Wine is synonymous with Europe so it is no surprise that wine tours are so popular. The continent is home to some of the most recognisable wine regions in the world, and produces fabulous premium brands through to delicious every day bottles.
You can experience the best wine that Europe has to offer through a Tasteful Tours’ Wine Trail of Europe wine tour. We will tailor the tour to suit your interests and your tastes. We cover Spain, France, Germany, Hungary and Greece. You can go for a 14 day tour and spend a few days in each of the five countries, or you can focus on one country and spend your time getting to know it and its wine better.
More land in Spain is covered by vineyards than in any other country in the world. You will visit regions known for their superb quality wines, including Rioja and Priorat.
No wine tour in Europe would be complete without a trip to the spiritual home of wine, France. You will visit areas such as Champagne, Bourdeaux and Burgandy to sample well-known brands as well as visiting smaller, artisan wine makers.
In Germany you will try the brilliant white wines that the country is famous for, particularly the Rieslings. The regions that you will visit are usually in the west of the country and include Rheinhessen and Palatinate.
Wine has been produced in Hungary since the time of the Roman Empire. Today there are 22 wine regions including the Tokaj region in the foothills of the Zemplén Mountains in the north of the country. Here you can sample the sweet Tokaji wines.
Wine making in Greece goes back even further than Hungary's history. There are over 300 indigenous grapes in the country and several respected wine making regions. This includes Macedonia, Epirus and Thessalia.
