Why Travel With Us?

Whether or not you’ve been to Italy before, chances are you haven’t been to Piedmont. We’ve arranged for a special tour to explore the superb wines and foods of this beautiful region. Svetlana has put her personal touch on this tour, which will highlight some of her favorite wines and wineries.

•    Piedmont is considered by many to be the best region in Italy for wine and food.

•    A small group of 14 lucky guests will have a private, highly personalized, escorted visit to a place that few tourists have visited.

•    Our certified, English-speaking tour guides are specialists in the foods and wines of the region.

•    We’ll visit medieval towns, magnificent castles, enchanting wine caves, lively markets, and the gorgeous rolling hills of the Langhe and Roero wine regions.

•    We’ll have three different kinds of lodging experiences: a hotel in the historic center of a large city, a dramatic villa in the heart of wine country, and a guesthouse in a medieval village.

•    During our two days in the historic city of Turin, we’ll visit its plazas, palaces, galleries, museums, and opulent baroque cafes - three of the best in Italy; we’ll also visit the original Eataly, established by the Slow Food Movement to showcase the agricultural products from the region.

•    We’ll visit the wineries of some of Svetlana's favorite wines and receive VIP treatment, with private tours and tastings with the winemakers.

•    Two of our nights will be in a magnificent villa with winery on a hill in the midst of acres of vineyards; we’ll have a hands-on cooking lesson there with the villa's chef.

•    For the following three nights we’ll stay in the medieval village of Barolo, famous for its namesake wine, called the King of Wines and the Wine of Kings

•    We’ll visit the Agenzia di Pollenzo for a guided tour of the Wine Bank, a workshop, and wine tasting. The Wine Bank is a repository for the best wines of Italy. It is also a museum of Italian wine, offering visitors the chance to taste the wines from some of the most prestigious wineries.

•    We’ll taste and hunt for white truffles with a hunter and his dog. Italian white truffles are very highly esteemed and are the most valuable on the global market.

•    We’ll have a private visit to an artisanal cheese farm where D.O.P. Mulassano and Langhe Tuma cheeses are made from raw sheep milk, followed by a tasting of cheeses, bread and wine.

•    Our tour is being arranged by Tour de Forks, an expert in “Uncommon Epicurean Adventures.”

•    The tour is totally customized for us, to fit with Svetlana’s expertise and interests; it will not be found in a catalogue. Because this is a custom tour, we have the ability to make some modifications to fit the interests of the group.

•    We are keeping the price affordable so that our clients and friends will be able to take advantage of this special opportunity

•    We’ll offer some optional add-on days if you want to stay longer, or you can make your own arrangements.
