In October 2018 we’re escorting a select group of gourmet explorers on a tour of Italy’s sophisticated and picturesque Piedmont region. Famed Barolo and Barbaresco wines, the chocolate and hazelnut concoction gianduja and the star of the culinary world: the rare white truffle, vermouth, cinematography: all were born in the Piedmont.
Highlights of the week:
– Wonderful food – many meals are included; rustic to refined
– Marvelous, renowned wines, and our own sommelier in Turin to share much about the many appellations and styles of Piedmont
– Truffle lesson with one of the judges from the Alba International Truffle Fair
– Lodging at pristine, romantic accommodations
The allure of Sicily lies in its contrasts. Palermo, cradle of the Mediterranean and “a city of extremes, a mixture of panache and poverty.” Along our west to east route we visit Agrigento’s magical Greek temples; top wineries; meals that are tantalizing cultural mosaics. Majestic Mt. Etna and its surrounding cities, once the center of Magna Graecia, mark the end of our 9-day adventure.
