A Foodie's Dream

Cooking Class
Wine Tasting

Bruschetta

Italy is a food lover's dream, and each region, province, and town have their own unique take on the local ingredients. From the pecorino cheese, truffles, and Bistecca Fiorentina, in Tuscany to the Parmigiano Reggiano, Prosciutto di Parma, and Balsamic Vinegar di Modena of Emilia Romagna, no two offer the same cuisine. 
Spend a week learning, exploring, creating, and tasting delicious foods. Experience a cheesemaking class at a working farm, cook a classic Tuscan meal in a private apartment in Florence, and go on private food tours in Bologna and Modena.
Take part in an olive oil tasting with a trained olive oil sommelier, discovering the bouquet and top notes of monocultivar oils. Meet Italian beekeepers (and their bees) and taste the unique seasonal honeys of the region, from Ciliegia (cherry blossom) to Castagna (chestnut) 
You will eat at small, family-owned restaurants, taste the freshest, most authentic foods of the regions, and return home with the knowledge of how to prepare these meals in your own kitchen and a newfound appreciation for incorporating local, seasonal ingredients into your cooking.  

Do you love wine, history, and adventure? Explore small production vineyards that adhere to the time-honored traditions of winemaking. Taste DOCG wines, specific and unique to each region you visit. In Veneto, you will learn about the process of drying the grapes before pressing them to create ruby red Amarone, then explore the steep, rolling hills of  Valdbiadenne, where you will find the best Prosecco in Italy – Prosecco Superiore DOCG. In Emilia Romagna you will walk through vineyards filled with fossils from the period when the ocean covered this region, and sift sand, clay, and rich soil through your fingers as you see the grape vines up close. You will visit three local vineyards with an international travel writer and trained sommelier, meeting the families that create some of the region's signature wines, like Lambrusco, Albana, and Pignoletto. You can explore Tuscany, moving from rustic, local vineyards to the cellars of some of the finest Brunello producers in the world. Wine Tours include Wine Suitcase rentals so you have the opportunity bring home 6 or 12 bottles of local Italian wines you can't buy in the States.
