What is Enogastronomic Tourism? The word Enogastronomy is slowly being introduced into the English language and comes from the Italian word Enogastronomia (eno•gas•tron•o•mia), which is the tying together of food, wine, and culture.
I collaborate with a variety of tourism companies in Italy to create tailor-made tours based on guest preferences and the type of experience they are looking for. From winery visits, cooking classes, volcano excursions, and door-to-door driving services, I can custom-build an experience for you in collaboration with my many associates in Italy.
For all food, wine, and culture tours, we ask you to advise us prior of any allergies or dietary restrictions, or preferences you may have. We recommend dressing like an onion in layers of clothing as the temperature is frequently changing on Mount Etna at all times of the year, ranging from sunny, warm days thanks to the hot Sicilian sun and cooler nights and winter months due to the high elevation of the volcano making Etna alpine climate although it is in the center of the Mediterranean. Etna is known for its sunny days and abundant rainfall, so a rain jacket, umbrella, and close-toed shoes for walking through the rugged, volcanic terrain are suggested.
A 50% deposit will be required upon booking, and the remainder will be due 72 hours before your tour start time. Cancellations must be made 72 hours before the tour starts for a full refund. Payment can be paid via bank transfer or Venmo. Upon tour confirmation, please provide your full name, address, email, and phone number, and an invoice will be sent with the total amount due and the required deposit.
