Custom designed wine tours
If you prefer something different than our scheduled wine tours we can tailor a wine tour specifically to your requirements.
Perhaps you want to travel with a group of your friends, colleagues, business associates or customers… The tours can be focused on wine only or can be combined with other things such as food and gastronomy (three-star restaurants, cheese making, foie gras workshop, oyster farms, ham production…), golf, cultural visits, etc.
Tailor made wine tours on all levels
We work with “amateur” wine lovers (“amateur” as in the French sense of the word, meaning someone who loves something!) and with professionals – wine importers, sommeliers, restaurateurs, wine journalists… We can organise experiences on all levels: “just for fun and pleasure” to highly specialised and advanced educational tours.
A tailor made wine tour from BKWine is designed by people who know wine better than almost anyone (how many wine tour organisers do you know who have written two wine books?) and who are also experts in organising travel.
Private wine tours for small groups or big
We can do a custom designed wine tour for any number of people. We have planned tours for one person and we have planned tours for 150 people. It is up to you.
All our wine tours are accompanied by the BKWine expert wine guides.
The BKWine tour managers know wine and gastronomy, but also local culture and, importantly, language. Read more about the BKWine guides here.
Custom wine travel of many kinds
Are you studying on a wine education program? Are you a wine enthusiast who wants to learn more on in detail on a specific subject? Do you have a team that needs honing of the wine skills? We can organise educational and training tours according to your specific needs. Read more on BKWine’s educational wine tours!
Are you looking for something out of the ordinary (not that a BKWine tour ever is “ordinary”!)?
We can take you to the impossible-to-visit châteaux. We can let enjoy the most fabulous lunches and dinners with wines rarely seen on restaurant tables. Either as guests at a château or in three star restaurants. Would you like to sleep like a châtelaine in a beautiful room in a country château? Read more on BKWine’s luxury wine tours!
Conferences, customer events, sales meetings, team building camps, secluded board meetings… Arrange your meeting in a very special place. From a small private party of just a few people who need privacy, to large groups with special requirements. We can help you organise it and make sure it becomes a lasting memory for the people you bring.
Wine and Food
Wine and food inevitably follow each other. Do you want to learn how to cook real Italian food and make your own pasta? Come on an Italian wine and cooking tour with us. Or perhaps you are curious about how to actually prepare your own foie gras in the French way? Then you should come on a French duck work shop with us.
In addition to the food workshops the trip will of course also be filled with exciting winery visits, where you will get the chance to meet the winemakers and taste their wines in private tastings.
Wine buyers’ and wine importers’ tours
Are you a retailer looking for new suppliers? Want to discover new winemakers and new wines?
Talk to us about your requirements and what you are looking for and we can design a trip for you that will allow you to find new wine producers to include in your selection.
It can also be a wine tour created specifically for a wine importer that he can offer to his contacts or VIP customers. It will be a unique opportunity to showcase your producers to your best clients, by taking them around to meet your favourite wine suppliers.

We have a very multi-lingual team that can take you round the wine countries in several different languages:
- Swedish / Norwegian / Danish
- enquire about anything else!
There are many, many exciting destinations for a wine tour. The ones we have on our Current Tours program are just those that happen to be most in demand. We organise travel to France, Italy, Portugal, South Africa and several other wine countries. Here are some examples of other, unusual, and exciting wine travel destinations:
- The Douro Valley – one of the world’s most spectacular wine landscapes
- Languedoc – sometimes called The New World of France. (We have written a book on the wines from Languedoc.)
- Tuscany – the great classic in Italy
- Umbria – less visited than Tuscany, but also excellent wine and food, and less tourists…
- Wine and truffles – let us take you on a real truffles hunt, with a magnificent truffles lunch, not to forget the vineyard visits
Contact us and discuss your ideas on destinations.
We have organised hundreds of wine tours all over the world. Each year we organise around 20 custom designed wine tours. Here are some examples of past customers:

You can be confident that we know wine and we know travel!
