Specialty Tour: Wine 101

We call them our Specialty Tours because they are not like the custom tours that we “personalize” according to our clients’ responses to our Wine Lover’s Personalization Tour.

We’ve learned over the past 10 years that most wine drinkers who love to discover new wines in their favorite varietal or wine category are also interested in learning about other wine varietals.

This tour is focused on exposing our clients to and educating them about every major wine varietal and grape. Every day you’ll visit wineries that specialize in the wine category featured that day.

Here’s a sample itinerary:

  • Day 1) Sparkling wines
  • Day 2) White Wines
  • Day 3) Rose
  • Day 4) Pinot Noir
  • Day 5) Merlot, Malbec, Zinfandel and more
  • Day 6) Cabernet Sauvignon & Red Proprietary Blends

With few exceptions, most wineries that focus on a specific varietal and wine also offer other excellent wines that they produce and are also proud of…and of course you may experience those tasting options too!

So, yes, you can say that this Wine 101 Tour will be a comprehensive wine sampling education to enhance your wine knowledge and appreciation.

Here’s our Promise: when your days in wine country and your Wine 101 tour conclude you will certainly know which varietals and the wines which best reflect it that you and your palate really like. And when dining out or buying wine for a dinner party, you’ll be confident and comfortable in your wine selection.

This Wine 101 Specialty Tour includes 6 days of touring and tasting, 5 night resort accommodation at a 4+ or 5 Star hotel resort, 5 Star and Michelin-starred dinner dining experiences and lunches that include at least one or two multi-course wine and gourmet tapas pairing and may also include a winery picnic depending on season and weather, at least one artisan visit, and up to 4 wine tasting per day from the options below as well as possible inclusion of one or more wineries not on our list that you wish to discover. Plus of course 5 days with guidance from your private wine expert guide-chauffeur and his luxury vehicle.

Final cost is dependent on season of travel, hotel choice and wineries selected for sampling.
