One of the biggest strokes of genius within developing our cycle tours has to be the combining of our two favourite things; wine and cycling! Who would have thought that these two seemingly opposed past-times could harmoniously meet in what can only be described as ‘utopia’. With the opportunity to blissfully pedal through a number of world-renowned wine regions in both Italy and France, we’re sure you’ll find a cycling holiday that suits both your cycling experience and well-trained taste buds among our extensive list of hand-crafted tours.

Italy has recently taken over France as the world’s biggest wine producer (no mean feat. considering the French produce between 7-8 billion bottles a year!). Just 2 of our Italian wine tasting holidays to mention are the Piedmont tour in the North Western region, which coasts through the renowned wine-producing region of Langhe, home to the Barolo, Barbera and Dolcetto. Alternatively our Tuscan tour takes you amongst the Chianti hillsides, where some of Italy’s noblest wines are produced. Although no longer the world’s biggest wine producer, France is still certainly considered one of the greatest. Our tour from Avignon to Aigues-Mortes, part of one of our bike and boat cycling holidays, quite rightly offers up a tasting of the famous Provencal wine of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

Wine tasting cycling holidays are the perfect way to both relax and explore. With the options of guided, self-guided, hotel and boat touring, the opportunities for a wonderful wine tasting holiday are endless. Should you be in any doubt of what exactly it is we offer, just take a quick look at our bike and hotel or bike and boat cycling holiday pages, which describe all the particulars of our cycling holidays. We look forward to sharing a bottle with you in the future. Cheers!
