Three new autumn wine tours from BKWine
Three wine and gastronomy tours are on the autumn travel program from BKWine. One classic trip, to Bordeaux; one new destination, to the Douro Valley in Portugal; and one gastronomic adventure to Champagne. The tours are organised by Britt Karlsson, founder of BKWine, based in Paris, who specialises in wine, food and gastronomic travel.
The new tours on the program are:
- September 812: Bordeaux, the great classic
- October 2226: the Douro Valley in Portugal
- November 1216: Wine & Gastronomy in Champagne
Britt comments on the new program: "My Classic Bordeaux tour is always a great success. It's quite an experience to see all the famous names in reality. Our main focus on this trip is on particularly ambitious and dynamic wine makers in this classic wine region." She continues on the Portuguese tour: "In Portugal we have this year chosen to tour the Douro Valley, one of the world's most spectacular wine regions. It is also very interesting for high quality red table wine - not only for the legendary Port. A region that has deservedly attracted a lot of attention internationally recently." She describes the trip to Champagne: "Most people visit Champagne 'just' for its sparkling wine. On this trip we will show that it is also one of France's high-class gastronomic regions. We will of course visit many champagne producers but also have some wonderful meals prepared by starred chefs."
All tours take place over a long week-end, Thursday to Sunday. The tours are led and guided by Britt herself or by one of BKWine's expert wine guides. Britt explains the aim behind her wine tours: "I want people to learn more about wine and at the same time enjoy themselves. I put a lot of effort into designing the program, choosing the most interesting producers and making them varied and interesting. Since I am also a wine writer and journalist I am fortunate to have an extensive network of contacts that allows me to put together truly exceptional programs."
BKWine focuses solely on wine and gastronomic travel. Over the years the company has organised more than two hundred wine tours to France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Hungary and Austria. BKWine also arranges custom designed tours.
