Let Food & Wine Trails connect you to the culture and lifestyle of a region through its food, its wine, and the people that create it.
A team of local food and wine experts from around the world are at our fingertips! All of our trips are led, and sometimes organized by, some of the most renowned people in the food and wine world.
Our cast of experts is ever changing - visit our experts page for an introduction to the current group of outstanding people working with Food & Wine Trails.
Travel with Food & Wine Trails!
Each travel program is small to ensure a highly personal experience that cannot be gleaned from guidebooks or purchased from conventional, "mass market" travel suppliers. Participants travel with a small group of like-minded individuals who want to explore a region through its artisan food and wine.
In partnership with experts, chefs and winemakers, we offer a "behind-the-kitchen-door" or "behind-the-wine-barrel" perspective - special access that enables travelers to enjoy lunch with the chef, or a tasting with the winemaker.
Our trips take participants off-the-beaten-track providing educational opportunities that engage all the senses. We satisfy each person’s curiosity, palate and love of travel. [For more about what we do and how we differ, visit our About Us page.]
