From our own “hidden” villa, you will be privy to hand selected vineyards and restaurants that will provide an inside taste of Italian culture. Your enogastronomic experience will be planned by professional sommeliers and chefs. Stomp grapes at a winery, make your own pasta or search for truffles along the Italian countryside – your immersion in the local culture will provide an experience that will enhance your senses and deepen your love for… everything.
Villa Vino & Fare
Discover Local Flavor
Nestled in the heart of Italy, our Villa is perfectly located to stage a Pilgrimage for the finest food, wine and scenery Italy has to offer.
Join the truffle hunter and their dogs on a truffle hunting adventure through the woods. Experience how to cook and enjoy truffles the right way and learn how the dogs are trained to find these precious little gems.
VIP Winery Visits
We know people…people who own wineries, so we can extend a VIP invite to look at at the inner workings of some of the most distinct wineries in central Italy, or simply plan your own custom wine tasting day.
Meals “the Old Way”
“Cucina povera” or peasant cooking is a phrase used to describe the traditional dishes and simple locally sourced ingredients that make up the meals of the region. Our hand selected chefs and restaurants will serve up the perfect fare to take you back to a simpler time. Relax with a glass of wine while the chefs prepare your meal in the comfort of the villa, or join the chefs in their professional kitchen for a hands on one of a kind cooking class.
Italy would not be what it is today without its world renowned gastronomic legacy. Forget the large bus tours and the overfilled touristy cooking classes and instead embark on one of our many routes through Central Italy encompasses everything you would expect Italy to be; wine tasting, art, gorgeous scenery (natural and manmade) and gourmet dining experiences in charming villages where the bus loads of people can’t get to. These experiences can include VIP private vineyard visits, truffle hunting, customized cooking classes, olive oil visits and tastings, as well as dining on authentic Italian cuisine that you will find nowhere else.
