PIEMONTE 

& VAL D’AOSTA, ITALY

  

 SEPTEMBER 6 - 14, 2024

Calling all wine lovers! Travel with Chef Angela Cicala and Sommelier Lynn Finkbiner in autumn, 2024. Northwestern Italy is home to world class vineyards, truffles, castles, and some of the best views of the Italian Alps. Grab a glass and get cozy.

 

Spend 4 nights in the vine covered hills of Piemonte at Villa D'Amelia,  then we move closer to the Alps for 4 nights in Val d’Aosta, at the majestic Bellevue Hotel & Spa. All rooms have a balcony with a view over an Alpine field or the snow covered Gran Paradiso in the distance. Taste cheese and wine fireside, or relax at the spa.

 

Excursions around the area include medieval castles and fortresses, wineries, and local artisans’ workshops tucked away high in the mountain villages. Being so close to the French and Swiss borders, expect the local cuisine to blur the lines of France, Switzerland and Italy.  Think polenta, rich cheeses, juniper and mountain herbs, warm raclette, prosciutto, and pastas with a foreign flare.
