About Taste Vacations

We’re passionate about food, wine, and beer, and love to learn about (and taste!) these delectables straight from the source. We are serious about creating memorable culinary vacations but like to keep things casual and fun. You need not be a connoisseur to enjoy our tours. You just need enthusiasm and an appetite for new experiences.

Why Travel with Taste Vacations


We’re no stranger to the complexities, hiccups, and joys of planning epic vacations. We launched Taste Vacations because we love exploring the world’s best food, wine, and beer destinations and wanted to share our passion with others.  Our small Taste Vacations team has over 50 years of experience in the specialty tour industry and has the knowledge and experience needed to make your next vacation unforgettable.

Public Or Private – Take Your Pick

The majority of our travelers join us on a memorable private vacation to one of our exciting tour destinations where they gather their friends and family and choose their own dates. In addition, we offer a select number of small group public tours each year. This coming year’s public tours are Spain Food & Wine Tour, Belgium Beer Tour, Chile & Argentina Wine Tour, and a brand new South Africa Wine & Safari Tour.

We’re In Good Company

Taste Vacations is a part of the Zephyr United group of brands, which makes us sound big but in reality we are a small group of dedicated travel industry veterans. Our sister company, Zephyr Adventures, has been in business since 1997.  We drew upon Zephyr’s experience running active food and drink tours when creating Taste Vacations.

Zephyr United is also extremely involved in the food, wine, and beer worlds as organizer of the International Food Blogger ConferenceWine Media ConferenceWine Marketing & Tourism ConferenceBeer Marketing & Tourism Conference, and Beer Now Conference. It is these industry connections that allow us to create unique, intimate, and hands-on food and drink vacations for you.
