Taste of Life Tours is a boutique tour company specialising in delivering unique travel experiences throughout the region of Piedmont in Northern Italy. All tours are focused on showcasing the very best of the food and wine in this region. For a gastronomic trip of a lifetime, allow Taste of Life Tours to design a specific custom tour for your group’s requirements and budget or perhaps take one of our 6 day guided food and wine tours. If you’re a little short on time then join us for a day tour through the rolling hills of the Barolo wine zone.
On all tours you can expect to be part of a small group (max 10 person), experience wine tastings at the very best producers, dining at some of the region’s most exclusive restaurants as well as those local eateries that are well and truly off the beaten track. With some highly unique experiences such as swirling Barolo with some of the area’s most famous producers, truffle hunts for the world famous Alba white truffle or guided tours though a regional food market. Or perhaps your style is more long degustations lunches, tours through historic chocolate houses or visits to artesian cheese producers. Whatever your fancy, you can be assured that Taste of Life Tours will have it covered on this gastronomic tour of a lifetime
My name is Robert Gherardi, and I will be your Australian/Italian Tour Director. My hometown is the famous Margaret River wine region of Western Australia. I am a university trained winemaker as well as a passionate foodie and traveller. I have worked for the past 10 years for some of Australia and Italy’s most famous wine producers living between both countries with my wife Kellie and our two daughters Lilly and Daniella. I now produce my own wine in Australia in the vintage period (Mr Barval Fine Wines)and return yearly to Italy.
Together with my team of local born and raised local guides, Samantha and Sara, you can be ensured of an authentic unique experience. Let me or one of the Taste of Life team show you the delights of this amazing gastronomic heartland of Italy.
