Ramblers Walking Holidays launches ‘food and wine’ programme

Ramblers Walking Holidays has introduced a range of ‘food and wine’ breaks.

The 13 trips will combine exploring on foot with trying a destination’s “most famous gastronomic offerings”, the company said.

A spokesperson added: “Whether it be wandering through fragrant markets with a local guide, discovering the secrets to making an award-winning wine or trying one’s own hand at recreating a local dish as part of a cookery lesson, they include a flavoursome mix of experiences to satiate many an appetite.”
