Practical travel tips

Of course, you can create our own tour for yourself and fellow-travelers by making arrangements with particular wineries for a private tour.

The better option by far is to take go with a group on a scheduled tour which are usually fun, educational and more comprehensive than booking an individual tour yourself.

Winery tour options are as varied as the Italian landscape, but most travelers opt for Italy's "wine basket" that includes the Chianti, Montalcino and Montepulciano regions of Tuscany, or the Valle d-Aosta, Lombardy, Liguria and Piedmont wine regions in the northwest.

Or both!

The more comprehensive tours typically include hotels, airfare and transfers, followed by a welcome reception that includes a special wine tasting night overlooking incredible views of the vineyard or countryside.

Also check out if your tour offers related walking tours of nearby scenic villages and stops at local restaurants. These often include multi-course meals accompanied by wines for each course picked by the professional sommelier on staff.
