Tuscany and Piedmont
‘The Heart of Italian Wine’
Join renowned Melbourne wine importer, Michael Trembath, on this incredible tour. Only 20 places available.
Michael has been importing some of Italy’s greatest wines since 1985, the last 25 years as co-owner and director of Trembath & Taylor. Apart from living in Italy for two and a half years in the early ‘90’s, Michael has made numerous return trips - more than 50 - passionately working with the country’s leading winemakers. During this time, he has developed a deep interest in the regional foods of Italy, as well as the local culture.
All this will be revealed on this tour!
‘The Heart of Italian Wine’ covers the two truly great regions of Italian wine - Tuscany and Piedmont. In so doing, we are exposed primarily to Italy’s two iconic grape varieties - Sangiovese and Nebbiolo - through in-depth tasting visits at Michael’s wineries, as well as lunches and dinners at both wineries and restaurants specializing in regional cuisine.
But ‘The Heart of Italian Wine’ is much, much more. We visit Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca, Florence, Genova and Torino, in each case soaking up the history and learning why each city/region is unique, whilst taking in the local specialties that make up the gastronomic paradise that is Italy.
