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 seventeenth tour, we will visit Porto and the Douro Valley, spending two nights in each. The tour will begin in Porto on Monday 25th June and end in Porto on Friday 29th June 2018. 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 Rioja & Ribera del Duero. With 20 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.
