Our Team

The BKWine Team

We believe it is very important who your guide (and tour manager) is when you travel with BKWine. He/she is your ambassador to the wine world.

Our tours guides are very knowledgeable about wine, gastronomy, local culture and tradition, language (the most exciting wine makers don’t always speak your language) and of course how to run a tour smoothly. Take a look at the profiles and you will understand what we mean. Our wine tours are usually led by one of us that you can meet further down on this page.

Britt Karlsson

She has written two books on wine.
