    Italy Travel Planner Services

    Ciao, I’m Valerie Quintanilla!

    I fell in love with Piedmont 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.

    I love working with travelers looking for a 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!

    Barolo Wine Tours:

    • 2 winery visits (maximum of 3) in southwestern Piedmont wine region. Includes: Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero, and the Monferrato. 
    • Additional tasting opportunities in the villages during the day.
    • 2-course traditional  lunch with local wine.
    • Multiple days include outlying areas, educational opportunities, food experiences, and more.
