Tour Overview

Taste your way around the boutique wineries and hilltop hamlets of one of Italy’s most famous wine producing regions. Right up in the North West of Italy, bordering France and Switzerland, is the charming and quaint region of Piedmont. Literally meaning “at the foot of the mountain”, Piedmont is situated in the shadow of the Alps, and is populated by endless hill top hamlets, boutique wineries and countless places to eat authentic Italian cuisine peculiar to the region. Start by exploring the azure waters of nearby Lake Maggiore—with its fascinating Borromean islands with their series of Baroque palaces and colourful rustic houses—before heading deep into Piedmont wine country to see how some of your favourite wines are made. From the sparkling wines of Asti to the small, rustic, independent producers you’ll visit in the charming areas of Langhe and Roero, and even the town of Barolo which gives its name to ‘The King of Wines’, there is plenty to discover (and sample!) on a trip to Piedmont.
