Apart from touring art cities and historic hubs, going on Italy wine tours is a great way to spend your days in Italy. The country is surrounded by countless wine regions, each with its own unique draws and attractions. From mountain markets and vineyard cycling trails, you’ll never run out of things to enjoy when exploring Italy’s wine regions. Piedmont wine tours go well above and beyond wine tasting and some guided walking through vineyard trails. When you choose Tuscany wine tours, you open yourself up to dining and wining adventures like no other.
Italy wine tours are best around major dining and wining capitals such as Parma, Bologna, and Modena. These areas are great for discovering great food and wine pairings as well as sampling some of the best restaurants and hand-picked wines in the region. The fact that the Parma-Bologna-Modena region is the birthplace of Pavarotti, Verdi, and Ferrari adds to the charm of Italy wine tours in this area, with its sprawling opera houses, historic universities, and museums.
Numerous wine trails are scattered around the country, many of which link most visited wine destinations to lesser-known wine regions. Take a wine tour Puglia for a taste of some of the best wines, south of the country or visit the vineyards, bars, and cellars of Turin, Florence, and Lake Garda for some big city winning experiences. Bardolino in Lake Garda is a worthwhile side trip, especially when visiting around the time of the region’s famed wine festival.
End of year winter festivals and wine harvests are also worth catching all over Italy. Local Christmas markets are not only great places to sample local fare, but also to sip brews and spiced wines that are famous around this time of the year. Sorrento and Amalfi Coast are also great places to get a taste of authentic Mediterranean flavors. Ischia, which is only an hour away by ferry from Sorrento is another hidden gem in the world of wining and dining in Italy. The island’s unique volcanic soils make for excellent growing grounds for premium Forastera and Biancolella grapes.
