Valtellina Wine Tour

Wonderful Winter Wine Tours in Valtellina & Switzerland

EXPLORE ALL OUR WINE TOURS IN ITALY

Overview of Valtellina Wine Tour

The Northern Italian region of Valtellina is spectacular at any time of the year. Still, winter is an extra special time to visit as apart from the fabulous food and wine, there are some excellent spas and thermal springs, and the Alps are particularly picturesque when covered in snow. On this specially designed short winter break, you will see some of Italy’s loveliest unspoiled scenery and visit boutique wine estates making intensely perfumed red wines, “Sforzato” and Valtellina DOCG. These wines are produced at high altitude on cascading terraces clinging to steep hillsides. You will indulge in plenty of “mountain cuisine” like creamy cheeses, Bresaola, buckwheat pasta -called Pizzoccheri della Valtellina- and polenta with melted cheese, all washed down with these powerful Chiavennasca based wines (the local version of Nebbiolo, used to make Barolo).

Your base for this tour will be at a historic spa hotel in the charming ski resort of Bormio, located at the gateway to the breathtaking Stelvio Pass. Bormio has been famous since Etruscan and later Ancient Roman times for its natural thermal springs, and you will enjoy rejuvenating spa treatments at your Belle Époque style hotel. Over the next few days, you will visit the beautiful towns of St Moritz in Switzerland and Bellagio in Lake Como, both great shopping destinations and extremely picturesque. Other highlights of this winter tour include an exhilarating Bernina Express train ride with spectacular views and a magical horse-drawn sleigh ride through the snow. If you love food and wine and are looking for a short winter break in Italy that offers fantastic scenery and sightseeing, then this is the tour for you.
