Small gourmet wine tasting tours to Paris, Loire Valley, Champagne, Dordogne, Bordeaux, St. Emilion, Provence, Northern Italy, Andalusia, Spain and Portugal, Normandy, Brittany, Tuscany and Umbria, Italy. All tours include: deluxe accommodations with lovely private baths, all breakfasts, gourmet dinners, fully escorted, small groups of 8-15 people, all tour guides, all museum and show entrance fees, all tips and taxes.

Our small group escorted luxury tours are unique. You will travel with a small group of six to sixteen to hidden corners and marvelous historic regions of great beauty-our favorite places in Europe. Since the group size is small, we can be flexible and cater to your every need. We dine on gourmet cuisine in elegant, little regional restaurants full of charm. We stay in chateaux, beautiful little inns and small deluxe hotels of character. We unpack for several nights and get to know the local people and hidden neighborhoods well.

When we're not exploring medieval castles, hilltop villages and bastides or prehistoric caves, we may be tasting wine with a viticulteur in his private vineyard, enjoying a gourmet picnic, washing down foie gras with a glass of champagne, relaxing by the pool of our hillside villa, taking a cooking class in the chef's kitchen, or sipping a glass of local wine by a lakeside trattoria. Everyday is full of adventure, history and beauty, friendly people, and unforgettable excursions.
