(SOLD OUT) Tuscany + Cinque Terre Extension



With COVID numbers in a sharp decline in Italy and very low numbers in the countryside where the wineries are, we are excited to announce that we are taking a wonderful group of customers to Tuscany this spring.

We have room for two more if you'd like to join Sommelier Erica Archer this 7-night, May 1-8, Small-Group Trip to Tuscany visiting the region’s incredible wineries and experiencing the magnificent wines, food, architecture, art, and history that the region has to offer. We’ve also included an optional extension to CinqueTerre, May 8-11.

This will be our fourth Small-Group Wine Region trip to Tuscany. We've spoken will each and every winery that we'll visit to ensure that this is going to be a safe and beautiful experience for all. All wineries, hotels, and restaurants are requiring the US's triple-vaccination white card. There is currently some proof of negative COVID test requirements needed to get into Italy without quarantining. And also to return to the US. We will help coordinate the COVID test in Italy the day before departure.

Past trips have filled quickly. Do not delay in making your reservation for this trip if you’d like to join us.

If you love Italian wine, food, beautiful scenery, some adventure and relaxing too, then you are in for an incredible vacation.  In addition to visiting incredible wineries for exceptional wines and consuming some of the most incredible food the region has to offer, you’ll be learning a lot about the art of wine appreciation from a great teacher. Book early, as space is limited.
