Food & Wine
The Italian food we know and love for its abundance of tastes consists of thousands of different dishes and culinary practices combined through the centuries in what today we call “Italian cuisine.”
It involves a great variety of dishes and ingredients that amount to more than 5,000 regional specialties, more than 500 traditional local cheeses, at least 130 different grappa varieties, and more than 100 artisan chocolate manufacturers.
With its 20 wine regions and more than 400 native wine varieties, Italy is the world’s largest producer of wine.
At WinkItaly, we can offer an exclusive and complete culinary and wine-tasting experience while you visit our country, ensuring that your tour of Tuscany, Piedmont, Campania, Sicily, Veneto, Lombardy, Trentino, Umbria, Marche or Puglia is an event you will never forget.
Cheers, or… Salute!
In Italy food is equivalent to culture.
Who better than an authentic Italian chef could teach you the most traditional Italian recipes while preparing a fresh-made lasagna, a local organic-made pasta with a pesto sauce, or a classic delicious tiramisu?
WinkItaly offers easy and enjoyable private cooking classes in historic locations, guaranteeing a memorable culinary experience in line with truly authentic Italian traditions.
The Tuscany, Piedmont, Umbria and Marche regions are among the best truffle-hunting areas for both varieties of truffles, black and white.
WinkItaly can organize your truffle-hunting experience with bilingual truffle-hunters who will show you how to find truffles and how to use their renowned aroma in Italian cuisine.
One Day on a Farm
WinkItaly can offer upon request a one-day experience at a farm where you can get a flavor of what a true Italian farmer’s life can be these days.
The farmer will show you rural surroundings and teach you secrets for making some authentic Italian regional products, as well as the best way to taste them in various recipes.
