Wine Tours to the New World

Since 2008 I have run tours to wine regions in the New World. My tours are fun and informative, and we really get to know the people who make the wine and tend the vines. We have visited South Africa, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand, California and Oregon.

South Africa

In November 2017 I ran two tours to South Africa, the destination of my first long haul tour in 2008.

In 2016 I ran tours to California and Oregon.  Our California tour took us off the tourist track, visiting predominantly small, boutique, family owned estates and contrasting them with larger producers. In Oregon we tasted the same grape varieties in California, plus some surprising others, and explored the impact of the cooler climate, maritime influence and soil type.

I first took groups to Argentina in 2011, and in 2015 I ran tours to Argentina and Chile  – please read the tour reports to find out more. Both countries are producing some spectacular wines and we saw at first hand how vibrant and exciting these wine producing nations are.
