California Food & Wine Holidays

Food & Wine Holidays in California

Introduction

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.

Discover new flavours right in your hotel

A luxury holiday with Wexas means staying in hotels that go further to make your trip a delight, and we offer a selection of hotels that specialise in gastronomy, ensuring memorable meals and cutting edge west coast cuisine.

Many of our hotels offer farm-to-table eating, working with local farms or growing their own ingredients on the premises. With kitchens led by award-winning chefs, and a staff passionate about food, your meals will become experiences worth writing home about.

One thing is for sure—on a food holiday to California, you’ll want to bring your appetite.
