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.
Follow us to the Wild Heart of Italy: we are taking a small group tour to Paolo’s home region of Ciociaria in September 2018 and May 2019. This 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.
There is JUST ONE PLACE (for a couple or a fabulous single) left for our Wild Heart of Italy food and wine adventure 9-16 September 2018 – see our page above.
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! Tickets are ON SALE NOW, take a look at our dedicated Vino Express page for more details. But be quick!
