Piemonte Biking Tours

Vini Rossi Favolosi

In Piemonte, the Nebbiolo grape is the foundation for superb Barbarescos and the mighty Barolo—“the king of wines and the wine of kings.” In Tuscany’s coastal Maremma region, bold blends that start with Cabernet changed the course of appellations and created legends like Sassicaia and Ornellaia. Finally, Brunello embodies the supreme expression of the Sangiovese’s lively, deep character. By travelling to one region after another, and comparing all three, we take you on the oenological odyssey of a lifetime and offer you unparalleled insider access through authentic meetings with the most interesting players in the business. No matter how much you know about wine, there’s nothing like a face-to-face encounter with royalty.

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
