Food and wine holidays in Italy

Luxury food and wine holidays in Italy, tailor-made for individuals and small groups, with a focus of fine-dining, fine-wine, slow food and cookery

Italian Expressions offers you a range of food and wine holidays in Italy. There are opportunities to appreciate authentic, regional food, to see how artisan food products are made, to learn to cook in Italy and to savour the very best Italian wines. Certain foodie things always spring to mind when you think of Italy– truffles, olive oils, Parma ham, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. The world’s most expensive cooking ingredient – the delicate truffle – grows in abundance in Italy, so why not enjoy a truffle hunting holiday in Piemonte. And, for the many variations of olive oil – from the rich and peppery to the smooth and silky – a visit to one of Italy’s distinctive olive oil producing regions will show you how to really taste the difference.
All holidays are tailor-made according to your tastes and requirements. We also offer cookery holidays for 2-6 people and wine tours for small groups of up to 14 people, accompanied by a wine expert.

Food appreciation in Italy

Our food appreciation holidays in Italy offer you an exploration of Italian food: slow food in Piemonte, truffle-hunting, olive oil tasting, artisan pasta and bread-making and mozzarella in Puglia are just some examples of food-themed holidays to Italy.

Cookery in Italy

Italy's world-famous cuisine is created using local and regional traditions and skills that have been passed down lovingly through the ages. Our cookery holidays are based in authentic, regional hotels, for example in Tuscany, Sicily and Umbria where either as individuals or as part of very small groups of up to 6, you have hands-on lessons to learn new skills and regional dishes.

Wine appreciation in Italy

The culture of wine-producing and wine-appreciation is an intrinsic part of the Italian way of life and landscape. Expressions Holidays offers you an insight into wine appreciation in Italy not just through our hotel-based holidays in wine-producing regions of Italy such as Tuscany, Piemonte, Puglia and Sicily but also through tailor-made wine appreciation holidays for individuals and through our wine tours for small groups. Our wine tours for small groups of up to 14 people accompanied by a wine and food expert and take place in Piemonte, Tuscany and Sicily, for 4 to 7 nights’ duration.
