Visit Australia’s Yarra Valley in Victoria, with its rolling hills lined with vines, distant blue ranges, towering trees and picturesque rivers.  Why not take a hot air balloon ride and stop by a valley vineyard for brunch?  Or visit the Healesville Sanctuary wildlife park and drop in to one of the many local wineries for a tasting?

Take  balloon ride over the Yarra Valley to take in the beautiful views

No other urban area in the United States has as many wineries within such close proximity as Seattle. Enjoy unforgettable vistas and fantastic wines on a stunning self-drive tour of the Pacific Northwest and see the astounding natural beauty of Mount Rainier National Park, Olympic National Park and the Columbia River Gorge.

 

In New Zealand, stay in romantic lodgings and enjoy plenty of relaxation and mouth-watering cuisine and wines.  Visit Argyle Winery in Dundee, which produces hand-crafted Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and excellent sparkling wine, or the Adelsheim Vineyard, which hosts a behind-the-scenes tour to learn about the different wine-making processes.

 The Reus region is famous for it

Don’t miss the exquisite architecture and fine wine of the Spanish town of Reus in the Tarragona province.  Surrounded by vineyards, Antonio Gaudi's home town has been at the centre of the wine and brandy trade for centuries.  The city is world-famous for its rock climbing facilities and structures, and it’s also an easy distance to the Costa Dorada.

 

Teh views in the Stellenbosch region of Cape Town are simply stunning

No trip to Cape Town is complete without a visit to a wine farm.  Enjoy a gastronomic feast in the heart of the wine lands at Jordan’s.  In the shade of the dramatic Stellenbosch mountains, enjoy award-winning dishes washed it all down with fine wine from the estate. Cape Town itself is brimming with historical sites, natural wonders and nightlife.

 

California is famed for it

Enjoy flowing wine and crashing waves in California. Take a drive past lush green vineyards set alongside the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean, and discover California’s world-acclaimed Napa Valley wineries, Michelin-star restaurants, healing spas, cultural arts and sunny outdoor activities.

 

Vineyards and olive trees lead the way to the Chile mountains

Or raise a glass to Chile on a tour of the wine lands of the Colchagua Valley, one of the country’s most fertile wine-growing areas.  Explore the lively city of Santiago circled by beautiful snow-capped mountains and sample superb wines in world-famous vineyards.
