Like Tuscany but with fewer tourists, is one way of describing le Marche. In other words, a stunningly beautiful landscape that you find between the mountains and the Adriatic Sea.

Klein Constantia Perdeblokke

We met with the CEO of legendary Klein Constantia on the wine tour to South Africa

Perhaps the most important thing – apart from the location itself, the wine region – for a successful wine tour is that you get to meet the “right” people. People who have a story to tell, who has a passion for wine and the making of wine. It is also one of the biggest challenges […]
