Tuscany + Cinque Terre Extension

This small-group trip is now sold out.

You’ll be joining Sommelier Erica Archer on a small-group trip to Tuscany, Italy, April 30-May 6, 2018, visiting the region’s incredible wineries, experiencing the magnificent wines, food, architecture, art, and history that the region has to offer… and we’re adding an optional side trip to Cinque Terre May 6-9, 2018.

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.
