Famous worldwide for its wines, Italy, is second to none in scenery and tradition. A trip through the Italian vineyards, (each one of the 20 Regions in Italy produces wine, including the islands of Sicily and Sardinia), and more than 2,000 grape varieties.

Organized Wine Tours
An organized Tour of  wineries is probably the best bet. We can arrange anything from a day-trip to a tour of several days
which  include meals and accommodations along  the way. From Northwest Italy the Piedmont Region (with Top red wines), via Lombardy  Region (Franciacorta wines) to Veneto Region (Soave-Valpolicella-Bardolino-Prosecco) to Northeast Italy,
the Friuli Region, ( with the Top italian white wines).

Visiting an Italian winery can be arranged in advance. In a few days, you can visit 2 or 3 wine Regions with many wineries which open their doors to visitors or you can have a 15 day organized Tour to explore, from the vineyards of Friuli to the wine cellars of Piedmont, wine tasting in the Veneto and Tuscany Regions, combining wine, gastronomy and culture.

Italy Wine Regions
A list of Italy’s wine-producing regions reads like a regular Italian map - from the Top Italian White wine producers in Friuli to the top red wine producers in Piedmont in the north, to top italian suite wines of Sicily in the south. Some Regions are more famous than others - like the Chianti Region for white wines in Tuscany or the red Barolo wine  producers of the Piedmont.

For Groups cruising the Mediterranean we offer from various Ports a day excursion (Wine Tours) to visit Wineries and
Wine Cellars with Wine testing: Portugal (Porto-Lisbon) - Spain (Cadiz-Valencia-Barcelona-Palma)

Open Cellars Day

Wine enthusiast? There is a annual event called “Cantine Aperte” (means Open Cellars). It’s hold every year when wineries
throughout the country throw open their doors in a kind of open house. Visitors can see how the wine is made, sample it and even taste other local products like chees, olive oil, smoked  ham, speck... Cantine Aperte takes place in May each year.
