October 12-20, 2017, Chicago sommelier Rob Lehner will lead you through a casual discovery of wine, food, culture and fun in Italy. For 9 days you’ll taste some of the world’s greatest wines, sample traditional foods, hunt for truffles, discover authentic towns and villages, explore Milan, Franciacorta, Lake Como, and the Piedmont wine region! There is nothing pretentious about this trip, Rob Lehner is low key and anxious to guide you through the wine tasting, discovering your favorites based on your palate instead of wine ratings or rankings.
Northern Italy is a stunning destination in any season, but truffle season is a feast for the senses. In this tour, you’ll discover Piedmont’s hidden treasure, the rare white truffle representing the ultimate in culinary delights. The tour is planned to coincide with the International Alba White Truffle Fair and the harvest of the local Nebbiolo, Moscato Bianco and Barbera grapes, used in the world renowned Barolo, Barbaresco, Asti Spumante and Barbera d’Asti wines of the area.
