Wine & Food Experience in Northern Italy: Piedmont ROBERTSON WINE TOURS for Mitu & Kim Friday 22nd April 2016 - Tuesday 26th April 2016



FOCUS


​​The pursuit of a meaningful travel for Robertson Wine Tours means getting involved in the local culture of a specific region or a country as quickly as you can. Robertson Wine Tours will offer you a completely unique tour service. The ethos is simple: to give you a once in a lifetime trip with wines and food that you will never forget. Our guides have proven themselves with years of experience, wonderful personalities and of course in depth knowledge of their subjects. Most of all, we want to enable you to have an amazing and unforgettable tour by sharing with you the insights and things we most love: food, wines and great company in world-class settings. We will use different tasting techniques, which all contribute to fulfil your wine tourism experience. But tasting, enjoying and discussing the wines and food is of course the main event. To summarize, the main objective of this tour is for you to taste very interesting wines (not just the most expensive or the famous) and gain a great understanding of the places you are going to visit in the time you have available.


Why Robertson Wine Tours?


The reason for choosing us is very simple: we are wine lovers and want to share with you our insights and the things we love most: outstanding wines with excellent food, great company and stunning landscapes. Our main objective is for you to gain a great understanding of Italy and its people while tasting amazing wines and superb cuisine in the time you have available. We have 13 years of experience and excellence. Italy is a country you can return to often, so let us try to show it to you from a new perspective: through its foods and wines. Many of our guests have been to other great wine regions in the world. Italy sometimes surprises our guests with what appears to be backward technology and time tested winemaking techniques, which seem to be in big contradiction to all the New World's winemaking bells and whistles. It is fascinating to speak to winemakers about their perspective on the wines of Italy, the wine industry and global markets.

Testimonial – Piedmont-wine-food-experience – 4-nights

Hi Tim and Cristian — We really loved it.  In fact, we would do that same trip again (visiting a different set of wineries). We especially liked Sandro — he was really perfect for us.

Thanks for everything!
Best,

Hotel: Da Felicin, Monforte d’Alba

This property is owned and managed by the outstanding and historical restaurant of the same name. Nino, the owner, and his father before him are proud custodians of Da Felicin. The garden and the restaurant are located in the lower part of Monforte and just 200 meters away are the superb apartments with a wonderful pool and great vineyard views. The breakfast that Nino’s kitchen prepares is delicious and there are plenty of delightful communal areas. This is a great stay in roomy apartments with incredible views over Barolo. As well as liking these apartments very much, we hope you will also have the chance to eat in the restaurant while you are here. Reservations through us highly recommended.

Sandro


Born in the city of Turin, Sandro started his career as a trainer in natural parks, until he decided to make a life-changing experience in local restaurants and wine shops of New York. He organized workshops and events with food and wine producers from Piedmont and he was attracted by the genuine passion that he saw in the local wine makers and their strong ties with their own land and its traditions. Realizing how food and wine are the best way to bring people of different cultures together and aware that the best way of learning about a culture is to live it every day in first person, he decided to relocate in the Langhe Wine Region, ancient heart of Piedmont. He started organizing wine tours/tastings, hands-on cooking and winemaking experiences for food and wine professionals, tour operators, foodies and kitchen dummies. This also led him to rediscover his own native town, where the aristocratic tradition of its old cafes is melting with the colourful kaleidoscope of flavours brought by the recent migrations from all over the world. Sandro is a professional tourist guide, sommelier and ONAV (National Organization of Wine Tasters) member.
