Food & Drink Tours

Whether cooking is your passion or if you simply enjoy indulging in good food, the smells, tastes and experiences from a food and drinks holiday can leave memories and skills of a lifetime.

From cookery classes to wine tasting and sampling local food, one of the best ways to truly discover a country’s identity is through its food. Don an apron, learn culinary secrets and cook alongside a celebrity chef, enjoy a gourmet dinner with paired wines.  Cook fresh pasta in Italy, savour San Sebastian's renowned pintxos tapas, or learn about some of the finest olives oil in Verona’s Valpolicella.

Enjoy wine tasting in some of the world’s best wine regions; sample port-wine in the hillsides above River Douro in Oporto or test your palate on locally produced fine wine in France’s wine-producing regions. Savour a glass in historic bodegas in Spain’s Haro or enjoy a wine tasting of La Rioja’s rich red, fine white and crisp rose wines.

With celebrity chefs, demonstrations, festive drinks and seasonal foods, a food and drinks holiday is a veritable feast for food lovers and a must for anyone with a passion for food and drink. Take the chance to improve your kitchen skills and knowledge, awaken your taste buds with new and exotic spices and ingredients, or simply watch on as incredible chefs weave their culinary magic.

In addition to enjoying wonderful foods, learning from educational tastings and discovering the secrets to tantalizing wine pairings, our selection of food and drinks holidays are enjoyed in stunning settings, from a cooking in a converted former military fortress restraint, set in a beautiful village overlooking Lake Garda, to enjoying a wine tasting in the very vineyard its made.

Whatever pleases your taste buds, enjoy master classes and food and wine samplings; browse the markets for fresh produces and spices on a food and drinks holiday with Newmarket Holidays.
