CURATORS OF CHARMING FOOD + WINE TRAVEL EXPERIENCES
”My destination is no longer a place, but a new way of seeing” [Marcel Proust]
We specialise in packaged travel experiences in the food and wine regions of Orange in regional New South Wales, Australia, and Ciociaria in Central Italy that we call home - both of which are food and wine lovers’ dream destinations. Our carefully curated and hosted food and wine tours are aimed at being authentic and local immersive experiences, where you’ll get to see where artisanal produce and products are made - and meet the proud locals making them.
We are hosting the incredibly popular Vino Express for the 2018 Orange Wine Festival in October again this year – and for the first time it will be held over TWO weekends!

Follow us to the Wild Heart of Italy: our small group tour to Paolo’s home region of Ciociaria in September 2018 is now fully booked, however we are taking reservations for May and September 2019. Ciociaria is an incredible ‘hidden’ food and wine region (just 1 hour south from Rome), and we will be serving up a real taste of authentic regional Italy for our guests. Ciociaria was a renowned foodie destination in ancient Roman times and a favoured summer retreat for several ancient Roman Emperors. With its deep Etruscan roots, Ciociaria is currently undergoing an amazing revival of its ethnic cultural traditions through food, wine and song.
We are now fully booked for our September 2018 Wild Heart of Italy food and wine adventure. Enquiries now open for May and September 2019.
