Turin (Torino)

Dégustation at Chocolatier Guido Gobino & Lunch at the original Eataly

Accommodation in mountain Hamlet and dinner with wines from the makers of the famous cheese, Castelmangno d’alpeggio

Wine tasting & lunch with one of Barolo’s most renowned producers, Luciano Sandrone

Walking part of the Sentiero trail from Monforte d’Alba to Barolo

Tastings at cantinas: Produttori di Barbaresco & Marchesi di Gresy



It was an amazing trip that travelled through the traditional face of Barolo and also the modern side of the ‘old world’. Visiting the star winemakers as well as discovering the hidden gems for sure will fulfil your palates.

There were memorable sightseeing activities from Turin to Castelmangno, while so much fun was also had enjoying the local homemade cuisines with the passionate wine lovers there.

A taste of romance in the wineries with Eddie. Satisfaction guaranteed.


The inaugural TFW tour to South Africa exceeded my expectations, so there was no way I was going to miss this tour! We ate and drank our way through Barolo, and got to rub shoulders with the best winemakers in the world, including the oh-so-humble and charming Chiara Boschis, one of the original ‘Barolo Boys’, who, in the middle of harvest, guided us through a tasting of her incredible Cannubi wines (my favourites!)

But it wasn’t only wine, wine, wine on this tour. The highlight for me was our stay at the Valle Grana, where one of the rarest cheeses, Castelmangno d’alpeggio, is still being made by hand, and where we did an incredible morning hike.
