2021/22 Tour Programme
My tour to the Douro Valley in Portugal from the 15th-19th September 2021 has started – read the blog here. Like every tour operator in the country, I follow Government travel advice and have worked with the people booked on the tour, and the places we are visiting, to ensure we are all happy with the arrangements.
I am extremely optimistic about prospects for the spring tours scheduled for 2022, and am taking bookings – where there is room! I am so grateful to all of my clients who have deferred their reservations (for two years!), and am really looking forward to being able to get back out into the vineyards and wineries and bringing wine lovers and wine makers together.
If you are thinking about a wine tour in the future, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
On all Tim Syrad Wine Tours, you will:
Taste fabulous wines
Meet amazing wine makers
Be guided by wine expert Tim Syrad
Enjoy wonderful gastronomy
Visit beautiful places
Why do my clients keep coming back on my wine tours year after year?
- Our wine holidays are in lovely places with fabulous scenery.
- We visit famous wineries and smaller ones that have a fascinating story to tell.
- We meet the owners and wine makers.
- We talk to the people who make the wine and tend the vines.
- We get to know a region, its wine and cuisine properly
- We keep group size small enough (under 25) to ensure the best visits and a great atmosphere
I personally escort all my wine tours, and make sure that every single tour delivers these magic ingredients. Since 2001 I have escorted more than 400 people on over 100 tours to most of the major wine regions in the world. I am very proud that so many of my clients come back on tour with me every year – over 50 people have been on at least ten of my tours, and more than 100 people have been on at least five of my tours.
“On each of our four trips no two wineries were ever the same. The people who ran them were always welcoming and clearly had a great respect for Tim and his extensive knowledge of both wines and the wine trade. In addition there was always a surprise: unusual buildings, a llama farm in South America and amazing art galleries in Jerez. The wines were chosen with great care, both for enjoyment and learning about wine, and the atmosphere relaxed and fun. Tim is clearly a people person as well as being a wine person, nothing was ever too much trouble for his guests and he always made sure we all enjoyed ourselves.”
