New Food and Drink Vacation Company Launches
Taste Vacations Offers Worldwide Food, Wine, Spirits, and Beer Tours
RED LODGE, MT – September 9, 2014 −Zephyr Adventures announces a dramatic and delectable expansion of their tour operations. Already a leader in active travel in the U.S. and abroad for over 17 years, Zephyr is now adding upscale wine, beer, spirits, and food tours under the newly created brand Taste Vacations.
Taste Vacations was created because of growing demand for group vacations centered on beautiful wine regions, local food, craft beer, and high-end spirits. “We listen to our customers and this growth reflects the additional types of trips they’re asking for,” relays Zephyr Adventures owner and creator of Taste Vacations, Allan Wright.
Zephyr Adventures has already been running active hiking, biking, and multisport tours around the world that focus on wine, food, and beer. It is the popularity of these tours and the realization that some travelers prefer to leave the physical activity at home that brought the company to create Taste Vacations, focused solely on the local food and drink.
Some of the trips to be offered include:
- A wine and food tour to Spain, exploring the incredible cuisine of the Basque town of San Sebastián plus the wineries of La Rioja, Spain’s most prominent wine region.
- A food vacation to Peru, considered a hot bed of new and innovative culinary styles, including a visit to the top rated restaurant in Latin America and three hands-on cooking classes with different chefs, plus a day trip to the ancient city of Machu Picchu.
- A beer-focused trip to Belgium that visits over a dozen breweries, abbeys, a beer museum, and includes pairings of the areas most distinguished beers with time-honored Belgian culinary fare.
- A spirits tour to Kentucky that includes tasting Bourbons at boutique, famous, and up and coming distilleries; a trip to Churchill Downs to watch the races; a cooking class at a famous local chef’s private ranch and farm; and backstage passes to meet some of Kentucky’s warmest and most personable Bourbon industry figures.
“Everyone loves to focus on the local food scene while on vacation. Craft beer is hot, micro-distilleries are the new rage, and wine is still the drink of luxury,” says Wright. “Creating a luxury food and drink tour company just made sense to give discerning travelers options in all these areas.”
In addition to published group tour dates, private tours for corporate and small groups are available. For complete information visit www.TasteVacations.com.
