    Italy Travel Planning Services

    Ciao, I’m Valerie Quintanilla!

    I fell in love with the Piedmont wine region on a wine holiday in 2011. I moved in 2013 and the rest is history! My marketing and event planning background helped my site and business take on a life of its own developing custom Barolo wine country experiences, unique travel programs, and more. For your Piedmont wine tours, you’ll have a local sommelier Barolo wine tour guide and / or a culinary expert. 

    I love working with travelers looking to deep dive into area culture and wine – in Barolo and beyond. Let me develop the perfect Barolo wine tour program for you – long short, big small, for your needs here, and in other parts of Italy. My guides and partners are always well-vetted and top quality in terms of knowledge, personality, and of course fun!

    And, we can continue the fun with Italy travel planning services all over the boot! From north to south, wine to food to culture, I’ll make sure your themes and interests stay front and center in your Italy travel program!
