Tell us about the regions you visit. We feature top wine-producing regions of Italy, such as Piedmont, Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Sicily, Puglia, Le Marche and Umbria. Upcoming excursions include Sardinia and Emilia Romagna.

How do the trips work?

The tours are customized food- and wine-centered programs ideal for families, groups of friends or corporate events for any occasion or number of participants. We include a tour manager, who stays with the group throughout all activities, including meals. We provide private bus/drive transportation, select all the menus and pair the wines.

What trips are upcoming? 

Through a new partnership with EATinerari—a travel-based brand of Eataly food emporiums—we host a tour featuring the Great Wines of Friuli Venezia Giulia and the famous San Daniele Prosciutto Festival, June 23-29. An October tour will include Slow Food’s Salone del Gusto in Torino, the Piedmont wines and the Alba White Truffle Fair. Trips are limited to 12 guests, and geared toward the wine connoisseur, collectors and serious wine aficionados.
