We have three tours to the southern hemisphere on the program this winter. It is still a bit unclear whether these will be possible. We follow closely what is happening in the world. The three tours will take as to Chile-Argentina, New Zealand and South Africa, interesting wine countries to visit both for their stunning nature, the great wines and the good food. And of course, thanks to the many interesting wine growers we will meet.
If you are interested in any of these three trips, feel free to contact us with any questions.
Chile and Argentina, January 2021
We start the tour in Buenos Aires and end in Santiago de Chile. In between, we will visit Mendoza, Argentina’s largest wine region. We will taste malbec of course, but also many other grape varieties. Our bus will take us across the mighty Andes to Chile where we visit cool coastal regions such as Casablanca and San Antonio and beautiful Colchagua in the inland. A journey you will not easily forget.
New Zealand, February 2021
New Zealand is surrounded by water. The water affects the climate in almost all wine regions on the island. It is relatively cool and consequently the grapes here thrive in slightly cool climates, such as sauvignon blanc, pinot noir, pinot gris and riesling. Although sauvignon blanc dominates, there is today a great desire to expand the grape portfolio and to offer something else. New Zeeland is an exciting country to discover. Both for the wines and the extraordinary landscape.
South Africa in March 2021
Join us on this tour to beautiful South Africa and meet some of the country’s most talented winemakers. We visit classic Franschhoek and Stellenbosch, trendy Swartland and cool climate regions such as Elgin and Hemel-en-Aarde. We visit Cape Town. We will discover South African cuisine and we will have delicious meals at the wineries. Safari with many animals and beautiful nature is offered after the tour if you want.
