Lived up to the reputation
Kris & Emma
This was our first ever trip to Italy and we chose Piemonte just because we’ve always liked wine from there. It did not disappoint!
Better than Tuscany
We have been to Tuscany and other parts of Italy, but prefer to return to Piedmont every year after this trip. Our guides were upbeat, spoke excellent English, and were great to spend the day with.
Local food and wine
It's amazing to visit places such as Alba, Asti, Canelli, Serrallunga de Crea, and Turin. The guides are so knowledgeable, reliable, and professional. They took us to all the best local vendors.
