A WINE and FOOD TOUR OF NORTHERN ITALY
Decadent yet unpretentious, cultivate your inner connoisseur as you explore the richness and pleasure of Italian Living
This week-long tour invites you to relax into Italy’s beauty and savor its delights.
Friendly and knowledgeable artisans like Sandro Minelli – Barolo’s top/local sommelier – share wine-making insights with you as you sip on some of the best wines in the world.
Find truffles as you venture off into the woods with Beppe; your truffle hunter and his trained dog and learn all about their foundational element in the slow food movement.
Visit the Sartori cellars, a most prestigious vintner in the Veneto, and allow the Pisoni brothers to show you their organic vineyard after sampling some of their heavenly Vin Santo with lunch.
Discover why things always taste better in Italy, whether it be the Michelin Star-rated cuisine in a 13th century castle or “agriturismo” farm-style cooking, as we wander off the beaten path.
And please, feel free to day dream while ambling through lush vineyards and rolling countryside, or spending the day luxuriating in your richly-appointed Relais & Chateau accommodation in the 16th Century hilltop town of Upper Bergamo.
