BKWine makes ”World’s Top Wine Tours” according to Travel and Leisure Magazine
Paris, August 23, 2010

BKWine has just been singled out as one of the world’s best wine tour organisers by (T+L). In their latest web feature T+L lists the “World’s Top Wine Tours” and BKWine is one of a handful of travel operators selected by Travel and Leisure. T+L singles out BKWine as the tour operator who is best for the traveller who wants to meet the winemakers and who wants to have a personal and unique experience. The full feature can be read here: is the internet version of the American travel magazine Travel and Leisure Magazine with around 4.5 million readers.

Britt Karlsson, founder of BKWine, comments: “We were very excited, happy and honoured when we heard that we had been selected by Travel and Leisure. What T+L says also underlines the things that we work hard to achieve: that our travellers should get a very personal and unique experience. I personally visit some 200 different wineries and winemakers every year so I know where the visits will be exceptional. And in a way, it makes me especially proud that an American travel magazine has selected us, a Swedish tour organiser, as one of the world leaders on wine tours!”

BKWine is a Paris (France) based Swedish niche tour organiser specialised in wine and food tours. BKWine organises around 30 wine and gastronomy tours each year to destinations in France, Italy, Spain, South Africa, Portugal and other wine regions. The wine tours are designed both for the enjoyment of individual wine lovers and wine enthusiasts, as well as for professional training and corporate events. All tours are led by BKWine’s wine experts and take the traveller “behind the scene” of the vineyards.
