After breakfast on day two, meet your English-speaking specialist driver/guide for a full day wine tour. There will be a maximum of eight guests on the tour. During the course of the day, your guide will reveal the secrets behind cultivating the Nebbiolo grape, visiting a variety of vineyards to see the appellation’s unique terroir first-hand. You will also enjoy full tours and tastings at two wineries. At a characterful restaurant in a picturesque village, a three course lunch will provide the opportunity to sample traditional Piedmontese dishes. Please note that drinks will not be included at lunch and can be ordered and paid for locally on the day. After spending some further time exploring the UNESCO hillsides and medieval villages, you will be taken back to Turin at the end of the day.

If you would like to stay an extra night in Turin, the four day break includes a further opportunity to taste the delights of the local cuisine. After breakfast, take a short walk to a cookery venue in the city centre for a fascinating and fun three hour experience as part of a small group. Under the expert tuition of an Italian Chef, you will prepare an authentic three course meal, using traditional ingredients such as pasta and the region’s famous truffles. You will then taste the fruits of your labour over a convivial three course lunch, served alongside a selection of local wines. After lunch, spend a relaxing afternoon at a charming wine bar, tasting three wines with platters of cheeses and meats. The evening will then be free to do as you please.
