Our Enogastronomy tour was born out of love…a love of place and a yearning to share with you the unique taste of Calabria.

The tour itinerary is designed to showcase the contrasting landscape of Calabria, it also includes spending quality time with local people who have an intimate working relationship with their land, giving you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the unique tastes and flavours of an unspoiled and abundant land.

Enogastronomy is another way of saying “food, wine and place”.

We know that traveling, cooking and sharing food and wine is an enjoyable way of bringing people together. We also love working together coherantly, competantly and compatably to bring you a very intimate and rare travel experience.
