Top 10 hotels for wine lovers

3rd February, 2014 by Lauren Eads

The wine enthusiast is spoilt for choice when searching for a holiday that combines luxury accommodation with world-class wine tasting.

Vineyards_Lake_OkanaganWine tourism, or enotourism as it is known, has grown massively since the turn of the 21st century with hotels now packaging holidays specifically targeted at those looking to immerse themselves in the world of winemaking by touring a region’s vineyards and sampling its wines.

Wine tourism is an area with enormous room for growth with some regions only just beginning to tune into its potential.

Many, however, are well ahead of the trend with a host of wineries now offering boutique and luxury accommodation just steps from their vineyards.

Whether its a rural retreat in France full of rustic charm, or an avant-garde luxury hotel in Spain’s Rioja regions – there is a hotel for every wine lover.

    Hello, I think argos in Cappadocia Hotel from Turkey-Cappadocia region might have been in this list too.
    The hotel has vines around its restaurant, Seki and also produces its own wines from its vineyards with Syrah and a local indeginious variety of Kalecik Karası. The Syrah wine has received a gold medal in the International Syrah du Monde Competition in 2013 :))

  2. Merci beaucoup pour votre article qui nous a fait chaud au cœur. En effet, viticulteurs nous-même et issus de familles de viticulteurs depuis plusieurs générations, nous sommes investis dans le tourisme viticole depuis 8 ans déjà. Nos vins de Chusclan méritent d’être connus et reconnus parmi les meilleurs vignobles de France, au même titre que la richesse du patrimoine Gardois. C’est à cette promotion que nous nous attachons en recevant nos hôtes avec beaucoup de chaleur humaine, privilégiant le confort et l’authenticité, et en leur servant de guide pour découvrir cette partie du Sud de la France qui nous tient à cœur. Merci encore.
