A great way to get to know a country is through its food and wine – the smells, tastes and eating experience can linger long after the trip ends. In fact, we think that experiencing a country’s cuisine and relationship with its local produce is the best way to really understand it and have designed a series of food and wine holidays that bring eating and drinking to the fore.
Whether it’s uncovering the secrets of French cookery, tasting the best that Italy has to offer or getting to grips with Japan’s kaiseiki cuisine, appreciating an Argentine asado or a Peruvian ceviche, we can guide you to the best restaurants, local hotspots and must-try hole-in-the-wall joints. We know the vineyards to travel to in South Africa, California, Australia and Chile and can make recommendations for places to stay all around the world that are geared up to great eating and drinking.
What’s more, our specialists can advise you on how and where to get involved with food and wine experiences, be it a cookery class with a local, chance to forage or visit a food market with a top chef, go wine tasting with a leading sommelier or blend your own vintage. There are even some handpicked, exclusive opportunities open to just a handful of fortunate clients.
For more inspiration talk to our team of specialists about the smorgasbord of tailor-made food and wine holidays available and the finest ingredients for your luxury holiday.
