Foodie Buzz: Operator Offers Wine-focused Tours of Italy

Good news for foodies and oenophiles headed to Italy: Select Italy is offering a set of food and wine services in three historical locations throughout the country.

The wine tasting tours begin with a throwback to the earliest days of ancient Italy. The food and wine tour at Paestum will be a favorite for history buffs, especially for those who follow architecture and archaeology but also for foodies that will have the opportunity to try Mozzarella Di Bufala, exclusive to the region and this tour.

The Tuscan wine tasting tour looks at medieval Italy. Customers will head to Montecarlo, a well-preserved medieval village, in order to see how Italian life was conducted behind castle walls. Guests can also sample some very unique wines that reflect area’s culture. For example, La Fattoria Michi blends French and Italian wines for a unique fusion.

The Irpinia tour is a celebration of Italy’s Renaissance with white wines that are produced in Irpinia, Fiano di Avellino and Falanghina. Situated 25 miles east of Naples and resting in the Apennine mountains, Irpinia is home to some of the oldest wineries in Italy.
