In the 1980s the Club began a series of highly successful wine tours during which it has visited producers in the Loire, Bordeaux, Champagne, Burgundy, Portugal, the Rhone, Alsace, the Mosel, Northern Italy and Spain.
The tours which are held biennially enable members to meet the growers who supply The Wine Society, to sample their wines and to enjoy the traditional food and hospitality of the region.
Members can be accompanied by a partner or guest.
Where tours are oversubscribed, a ballot for places is held with weighting given to members in accordance with the level of support they have shown for regular Club events in the intervening two years.
For our eighteenth tour, we will visit Bordeaux, spending two nights on the Left Bank and two nights in the beautiful city of Bordeaux itself. The tour will begin in Bordeaux on Monday 22nd June and end in Bordeaux on Friday 26th June 2020. The full itinerary can be found by clicking on the link below.
The tour is being organised by Cindy-Marie Harvey, who had been involved in organising the Club's tours for many years, and who joined us on our most recent tour to Porto & the Douro Valley. With 22 years of experience in designing and escorting wine tours to all the leading wine regions of the world, she has set up her own company, Love Wine Food Ltd., organising exclusive wine tours for private groups.
We will be accompanied by the Wine Society’s buyer for the wines of Bordeaux - Tim Sykes as Wine Guide for part of the tour and he will be joined by Cindy-Marie as Tour Manager.
