Northern Italy WineEscapes
Our brand-new “WineEscapes”: luxury escorted wine tours in Piedmont, Lombardy and Veneto.
An out-of-the-ordinary program of luxury wine tours for couples of travelers through the most famous wine-producing regions of Northern Italy: Langhe, Franciacorta and Valpolicella.
In our 10-year experience in tailor-made wine tours, we have often realized that visitors like taking advantage of every single hour spent in Italy, trying to see, taste, enjoy and experience as much as they can.
Thus, my idea to apply “Tasting Tours style” of touring not only here in Piedmont where the renowned Barolo and Barbaresco wines are produced, but also to our fantastic wine-producing neighbours: Lombardy for the Franciacorta sparkling wines (one of the hidden wine country gems) and Veneto for the Amarone and Recioto wines.
Besides being some of my favourite, these wine regions are also a short drive away from Piedmont, so easy to reach after your holiday here.
Our new Northern Italy “WineEscapes” are specially designed for couples (2 participants) who like the idea to be pampered by a private guide and a professional driver. We leave you the freedom to only choose and book the hotels you like the best (we can provide our list of favourites) and the dates which are more convenient for you. My task will be to offer my extensive wine knowledge and passion and look after all the other details: tour guiding, driver, appointments at wineries and restaurants. No need to tell, I will be your private wine guide during this new unique wine adventure.
Just choose the tour option you like the best…and we are ready to go!
