Piedmont – Pure elegance, Pure class, Pure deliciousness!

Piedmont’s most famous wine appellations, Barolo and Barbaresco, sit on the world wine stage next to the great wines of the Northern Rhone, Cote Rotie and Hermitage, their French neighbors.

About The Tour

Barolo and Barbaresco are among the most famous appellations in the world.  The wines are powerful in a way that Tuscan wines are not. Some prefer them to Tuscan wines but why chose? These monumental wines can age for decades. Piemontese wines are quintessentially artisanal.  Indeed, there is a lovely Piemontese expression that states “the best compost (or fertilizer) for a vineyard are the footprints of the winemaker in his (or her) vineyard”.

Alba Once or twice a week the air in the town of Alba is perfumed by the sweet, nutty, delicious aroma from the Nutella factory in the town.  On Saturdays the old city center becomes a bustling market brimming with local fresh fruits, vegetables, cheeses, local meats and of course irresistible white truffles and other mushrooms in all shapes and sizes.

After visiting the market, many of our guests have remarked “If there is a heaven it looks like this”

Other Destinations


Umbria – Italy’s Hidden Jewel and its Green Heart

Less well-known than neighboring Tuscany (and therefore with fewer tourists), Umbria is blessed with unforgettable landscapes from the Appenine mountains to Lake Trasimeno and the Marmore water falls and historic cities including Perugia, Spoleto and Assisi.


Alsace – The Beautiful Crossroad of France and Germany

Alsace, France’s eastern most wine region, was part of Germany for many disputed years. It was a contested region through the 19th and 20th century and the wines are French but made from German varietals. Storybook villages seem more German than French in Alsace. The food, starting with the famous sauerkraut seems more German than French. And yet this is France in full. And the spectacular wines are 100% French in their strength and their expression.


Bordeaux – The world’s most important wine producing region. A must for wine lovers!

Bordeaux is, simply, the most important wine producing region in the world. Its wines are copied but never equaled. The region is the most important quality wine producing region in France and it is vast. Our knowledgeable staff will take you inside the most beautiful chateaux to meet the proprietors and taste their wines and share meals prepared from local Girondin ingredients in their own kitchens.
