6-night Truffles & Wine Tour – The Magic of Piedmont, Italy
October is a magical time to be in Piedmont: Harvest time coincides with the annual white truffle festival in Alba so it’s twice as exciting.
Piedmont is a mecca for wine lovers but especially so during the truffle season. Alba is the epicenter of the white truffle which can command astronomical prices. We’ll have the good fortune to visit and stay in this beautiful town at the height of the truffle season: 2020 will be the 90th year of the International Alba White Truffle Fair (Fiera Internazionale Tartufo Bianco d’Alba) so there is likely something extra special in store.
It’s no small coincidence that the area is also famous for their wines, so you be sure we’ll schedule VIP visits to some of the best wineries of Barolo and Barbaresco.
Although the Tuscans may disagree, Piedmont is God’s country. Characterized by unique rolling hills and a verdant landscape, it has a deceiving rustic setting. Behind many of those enclosures are state-of-the art wine making facilities and winemakers with the vision to produce world-class wines. We’ll become very familiar with the 2 B’s: Barolo & Barbaresco and probably put on a few kilos working our way from winery to winery. The cuisine is extraordinary with a distinct French dimension.
On this 6 night/7 day Piedmont wine vacation, we’ll have many opportunities to experience Piedmontese cuisine, including many meals featuring… truffles (of course).
We’ll conclude this unique tour on Lake Como, another of Italy’s magical places and when we leave on October 29, you’ll probably have some truffles and wines packed in your suitcase.
