The Ultimate Wine Tours, with BKWine
BKWine is dedicated to organising top-quality wine and food tours to the world’s most beautiful wine regions and to sharing our passion for excellent wine, outstanding food and stunning wine country.
For us, travelling is a very personal experience, and a successful trip is all about meeting the right people and knowing where to go. But it is also about exploring: discovering talented wine producers and tasting their wines, enjoying the very best local food, experiencing memorable moments or unexpected delights. And of course, it’s also about sharing this with others. We’d like to share these kind of things with… you.
Are you looking to learn more about wine and enjoy excellent food? Do you want to experience the ultimate luxury wine tour with some of the very best grand crus and châteaux offering boutique hotel-style accommodation? Or meet the rising stars who will be tomorrow’s famous names? Do you want to hear all about the latest trends in winemaking and wine tasting from the growers themselves?
You’ve come to the right place.
We offer two types of wine tours:
Tours on our regularly updated wine travel programme, where you sign up for the dates that suit you. These tours go to the most popular wine travel destinations, and sometimes to some more unusual, undiscovered gems.
Our scheduled tours are usually planned over four nights / three full days, which can be a perfect long weekend or extended to a luxurious week. Tours to more distant destinations are longer. Take a look at our Currently Scheduled Wine Tours to see what is on the programme right now.
Custom-designed private tours:
Tours for those who are looking for something that is not on our “regular” scheduled programme. Perhaps an unusual destination, or a very private luxury wine tour. A customer event or a corporate team-building event. An educational wine tasting tour to hone some very specific areas of your wine knowledge. Read more about our Custom Wine Tour offer here.
You can also take a look at “Popular Wine Tour Destinations” to see what wine and food travel destinations might be coming up as a future scheduled tour. Alternatively, you might find inspiration for bespoke wine tour, designed by us, just for you.
All our wine and food tours are led by one of our talented wine guides and tour managers. You can read more about them in the Our Team section.
You will always have the opportunity to taste the best of local wine and gastronomy in private wine tastings and delicious, gourmet-quality meals.
