Wine Experience

Request Information

Wine week experience is a full immersion journey in the 2 famous wine regions of Italy: Tuscany and Piedmont. In Tuscany we will visit 2 important regions such as Chianti Classico area and the region of Supertuscans in Bolgheri. In Piedmont we will go to the Barolo and Barbaresco areas. We will visit in total 8 wineries in 4 different days.   I choose the words wine experience to explain better the goal of this tour: to let feel our guests a formative experience of the mentioned wine regions. At the end of the tour the participant will have some technical information that will allow him/her to understand the principal characteristics of the Chianti, Barolo and Barbaresco wine areas.   This week tour is ideal for wine lovers and professionals that would like to get deep in the wine subject directly on the production places.   For the ones thinking that this wine full immersion is too involving (see the programme below), we have some easy programmes for you too! Just contact us.   I will be your guide explaining you in different ways ( lessons, visits to the wineries, wine notebooks etc.) all the fundamental aspects of these wines and their terroir.
