Our tours aren’t simply about stellar wine and gourmet food. They’re an entry point to Italian culture.

Wine is a magnificent portal, a door that leads to the world of the winemaker: equal parts farmer and artist, scientist and alchemist. It opens onto the Italian kitchen, being a soul mate to both rustic cucina povera and the most elegant haute cuisine. Wine opens the way to history — to stories of ancient Romans, Renaissance dukes, and Savoy royalty who shaped what we eat and drink. And it’s a conduit to modern-day Italy, with its lively wine bars and sidewalk cafés, bucolic landscapes, and art-filled cities.

These are the worlds La Dolce Vita Wine Tours explores. (Click on image.)
