Shared wine toursShared wine tours - often referred to as "semi-private" wine tours - are joinable tours that we offer six days per week for up to 8 persons. The itinerary is different for each day of the week. The price is fixed per person and the tour takes place as long as a minimum of two people sign up. This offers an economical option to those who don't mind sharing a tour with others.
We reserve the right to cancel shared tours with less than two participants. In the unlikely event of a cancellation of a shared wine tour, the participants will be notified 7 days before the tour date and will have the option to receive a full refund or reschedule to a different tour.
Advantages of a small tour groupMy tours are for groups of from 2 to 8 people and in my experience this more intimate size of group makes for a much more enjoyable and flexible tour than anything you can expect from a large tour bus, despite the obvious price difference. We are able to visit the smaller and boutique wineries where the wines are quite distinctive, and, similarly, we are able to have our lunch at small trattorias which are always more authentic than the establishments catering to the large buses.
Private wine toursThese tours are for your group only and even when they have an itinerary similar to a shared tour, they include additional activities, usually a visit to an interesting sight such as an abbey or castle, or with the possibility to stroll around a village and do a some shopping. Obviously it is much easier for us to tailor a private tour to your particular interests, and this we always do. The more you tell us beforehand about your interests, the better.
