You decide when, which hotel range and budget (choosing between Classic, Casual Inns, or Vip Travel modes), which Travel style meets your preferences (Wine Roads & Towns focusing on history, and art, or Wine Trails, focused on walking and nature, or Top Wines & Chefs, including superstar wines and chefs).
Besides, we offer some fixed departures open group tours. Our website, hence, has no fixed (prices/inclusions/hotels) packages. It has plenty of travel experiences, as suggestions for you. We manufacture your holiday with travel styles and modes that fit you better.
Large companies target thousands of virtual, average buyers, like supermarkets. Italian Wine Tours is for demanding people, sells hand-crafted tours, that fit like made to measure shoes, or a tailor-made dress. Even our classic itineraries are fine-tuned experiences, based on your taste and budget, on the season, on regional specialities.
Large companies offer solutions for every country, like supermarkets. You connect with a vendor, then travel with guides, and subcontractors that you don’t know.
We work just in Italy. It’s a lot of work: there are 20 regions and 350+ appellation wines. We selected our wine destinations, where we know depth cellars, winemakers, trails, history, cuisine. And we are happy being “small”. Echoing that Bourbon’s slogan, we don’t want to be n°1!
You commonly find glamourous VIP/exclusive/luxury wine tours, with 5* hotels, with the word “Supertuscan” everywhere. With Italian Wine Tours, luxury is still an option, but first of all we offer a complete fulfilling experience of our world, wines and everything else. Start tasting traditional, generally affordable, wines, then step up to the rich ones, like a climax, to the top of the pyramid.
We are proud of what a large company can’t manage with. We suggest where it’s better to be in each season, whether Tuscany or Veneto, Sicily or Sudtirol. If you want truffles, or just pressed olive oil, for example, november will be the best moth to travel. Among hundreds of good wineries, we select rustic family estates, boutique wineries, futuristic designer’s estates, looking like a spacecraft, and venerable, noble estate, in business from 500-1000 years. Food? There are no fixed menus, but mostly local dishes, varying from season to season. “Lasagna” in Bologna, in Sicily “Pasta cu’i sardi”, “Ribollita” in Tuscany, delightful “cicchetti” in Venice. Red mullet in august, dolphinfish in october, and so on...
Just contact us, let us figure out your taste and expectations. We will work hard to create the best tour for your Italian dream.
