Based in the centre of historical Turin, this three night break allows guests to experience the wonderful wines of Piedmont mid-week and weekends throughout the year. The tour starts on the first evening with a tutored tasting session of three local wines with cheeses and snacks.
On day two, a chauffeur will accompany you throughout the day in the vineyards, where you will be welcomed as the guests of three premium wineries. The tour will focus on the world-famous appellations of Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero, where predominantly red wines will be tasted. At each of the three wineries that you will visit, you will enjoy a full tour of the estate and cellars with an English-speaking guide and tastings of a wide variety of wines. After being taken back to Turin at the end of the day, a traditional three course dinner will be served in a nearby restaurant with three Piedmont wines.
The third day will be spent in Turin itself, where an English-speaking guide will accompany you on a half day private tour of the city on foot. As well as seeing many of the famous historical sights, you will enjoy a chocolate and wine pairing tasting in an authentic Piemontaise café.
