Wine Region Tours

French, Italian & UK Wine Region Tours

Cycling for Softies offers a bespoke collection of cycling tours through the heart of some of Europe's most renowned wine regions. Pedal gently through the vines at your own pace, stop often and indulge your senses in these beautiful regions, try the local tipple and fall in love with these unique cycling holidays.

Why not try the wine regions a little closer to home with our UK cycling holidays in the lush green hills of Sussex and the Cotswolds. Indulge in some of England's finest sparkling wines and enjoy a guided tour and tasting experience.

From relaxing with a glass of Prosecco in Venice, the sweet wines that Alsace is famed for, glasses of Chianti in the rolling Tuscan hills or sipping one of the deep reds of Burgundy, our experts have compiled this selection of their favourite wine tours that you can discover.

If you're undecided on which of our fabulous wine regions you'd like to visit, why not view our 'Softies Wine Regions Map'. Our experts have designed this interactive map to help you discover our top 10 wine regions with a suggested cycling holiday in each that we're sure you'll love.
