Tours

Discover the wide variety of the native grapes of Sicily and the exciting emerging trend into high quality wines. Or the new wine growing estates on the ancient slopes of the volcano, Mt Etna. Drink the big powerful reds of southern Tuscany and explore the fascinating geological story and historical influences of the medieval mountaintop towns.

Each trip is designed for you – your wishes and your decisions. We can organize down to the last details and accompany your group as a wine guide. Or you may choose to make your tour freestyle – either with a private driver or plan your own road trip behind the wheel of the car of your choice – giving you lots of free time to do your own exploring after the scheduled vineyard visits.

In Sicily, try a jaunt to the island of Favignana, a master class in the intricacies of Marsala wine or a visit to the historic salt pans of Mozia. – it’s your choice. In Campania, a few days at the beach at Santa Maria di Castellabate, at the hot springs of Ischia or a tour of the National Archaeological Museum of Naples or perhaps a pizza-making lesson in the city of its birth!

Hotels, villas or apartments are based on guest preferences, whether 5-star pampered luxury or a 3-star cozy family-owned small hotel. We work with the best local providers to ensure impeccable service and client satisfaction. Our goal is an authentic experience, showing the novelties of each wine region while demonstrating the warmth and hospitality that is uniquely Italian. Destinations could be less known, but the trip will never be of less quality! Your trip will always be curated according to the individual’s goals in wine exploration, with groups of 2 to 10 people.
