Verona, Lake Como, & Piedmont's White Truffle Festival

Information will be available in the 1st quarter of 2025

This tour has strategically been planned to coincide with Piedmont’s legendary annual Truffle Festival, one of Italy’s most important culinary events. Home of the internationally renown “Slow Food” movement, Piedmont is one of Italy’s leading gastronomic areas. Moreover, Piedmont’s illustrious Barolo & Barbaresco are some of the most coveted (and most expensive) of all Italian wines.

In addition to Piedmont, we’ll be visiting three other notable wine districts. The area surrounding Verona is home to beautiful Amarone wines. The Franciacorta region makes some of the world’s most complex sparkling wines. We’ll also have a tasting in the Soave area where brilliant white still wines are produced.

The trip will begin in Venice and end in the Piedmont district near Turin. You should consider arriving early, or staying after the trip has finished to experience these two wonderful cities.
