren’t able to travel when the Premium Tours are taking place. Based in city centres, these tours include a combination of transported tours and visits on-foot.
The most romantic and historic properties in each region have been selected to offer guests an authentic Château experience over a wide range of dates. The charming Châteaux are located rurally; therefore access to your own vehicle is essential. The more relaxed itineraries generally include visits to two wineries/ Champagne Houses and private transfers to the individual estates can be arranged if required.
In addition to the above off-the-shelf tours that we offer, we are delighted to assist individuals and small groups in planning bespoke trips. These tours are tailored entirely to your requirements and are popular amongst honeymooners and guests celebrating their birthdays and anniversaries.
Are you looking to arrange an unforgettable trip for your group but don’t want the hassle of organising it? Let us help! We have organised birthday trips, Hen and Stag Weekends and trips for many other groups, including wine clubs, rotary groups and car owners’ clubs. Our speciality is in creating the ideal tour to match your group’s requirements and budgets.
Cycling and walking holidays have become increasingly popular amongst wine lovers, and we have introduced a range of active breaks to combine healthy living and a spot of indulgence for our customers. Our active breaks allow you to explore the beautiful countryside of your preferred region and taste the local wines and gastronomy with hassle-free arrangements such as luggage transfers from hotel to hotel when required.
In response to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on travel, and to allow our wine loving customers to continue to enjoy the unforgettable experiences which we have always taken so much pride in arranging, we are very excited to introduce a brand new range of self-drive packages to France from the UK, which encompass everything from whistle-stop two night breaks to long and leisurely, multi-region holidays.
At Grape Escapes we are real foodies. From Michelin starred restaurants with gastronomic meals to traditional local bistro with Menu du Jour or platters of simple fresh local cheeses and meat, we think our trips are greatly improved by a bit (or even better, a lot) of authentic regional specialities.
