Description

This is a wine adventure and master class through northern Italy unlike any other, in the company of wine-amkers Al & Susan Fulchino. 

An experience not only for wine lovers, but for those who love health and wellness, at once educational yet guaranteed to satisfy all of your senses from the second you step foot into the stunning Relais San Maurizio, considered one of the finest hotels and spas in Europe, and immersed in vineyards on every side!  This is a wine lovers paradise and every destination we visit will have you wondering whether it can possibly get any better.

From start to finish this amazing, well-thought-out experience brims with the incredible knowledge and passion of Al, Susan and Wine Tours Italia, as we invite wine lovers amateur and professional to participate in this incredible journey through the amazing vineyards of the Piedmont region.

If we haven't got you excited enough, consider this:

The relais San Maurizio is an exclusive estate in the area of Piedmont, you can read about here:

http://www.relaissanmaurizio.it/

This estate is not open to the general public, though can be rented out privately and was recently rented out by major celebrities including Eros Ramazzoti, a major Italian pop icon, Jay-Z and Beyonce , but to name a few - who have rented the entire facility out for their friends and families a few times, where some of the best wines and foods in all of Europe were served to their guests over the course of the week!  

The first three days of your trip are here and you will never experience another place like this in all the world, so to say it only gets better from here for the rest of the trip is an under-statement!
