Wine History Tours was founded with a simple purpose: to be the best tour provider for wine lovers and history lovers alike.
The idea for Wine History Tours was born when our founder couldn’t decide which he liked better, drinking world-class Pinot Noir or watching award-winning documentaries. The solution, wine tours for those who love wine and history alike!
If you want to go to primary wine regions, learn the history, and taste the best wines—you are our clientele and we have a tour package for you!
