About walking and wine tasting tours

Walking and wine tasting tours are the perfect blend of gentle activity and gastronomic delight. From sampling crisp white wine in the rolling countryside of Tuscany, Italy, to wandering through the fertile vineyards of Portugal’s Douro Valley, we have a variety of trips to choose from. 

A typical day on a walking and wine tasting tour involves driving to a destination of interest, stretching the legs on a gentle walk through scenic landscapes and fascinating cities, and sampling the region’s best wines. You’ll then have the opportunity to explore on your own or with other group members and enjoy delicious local food in the evening. 

And you don’t need to know anything about wine or walking to enjoy this type of tour. The walking is graded easy or easy to moderate, so is suitable for people in good health and who can walk for 3-5 hours a day. The paths are generally even, and the terrain undemanding. And for the wine tasting, you just need the enthusiasm to try lots of different tipples and learn about how they are made - simple!

Best destinations for walking and wine tasting

Tuscany, Italy
The rolling hills of Tuscany are home to a labyrinth of ancient pilgrimage trails ready to be explored by foot. Wander along wide gravel tracks and uncover swathes of verdant vineyards on our Southern Tuscany Walking and Wine Tour. Thirteen medieval towers rise out of the terracotta-roofed dwellings in the hilltop town of San Gimignano, and a plethora of rustic lanes boast boutique shops and alfresco cafes. Savour crisp and fresh white wine at the Sovestro winery and learn about the local Vernaccia grape. 

Emilia-Romagna, Italy
The north Italian region of Emilia-Romagna is brimming with gastronomic delights. Tickle your taste buds with the region’s signature red wine, Lambrusco, and watch authentic parmesan cheese being made on our Taste of Italy Emilia Romagna Tour. Enjoy gentle walks in the Apennine foothills, go in search of flamingo and giant egret in the protected wetlands of Po River Delta and explore the medieval portico arcades of Bologna.

Piedmont, Italy
Ribbons of flourishing vineyards sprawl across the vast rural landscape, and the mighty snow-capped peaks of the Alps dominate the horizon in Italy’s Piedmont region. Join our Self-Guided Walking Vacation in Piedmont to explore this picture-postcard scenery and uncover quaint villages, ancient castles and leafy hazelnut forests. Stop to sample local tipples on the way and discover delicious Barolo and Barbaresco wines produced from the native Nebbiolo grape. 

Puglia, Italy
Transport yourself to the sun-drenched region of Puglia located in the ‘heel’ of Italy on our easy-graded Taste of Italy Walking Tour. Learn about local bread-making in Altamura, mozzarella kneading in Putignano Agri, and wine grape harvesting in the fertile vineyards of Locorotondo. Wander amongst ancient cone-shaped Trulli dwellings in the Itria Valley and end an easy-going day exploring on foot with a Puglian wine tasting experience at the Cantina Albea wine museum. 

Douro Valley, Portugal
Lush vineyard terraces wrap the steep hillsides of Portugal’s Douro Valley wine region. Join our relaxing Walks and Wine Tasting in Spain and Portugal Tour to trace the region’s wine-making processes from grape to bottle, and take a train through this verdant oasis to see first-hand how the grapes are grown, harvested and pressed at a local vineyard. Wander around the nearby Renaissance and Baroque village of Lamego before heading into the city to sample Porto’s fortified wines. 

Ribera del Duero, Spain
The Ribera del Duero region of Spain is renowned for its high-quality red wines derived from the Tempranillo grape. After a walk along the limestone valley of Duraton River Natural Park on our Walks and Wine Tasting in Spain and Portugal Tour, we enjoy a wine tasting session at an ultra-modern winery, Protos Bodega. The next day we’ll sample wines in Zamora before walking amongst Romanesque churches in the city.
