Discover the journey from grape to glass on our new French wine tasting holiday

For a long time Wine has been overshadowed by its sister Cooking on the GoLearnTo site.

Well now it’s time for Wine to step out of the shadows and have a holiday of its own, celebrating the history and production right through to tastings with our own wine tasting tutor.

The five Ws

Daily seminars on all things wine with cultural excursions, vineyard visits and the chance to take a WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) Level 1 or 2 certification

Amanda Rowley from Defining Wine will lead the learning part, whereas hosts Tas and Martyn are there to give you the greatest home comforts and local cuisine

An amazing Manor house on 18 acres of land in Lot-et-Garonne (Region Aquitaine) in South West France

Selected dates in June and September

Wine tasting holiday

Right on the doorstep of wine country on an 18 acre private estate is your home for the week in a stunning Manor house surrounded by gardens, two swimming pools, nature trails, and even a large private pond.

Bring a friend or go alone, and be ready to taste the best of the Aquitaine Region through rolling vineyards, delicious homemade French cuisine and great local eateries, with plenty of extra time to get into the heated pool or hit the country lanes by bicycle.

Whether you’re absolutely new to wine or ready to obtain a WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) certification to take your knowledge one step further, Amanda Rowley of Defining Wine is an accredited training provider who’ll spend the week guiding you round local producers, vineyards and wine tastings.

This is the perfect holiday to learn, taste, and relax as you go. Your hosts have thought of everything, and if your a lover of the outdoors, there is no better place to spend a week than on the terraces, by the pond, or in the pools in sunny, rural France.
