Our wine tours for autumn 2017 are now available on bkwinetours.com. New tours this year is Piedmont, a gastronomic experience as well as a wine tour to the exciting and dynamic Alentejo in southern Portugal.
Bordeaux, 27 September – 1 October
This is probably harvest time in Bordeaux so there will be a lot of activities in the vineyards and in the cellars. Perhaps we will see the new, advanced sorting machines in action. An experience!
Douro Valley in northern Portugal, 18-22 October
The Douro valley grapes are growing in one of the world’s most spectacular scenery. The producers use methods that no one else uses anymore, for instance foot treading in large lagars. However, modern methods are used also. We will taste both port wines and normal red and white wines.
Piedmont, Wine, Food and Truffles, October 18-22
Barolo and Barbaresco are some of Italy’s most famous wines. It is not surprising. They are great personalities. Another grape worth discovering is Barbera, quite unique also.
Alentejo and Setubal, Portugal, 25-29 October
Here in Alentejo the quality revolution of Portuguese wines started. And the quality continues to improve. Wine producers from other regions have made major investments here. Alentejo is a fascinating landscape, filled with cork oaks and vines.
