That evening unwind with a fabulous Tuscan tasting menu!
Beautiful Tuscany will take your breath away with its scenery fine dining and wine; Italian wines have improved at an astonishing pace and not only will you be tasting some of the famous super Tuscans like the Villa Antinori Rosso, but you will be savouring some of the best Italian cooking as the two go delightfully hand in hand.
Enjoy breakfast on the terrace, before being whisked off to the airport as Rioja reds now await!

Then make use of the extensive spa and gym facilities at the hotel before an extraordinary eight-course Michelin Star dinner at one of the top restaurants in Spain.

You will visit a winery before visiting an ancient vineyard dating to the 14th century. This is followed by a fabulous tapas lunch.

Leaving the Arabadia Mountains behind you, it’s time to visit Bordeaux for and enjoy more world-famous Grand Cru Wines. That evening you will indulge in a spectacular two-star Michelin tasting menu paired with Grand Cru Wines with each course.
The second day of your Bordeaux wine tasting trip is devoted to the majestic Médoc. Along with your English-speaking guide you’ll follow the famous “route des châteaux”, stopping for tastings at two prestigious classified growth châteaux along the way including an exclusive lunch in a 2nd growth château.
Time to reflect over your favourite region and grape variety with a glass or two of bubbly en route home. (Or if your feeling really extravagant, you can always stop in Champagne for a night too?).
