Trip Summary

Piedmont Wine Tasting Holiday

Discover the famous wines of the Piedmont region in true style on a luxury break to Turin. Based at the 5* Principi di Piemonte hotel, guests will have full access to the hotel’s superb facilities, including the wellness centre and spa. After checking in on the first day, the afternoon and evening will be free to do as you please. We would be very pleased to recommend a restaurant for dinner and reserve you a table this evening.

After breakfast on day two, you will be met at the hotel by an English-speaking specialist driver/guide, who will accompany you throughout the day on a private basis. The focus of the day will be the world-famous Barolo appellation. Barolo is made entirely from the Nebbiolo grape and is produced in only eleven villages. During the course of the day, you will be surprised by the substantial differences created by the hills, vineyard exposure and the soil components. In the morning, you will visit two premium Barolo wineries for full tours and tastings. These wineries will differ in terms of size and wine-making techniques, which will allow you to taste different styles of Barolo wines.

You will then have some free time for lunch. Your guide will be more than happy to recommend a suitable restaurant depending on how hungry you are feeling on the day. In the afternoon, enjoy a tour and tastings at a third Barolo winery. You will be taken back to the hotel at the end of the day. In the evening, a seven course wine pairing dinner will be served in a Michelin-starred restaurant.

For those who would like a four day experience, your driver/guide will return on day three and accompany you on a second day of tours. You will firstly be welcomed as the guests of a local truffle hunter for a unique and unforgettable experience. This morning, you will learn everything about truffles; the local traditions, the growth environments, and the various truffle varieties and their characteristics. Accompanied by the truffle hunter and his dog, you will follow the natural truffle grounds to experience real truffle picking along a scenic trail. At the end of the walk, enjoy a tasting of fresh truffle, shaved on a local cheese and served with salami and a glass of wine. An amazing truffle tasting lunch will then be served in a pretty restaurant in the village. Your three truffle-inspired courses will be served alongside two glasses of Barolo wine.

Before being taken back to your hotel, enjoy a tour and tasting at a local winery. The evening will then be at leisure.
