A fine food journey across Italy…

Imagine a tour where you don’t simply enjoy the smells, sights and sounds from the outside; but one that takes you inside to the very heart of Italian life, food and culture.

Gourmet Italia is a unique fine dining experience taking small groups of 6-10 travellers on an intimate journey through Italy’s north to sample food and wine at its source.

Spend a day as a family guest in a country villa where the freshest of produce comes from the land, to the kitchen to the table.

From Our Last Tour Around Italy

Join the chef who transforms this produce into the finest of traditional recipes and learn authentic gourmet preparation from the master; or sit back and enjoy the views and a wine as your feast is prepared, the choice is yours…

Visit a boutique winery then enjoy a gourmet feast where our sommelier will take you through the perfect wines to accentuate every course of the meal. Feast at an olive grove where families have pressed the finest olive oil for generations.

This is the gourmet trip of a lifetime with every detail of your journey—from accommodation, to transfers and side tours—all organised as personally and authentically as your foods and wines. This is the real Italy.

Your Host

A native of Rome, Pino D’Aguanno has lived in Australia for more than 40 years but his heart has always been in Italy.

Since 1997 he has been taking groups on cycling tours of Italy— tours that have stood out from the crowd thanks to Pino’s local knowledge, contacts and his personal touch.

It’s this approach that he has brought to Gourmet Italia Tours to create a unique experience where you won’t feel as though you are a guest of the family; but one where you truly become part of the family.
