"If you are looking for an underdiscovered area of Italy, this is a trip for you. Great food, great wine, and a wonderful guide who makes each day a new adventure. If you are looking not to be a tourist in Italy, sign up for this trip."
- Jane K. (November 2017)
"This trip was an experience that no other person can provide. Suzanne's personal relationships with the vintners and restaurants in Piemonte cannot be duplicated. It is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity."
- Carole W. (April 2017)

Why travel with Suzanne?

Quite simply because Suzanne is a much loved and well respected ambassador of the wine families of Piemonte, and is passionate about forging connections between them and her guests.   During her 30+ trips over the past two decades, Suzanne has witnessed seismic cultural and economic changes in the region.  She has immersed herself in the familial culture and made strong bonds with many of the wine families, both world-famous and under-discovered, all of which are dedicated to preserving their heritage.  As a trusted scribe of their stories and someone dedicated to their culture, the wine families have opened their hearts and doors to her and her guests to provide a truly unique experience. 

"Was this trip worth it? We're going again next year!"
- Jim S. (June 2019)
"Not only did we get to savor the wines of some of the best wine producers in the region, but we were treated as if we were old friends. I love that we had the opportunity to talk to the winemakers over meals and really get to know them. Suzanne's extensive knowledge of the area took us to charming little restaurants off the beaten path where we were able to enjoy the unique local cuisine."
- Claudia K. (November 2018)

"This is not a 'tour'. It is an exceptional experience. Being welcomed by the winemakers, the chefs and the restauranters as friends of Suzanne's and not as a 'tour group' made all the difference."
- Linda M. (April 2017)
