Piedmont

friuli and venice italy - adagio travel Sold Out

In October 2017 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

Lake Orta, Northern Italy Sold Out

We start on Italy’s tiny Lake Orta, a shiny jewel amidst the stunning Alps. Days on the lakes, exploring their islands and chairlifting to the tops of mountains; evenings tasting secrets from our Villa’s double Michelin-starred chef, followed by spirited discussions of our day’s discoveries. Then we travel south to a 5-star spa hotel, in pursuit of the mysterious white truffle… Won’t you join us?
