“A total success, what more could one wish for?”, said those who travelled on a wine tour in South Africa with BKWine

Few wine countries have such a dramatic contemporary history as South Africa. And few countries have seen such a steep rise in wine quality. Looking at the statistics, South Africa is still dominated by dependable volume wines (which sells well on export), but taking a closer look you will find a wine country bubbling with […]

“Fantastic experiences” – Say The Travellers On The Wine Tour In The Rhone Valley

In northern Rhône, Syrah dominates. In southern Rhône, everything is much more Provençal and Mediterranean. Here, grenache is the main grape, but many other grapes are also grown. Some of the most famous names in the Rhone Valley are in the northern part, Côte Rôtie and Hermitage, but it is in the southern part where […]

What do travellers think about the Champagne tour? “Fantastic. Would never go with anyone else on a wine tour”

Champagne, the world’s most famous bubbly wine. But champagne is so much more than a wine only for celebration and festivities. It’s a great wine with its very own characters and can go wonderfully well with food. Many people tend to focus entirely on the famous “houses”, the famous brands that you can find on […]

Happy customers comment on a wine tour in Burgundy: “amazing days”

Burgundy can be a tricky district to travel in. There are several big known “houses” (negociants), often the ones seen on the export market, but if you are on a wine tour in Burgundy, it is seldom the most famous names that are most exciting to visit. There reception often becomes a little bit impersonal. […]

Quite a while back by now we organised our first ever wine tour to Croatia: a few days with winery visits in Istria, wine tastings, gourmet lunches, and much more. We also had the opportunity to taste the white truffle, the same white truffle as they have in Piemonte in northern Italy: tuber magnatum pico. […]

“We were all very happy with the trip to Avignon”, wine tour in the Rhône Valley

A while back, a mail landed in my in-box with a comment from a person who had been on a tour with us in the Rhone Valley.

“An excellently planned and executed wine tour in the Loire Valley, we are keen to come back”

In autumn we have a lot of tours on the schedule. It is sometimes difficult to have time for all other things you need to do too. But also some of our customers have very busy schedules. Positive feedback is, however, welcome whenever it arrives! To say “should already have done” just a few weeks […]

On the wine & food tour Three Classics: “perhaps the most delicious meal I’ve ever eaten”

Our wine tours naturally have the emphasis on wine, but we also put great importance on the food and the gastronomic experience. To drink wine is intimately connected with food. So when you visit a wine region it is important to also experience the typical local food, the regional gastronomy. At least that’s what we […]

Is it too ambitious? No, that’s not what Jan-Olof and Gunilla […]

“We can only warmly recommend to travel with BKWine Tours!”

Many people directly think of port wine when you mention  the Douro Valley or the city of Porto in northern Portugal. And of course it is correct, this is where port wine comes from. But it is also a wine district that today makes very exciting, delicious “table” wines, both reds and whites. The city […]
