If Food & Wine are your holiday inspiration, then Italy should be on top of your wish list Countries to visit. Gastronomy traditions in Italy differ not only from region to region but, even from town to town within 10 miles distance from each other. This is due to the many cultures that have influenced Italy all over creating such a wide variety of recipes, dishes and way of cooking which has become our traditional regional cooking as we know it today.
As for the food the same can be said for the wines that are produced in Italy when, under the Etruscan first and subsequently Greek and Roman Empire civilisation later, viticulture was introduced and then spread all over Italy. This allowed Italy to become today the largest wine producer in the world some of which are the finest a palate can taste.
So where to start? Come with us along the Via Emilia and travel along this Roman route for one of our bespoke Gourmet Food & Wine Tours, tasting the succulent Parma Ham D.O.P., the Culatello di Zibello D.O.P., a slither of Parmigiano-Reggiano with a little drop of 25 years old Balsamic Vinegar of Modena D.O.P. all washed down with a glass of delicious Lambrusco Grasparossa or Bonarda dei Colli Piacentini; you can then tuck in a traditional plate of Tortellini in Bologna or Tagliatelle with beef ragout in Romagna with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon dei Colli Bolognesi or a Sangiovese di Romagna superior D.O.C. and if this wasn’t enough then a mix grilled meat platter with grilled vegetables and roast potatoes should do the trick together with a Sangiovese di Romagna Riserva D.O.C.
