Trip Summary

Piedmont Wine Tasting Holiday

Based in the centre of historical Turin, this three night break allows guests to experience the wonderful wines of Piedmont mid-week and weekends throughout the year. The tour starts on the first evening with a tutored tasting session of three local wines with cheeses and snacks.

On day two, a chauffeur will accompany you throughout the day in the vineyards, where you will be welcomed as the guests of three premium wineries. The tour will focus on the world-famous appellations of Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero, where predominantly red wines will be tasted. At each of the three wineries that you will visit, you will enjoy a full tour of the estate and cellars with an English-speaking guide and tastings of a wide variety of wines. After being taken back to Turin at the end of the day, a traditional three course dinner will be served in a nearby restaurant with three Piedmont wines.
