BKWine has launched the spring program 2009 with two new wine and food tours. The destinations include Périgord (with truffles, duck and wine), and the wins and food of the Alentejo in Portugal. The detailed programs are available on www.bkwine.com. “The trend towards active holidays seems to continue” says Britt Karlsson, founder of BKWine, “so I think that the two spring tours will fill up quickly”. Britt continues: “I am particularly happy that travellers have started to discover that springtime is also a good time for wine and food travel. There’s no harvest, of course, but there are plenty of things happening in the wine cellars. Plus summer is approaching with brighter evenings and warmer weather”.
The two tours on the spring program are both classics:
– Truffles, foie gras and wine in the Périgord (south-west France), including a real truffle hunt, a half day cooking workshop with duck and foie gras, and wine of course, February 11-15
– The Alentejo in Portugal, a wine region that is on the forefront of the modern winemaking in Portugal, with gourmet specialities like the pata negra ham, March 25-29
