Our tours offer wine tastings in boutique wineries, in historical castles as well as in new designer's estates. Altogether, though, we propose a full immersion in the region, an experience of the nature which created the wines, of their adventurous stories, and of the winemakers and owners who makes them. Nature and the picture-perfect Italian landscapes determine the terroirs, and much of the food specialties. The rich cities of art - Florence, Siena, Verona, Torino for example - were essential to build wineries and make good wines, being inhabited by the more demanding drinkers. The roads that we travel are historical treasures, that connected the wineries with the European markets since Roman and medieval times. All that is linked together, and is hidden somewhere in your glass. Our travel style is, besides tasting the best and the more particular wines, discovering what vin du terroir really means. It's a full immersion in the region’s lifestyle and genius loci, so that, once back home, swirling and tasting Primitivo, Marsala, Chianti Classico or Barolo, you recall a glimpse of our tour, and a snapshot of Italy in their smell and in their reflections.
Always a tailor-made experience
With Italian Wine Tours you buy from local craftsmen. It’s like going to the tailor, or getting shoes made to measure. Even our more classic tours are always tailor-made experiences. For your experience in Tuscany, Sicily or another region that you select, you can choose among five travel modes.

Italianwinetours is possibly the first dedicated wine tours company in Italy, registered in 2001. I first worked as a geologist all around Italy, I led small group tours for première walking, wine and food tours operators. After endless beautiful trails, from The Etna to the Chianti and the Dolomites, after hundreds or tastings, and of great, slow-food meals, I resolved to squeeze and share all my experiences in these tours.
We do not work with big numbers, we are a “boutique” operation, with few expert guides. All our tours are tailor made: itinerary, hotels, and price. If you have a deep feel for nature, in addition, discovering a wine region with a geologist is like seeing the Uffizi museum with an art expert, or Pompeii with an archeologist, so to speak. And drinking, and eating with a passionnate wine and food lover is - we hope - a pleasure and a plus that you will share.
