Hello!

Bordeaux Wine Tours © Deepix

We have just launched an absolutely incredible new tour here at Grape Escapes, and we are just itching to tell you all about it!

The Grand European Wine Tour gives you the opportunity to explore the Premium wine regions of Europe on a 15 day extravaganza. Discover and taste the famous wines of Tuscany, Bordeaux, Champagne, Burgundy and Rioja all on one whistle-stop wine trip across Europe. Of course, on a multi-region spectacular like this, you may like to tailor-make the trip, to spend additional nights in your favourite region, or with the tours amended to ensure you are visiting your preferred wineries, and that’s absolutely fine! This should give you a great idea of how a trip of this nature could work, and a starting point from which we can work with you to ensure we make your trip perfect! Find out more below…
