Italy Wine Tours
Italy has some of the oldest wine-producing regions, and is the world’s largest producer of wine by volume. The geography of Italy lets the country produce a huge variety of wines. Its long shoreline and many mountains provide endless microclimates that make each region’s wine unique.
That variety – along with Italy’s incredible cuisine – make it a perfect destination for anyone interested in a wine tour. From the famous wines of Tuscany to the lesser know – but just as delightful – wine of other regions, hiring a guide for your Italy wine tour will introduce you to the wonders of Italian wine, and the land and people that produce it.
More than just wine tastings, wine tours with a guide can get you access to the vineyards, wineries, and cellars of some of the top-ranked names – and the family-owned estates only the locals know about! Remember: Not all of the best wines get exported, so your guide can introduce you to wines you simply can’t sample anywhere else.
Many tours include a leisurely lunch at a local winery or stand-out restaurant, where you can taste the local food, matched perfectly to the wine. Your guide will also help you discover surprises – like the ancient Etruscan tomb, recently turned into a cellar – that are made possible only by knowledgeable, local wine tour guides.
If you’ve always been curious about what goes on inside a winery? Then sign up for a Italy wine tour that takes you from the vineyards, through the winery and shows you every stage.Read More ...
