We have now finished the final details on the programmes for our long-distance tours to the New World 2022. We hope and believe that all borders have then been opened. A wine tour to the southern hemisphere in just over a year is really something to look forward to right now.

Our three long-haul tours go to Chile-Argentina, New Zealand and South Africa. The wines in all four of these countries have changed and improved enormously in recent years. There is a great enthusiasm among the producers to show what they can do. The fact that the countries also offer magnificent scenery and wonderful gastronomy makes it even better.

If you are interested in any of these three trips, contact us with your questions.

Chile and Argentina in January 2022

Argentina and Chile, two neighbouring countries but with very different wine styles. We start in Argentina, visit Buenos Aires and Mendoza, taste malbec and eat empanadas and fantastic grilled meat. We take our bus across the Andes, a breath-taking drive, to Chile, where we visit the new cool wine regions by the sea and Colchagua with their high-quality red wines. We will stay in the small charming town of Santa Cruz and the beautiful Viña del Mar. We end our tour in Santiago, the capital.

The programme for South America, Chile and Argentina 2022 is now finalised!

South Africa in February 2022

South Africa is a New World country with a long wine history, more than 350 years. But only in the 1990s did we start drinking the wines from here and since then a lot has happened, both with the quality and the style of the wines. Today, South Africa is a very interesting wine country. We visit both well-known Stellenbosch as well as Franschhoek, but also Walker Bay down on the south coast and Swartland further north which attracts more and more talented winemakers. We enjoy stunning nature, gastronomy and of course we also visit Cape Town.

The travel programme for South Africa 2022 is not entirely settled yet, but it will be similar to the South Africa wine trip 2021.

New Zealand, March 2022

New Zealand is the youngest of the New World countries. Success has come quickly. Today, the whole world drinks wine from New Zealand. It is a long journey to get there but once you have arrived, we will show you almost the whole country. Our bus will take us from Auckland down to Queenstown which includes a 3-hour boat ride between the North Island and the South Island. Our New Zealand tour offers many great experiences. And the wine is one of them of course. We will get to know many of the country’s wine regions, including Marlborough with its sauvignon blanc and magnificent, mountainous Central Otago with its pinot noir.

The programme for New Zealand 2022 is not entirely settled yet, but it will be similar to the New Zealand wine trip 2021.
