Gift Vouchers for a Food & Wine Pairing Tour of Edinburgh
A Walking Food and Wine Tasting Experience of Edinburgh: A Perfect Indulgence for Wine Lovers and Foodies!
The recipient of this voucher will take their taste buds on a journey with our unique tour – a perfect indulgence for wine lovers and foodies alike! Our three-hour tour begins at The Balmoral Hotel, where they will enjoy Champagne followed by white wine and a delicious food pairing.
They'll learn why Champagne sparkles, explore the flavours of Italian white wine and discover how to pair wine with food. After an hour at The Balmoral, we'll walk through Princes Street Gardens to The Scottish Cafe and Restaurant where you'll taste two more wines , one rose, one red, each paired with beautiful artisan Scottish produce.
Your friend will need to leave room for dessert! Our third venue, the stunning dining room at Twenty Princes Street, is where we'll sit down to a very special Scottish sweet treat paired with sparkling wine.
We visit three unique and memorable locations, each with its own distinct character. Our tours run rain or shine and are presented by Joanne or Bronwyn, both experienced and passionate tasters and foodies with over 15 years of experience working in wine tourism and trade. The recipient of this voucher will learn to taste five beautiful wines and discover how to pair them with artisan foods.

- A qualified and experienced wine specialist and presenter to guide you throughout the tour

What guests have said...
"Our walking wine tour was better than we could possibly have hoped! We had absolutely no idea what to expect, but Joanne's open, welcoming manner put us instantly at our ease. The venues were immaculately chosen, we hadn't been to any of them previously and are already planning return trips! Joanne's depth of knowledge and her clarity in communicating it are astonishing, every question we asked spurred a fascinating and engaging delve into the wine world, and we learned so much more than we would have anticipated. By far the standout, however, was Joanne's deft guidance through the process of actually engaging with the experience of wine. This has, without hyperbole, genuinely changed our approach to wine, opening our eyes to a hitherto unanticipated world of experience. We can't wait until we have an excuse to go again!"
