Custom Piedmont Tour

Enjoying a glass of red wine looking over the vineyards of PiedmontFor those seeking a wine tour of Piedmont, these names are legendary: Barbaresco, Barbera, Nebbiolo, and most famous of all, Barolo. The Langhe area of southern Piedmont, the land of some of Italy’s most prized wines, has become a well-known destination for those wanting northern Italy wine tours. Whether you are a wine connoisseur or a dilettante, Piedmont is a great spot for cookery courses featuring authentic Italian cuisine and of course for wine tours of Piemonte.

Less known, however, are the other charms you will discover on our Piedmont tours: the number of stunning medieval castles, the awesome sight of the snow-covered Alps, the genteel hospitality of the residents, the breathtaking views of steep hills and valleys, blanketed with vineyards.
