Our Mission Statement:

Wine, food and travel are our passion.  We are dedicated to arranging & leading exceptional food and wine related tours for the discerning traveler.  Having traveled extensively within the wine regions of Europe, South America and Australia for over 35 years, our personal touch, one-of-a-kind tours are designed to provide high quality.

We are wine writers and educators with numerous professional affiliations, hence, we have special access to world-class wineries, can secure accommodations in boutique properties (most of which do not accept groups), cook & dine with cutting-edge chefs, and visit prominent food producers which are closed to the public.

Although our tours focus on food and wine education, we believe that history and culture are instrumental in understanding a region.  Visits to important historical and cultural sites are always included.

In summary, our mission is to create holidays that are fun, as well as educational, for the food and wine lover.


We are the oldest U.S. company to offer wine and food related tours to international destinations.  In business since 1978, we have thousands of satisfied clients who have been with us to France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Croatia & Montenegro, Chile & Argentina, Australia, New Zealand & Vietnam.  Our return rate of travelers is 73%.  Some clients have been on >10 trips with us...others have been on the same tour more than once. We are happy to supply references from these foodies and oenophiles.
