OUR MISSION at Food & Wine Trails is to offer guests authenticity and the highest-quality value in the culinary and viticulture travel world. 
 
The best way to truly know a place is to experience it through its people, food and wine. And the most fun you can have doing that is to travel with a group of likeminded enthusiasts.
 
We are an award-winning tour company with more than 29 years of experience.  This long-time, singular focus on food and wine educational travel, combined millions of dollars in annual purchasing power, and a team of worldwide food and wine experts, allows us to offer our guests a unique combination of value, quality, authenticity and access.
 
Don't settle for simply having "a great trip." Instead, have a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

All our trips are led by some of the most renowned people in the food and wine world. And on our cruises, you’ll be met in port by local sommeliers, chefs and wine writers who will introduce you to the best of their region. EXPERTS
