UK & Ireland Holidays
Discover the very best of the British Isles and travel though landscapes rich in history and tradition. From the quiet glens in the Scottish Highlands, surrounded by peaceful lochs and a beautiful coastline, to the sprawling vineyards of Kent and Sussex, and quaint, quintessential English villages, explore some of the most beautiful parts of Britain on a holiday in the UK and Ireland with SmoothRed.
Let SmoothRed take you on a journey through the world of English winemaking – across the vineyards of Kent and Sussex, lauded in the industry for the quality of their sparkling wines. Visit quaint, quintessential English villages, enjoy the countryside views across the Garden of England and taste a wide range of the country’s very finest produce.
When you think of great wine, it can be easy to imagine the heartlands of Europe: Tuscany’s rolling hills or the sprawling vineyards which reach out over the Bordelaise countryside. Most people don’t consider the booming viticulture epicentre in the South of England.
That’s all changing, though. As the summers grow warmer and the climate becomes more suitable to winemaking, the English wine industry is leaping from strength to strength. Now, the little English wineries popping up around the country are beginning to produce wines that are more than capable of matching anything from the continent. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Bacchus are varieties of grape that are beginning to thrive in the South East and feature heavily in the 500 vineyards in this corner of England.
SmoothRed planned a truly fabulous trip from Paris through Brittany to Normandy and back to Paris. Every part of the trip was wonderful and seamlessly executed. It was a trip of a lifetime! Without any hesitation or qualifications, we heartily recommend SmoothRed. They customized an extraordinary family trip.
Very well organised trip to Tuscany, getting in 2 wine regions. Lovely hotel with amazing view. The best part was our guide Paula who ensured our wine tasting tours were with smaller wineries which have authenticity and care for the environment. Highly recommend SmoothRed!
