Culinary Interest Groups
For traveling wine clubs and culinary groups, there is absolutely no comparison to a food and wine-filled adventure through Italy, the home of handcrafted wines and palate-pleasing traditional Italian cuisine.
From Tuscany to Piedmont, to Veneto there are so many regions of Italy that cater to the wine enthusiast. Some of the most well-known wineries in the world call these regions home, and the drink they create is nothing short of magnificent. Guests can choose to customize their itinerary to include hands-on activities such as touring historic, rustic wine cellars and learning the art of Italian wine-making. Imagine hand-picking grapes on a sweeping Italian vineyard while the Fall breeze gently blows. Talk about a memory to cherish! For those looking for a five-star experience, wineries also offer informative tastings of some of the most enchanting wines in the world, paired with the tastiest regional appetizers to perfectly accompany each glass.
Foodies will delight in experiencing the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy, which is a must-see for those wanting to try true, traditional Italian food. Immerse your group into the rich tradition of ancient Italian pasta-making in Bologna. Italian artisans still hand-make tortellini and ravioli in the ways of ancient traditions that can only be learned by passing them down from generation to generation. Or make a stop in Modena, home of the highest quality balsamic vinegar in the world, and one of only two locations in the world capable of making true balsamic (the other one being the nearby town of Reggio Emilia). Tour the factories and learn the step-by-step process of making the vinegar, followed by tastings that show your group how best to pair it with certain foods. Even take in Parma, home of fresh cured prosciutto and delectable Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

For history buffs and art enthusiasts, a group trip to Naples would offer a wealth of once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Your group can visit Uffizi, a world-class museum housing Boticelli’s Venus and other notable Renaissance masterpieces. Other museums include Loggia dei Lanzi, an open-air style museum that houses incredible sculptures.
