For a real decadent break that will make you truly feel that you're on holiday, how about tracking your favourite vintage to its source in the vineyards of Burgundy, Napa Valley, Victoria or South Africa? Wine tasting sessions are both relaxing and educational (honest!) – and you'll come out with a much better appreciation of the variables that make your top tipples so delicious, plus a few new favourites to boot. So wander round a vineyard or a wine estate, or book onto a city tasting class, and prepare your palate for exquisite pleasure and your mind for some classy new vintner vocabulary that's bound to impress at your next dinner party. Cheers!
