Food & Wine Holidays in California
California is rich is flavours, from its fertile local farms and ranches to its 1300 kilometres of seafood-rich coast. What’s more, a long history of immigration and the diversity of its cities means that the Golden State is home to not only what we think of as ‘Californian cuisine’, but also the food cultures of Japan, Mexico, Central America and more. In the same day, you may find yourself on an organic farm picking local fruit, sitting by the ocean for caught-same-day shellfish, and trying fusion cuisine at a trendy new restaurant—the world is your freshly-shucked oyster.
Sip in style in California wine country
Due to its unique microclimates and temperate year-round climate, California boasts some of the world’s finest wine production. Think beyond Napa Valley and Sonoma; with four distinct regions—the North Coast, Central Coast and South Coast, as well at the Central Valley—any visitor is spoiled for choice, making a wine tour easy to work in to any pre-existing travel plans.
Sample local Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir or Syrah, just three of the seven leading local grape varietals. You haven’t really experienced California until you’ve tasted its grapes and meandered through its scenic vineyards.
