Wine And Food Tours Italy. I spend at least 2 months travelling each year, especially in Italy, where I have the wonderful task of sourcing new “off the beaten track” & Italian product & travel experiences for our tours. My greatest inspiration to finding locavore from a village in Italy are the farmers markets in the villages, meeting local farmers and settling into one place for an extended period of time. We have great relationships with the producers of Slow Food throughout Italy and our wine and food tours visit many places that are not known outside of Italy.

My partners in Italy are the best, very flexible, very professional , and we now offer tours for couples, so you can travel when you want to. Occasionally I offer set departure date tours for small groups, no more than 10 people, and these are now in high demand. Our Slow Food tour has proved the most popular.This tour is covering the incredible “valley of food” between Turin and Bologna, and runs every year at the end of September to fit in with all the fairs and festivals that take place in those two regions at that time.
