Wine Tasting Tour - #1 Day Trip from Amsterdam
By private car I'll drive you into the lush green country side. Our first stop is a local dairy farm. Feed and pet the cows, see how wooden shoes are made, experience gouda cheese making an tasting.

Continue to a small local town to visit the traditional windmill. Learn how the windmill is operated and how it can grind the grain for the village. We get some fresh baked bread from the local bakery.
Are you getting hungry? Then we stop for a small bite to eat: coffee with Dutch apple pie or maybe some 'kibbeling' (battered cod fish) or another local treat.

At a local vineyard the winemaker will share his passion showing you the vineyard and explaining about wine making. Special new grapes like Johanniter, Solaris, Muscaris, Regent, Pinotin, etc are especially cultivated for our climate and make great wines.

Now it is time to taste the wine with bread & cheese!

A Recent Review of this tour

A wonderful day exploring real Dutch life outside the city of Amsterdam. Stefka assembled the perfect combination of history, culture, and good food and wine for our full day adventure. She picked us up at our hotel in Amsterdam, and drove us to the countryside, taking the time to find an operational windmill open on Sunday. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and would highly recommend this tour and Stefka to others wanting to sample life outside the city.
