Best Wine Holidays For 2022

Best Wine Holidays For 2022 Published on . Category: ,

What’s the best wine you’ve ever had?

It’s a hotly debated topic, but one thing that sommeliers, connoisseurs and wine enthusiasts agree on is that the ancient craft of winemaking is fascinating. This makes the best wine holidays highly appealing, especially as they’re in some of the world’s most beautiful locations!

Touring a vineyard as part of a vacation is extremely popular. After all, around 6.2 billion gallons of wine are drunk globally each year, and you get bottles like the Screaming Eagle Cabernet (1992) changing hands for an eye-watering $500,000.

Another reason visiting vineyards on holiday has universal appeal is you sample local wines and expand your palate, as well growing knowledge on how wine is made.

However, there are also the perfect getaways for people who love wine. Trips that don’t just include a visit to a vineyard and winery, but actually put you at the heart of the world’s finest wine-producing regions. Why visit one winery tour as a ‘bolt-on’, when you can select from our guide to the best wine holidays for 2022?

Napa Valley, California

Any list of wine appreciation holidays must include California’s Napa Valley and the easist way to get there is by flying to San Fransisco. Indisputably one of the best wine growing regions in the world, with multiple fascinating tours and sampling experiences. Book wine classes with top sommeliers and producers, or even blend your own wine at places like Creek Winery, St. Helena.

There are many top wine labels to visit, such as Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, Yountville and Joseph Phelps Vineyards, St. Helena.

California is also the ideal driving holiday. You can add tempting locations like San Francisco, the Pacific Coast Highway, and Yosemite National part to your Napa Valley wine holiday.

Hunter Valley, Australia

Like California, Australia enjoys the year-round sunshine that helps to create superior vineyards and the best wine holidays. The Margaret River Region is great for sip and surfing vacations, but holidays for wine buffs don’t get better than Hunter Valley – also known as Australia’s Wine Country. How to get there? Book your flights to Sydney and we can help plan the rest!

You could take a bus tour of multiple world-class cellar and winery attractions or map out a self-drive tour of Hunter Valley and include a stay in Sydney on your wine holiday.

A great time to go is when the area hosts the Hunter Valley Wine & Beer Festival in June 2022.

Stellenbosch, South Africa
