Wine and dine your way around the world
Travelling around the world is not only a chance to open your eyes to new places, people and cultures, but to also add a gala of new and wonderful flavours to your palate. Food and wine are often an afterthought for travellers, as they’re assumed to accompany the other experiences. However, if you really want to give yourself the best chance of experiencing everything a country’s delicacy has to offer, a food and wine tour can guarantee you a fulfilling experience that will turn you into a connoisseur of international delicacies. Variety is the spice of choice here and many tours include cooking schools, famous hosts and visits to renowned vineyards, wine estates and restaurants.
No matter what flavour you’re seeking, Flight Centre’s food and wine tours will satisfy your taste buds. Touring Slow Food's annual Salone del Gusto in Piedmont, hunting for fragrant white truffles in ancient oak forests, or being led through the wine and food regions of Sicily by Fabrizia Lanza, world-renowned chef and co-owner of a cooking school, are just some of the unique experiences you can enjoy on your holiday. Tours range across a variety of locations and lengths, so you can spend 15 days venturing through the diverse Canadian countryside or as short as a few hours visiting Cadbury’s Visitor Interpretation Centre in Hobart.
There’s a rich culinary experience just waiting for you outside your door, with Australia being one of the world’s best producers of wine. You can discover what makes the wine here taste so good by taking a tour during the South Australian wine harvest or embarking on a four-day journey through Melbourne’s wine and food scenes. With knowledgeable guides who are often experienced industry professionals themselves, you can rest assured that you’re experiencing the most memorable flavours of any destination.
