Latvia’s “Wine Country”

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!


Latvia’s wine region was once known for the northernmost vineyard in the world. Today, winemakers are experimenting with grape varieties but producing most wines from locally grown fruit. Ever tried rhubarb or raspberry wine? This could be your first chance! More unusual flavours include birch sap and pumpkin. Inspired by the traditions of wine producers in France, California and elsewhere, Latvia’s entrepreneurial spirits are opening their wineries to visitors and setting up dedicated tasting rooms in beautiful locations such as manor estates, riverside farms and historical cellars. Enjoy west Latvia’s wine route and meet the local wine-making community! The tour will also take in the romantic town of Kuldīga with its winding cobbled streets, cute wooden buildings and an incredible red brick bridge spanning the River Venta and facing the widest waterfall in Europe. You’ll be travelling by bus.
