Cooking & Wine Adventure in Piedmont's Barolo Wine Country
** This is a sample itinerary to give you ideas for your custom designed tour so prices are approximate only.
Immerse yourself in exceptional, authentic cooking, food, wine and local life experiences, getting to know a cast of local people so you feel part of their lives. Food lovers treasure this region for its hazelnuts, white truffles and chocolate. Barolo and Barbaresco wines rank among Italy’s top reds.
Cook typical local dishes with elder women in a village kitchen and creative dishes with an innovative, young chef in his restaurant. Eat, drink and connect with them heart to heart as you savour your creations together.
Sit down in private visits with welcoming Barolo and Barbaresco wine makers. They discuss and drink their wines with you in their cellars and you exchange stories. They feel like new local friends.
Soak up beauty in this exquisite countryside of hills crowned with castles and little towns, and covered with vineyards, hazelnut trees and forests.
Visit an artisan cheese maker on his farm way up in the hills to see how he makes his cheese naturally. Stroll with a hazelnut producer among their trees to discover how they grow them and what products they make. Nutella anyone?
