We used Taste of Life Tours for our trip to Barolo wine country. From the start when I reached out and Sara responded I knew she would be a great fit for us. There were four of us traveling and staying in Turin and wanted to lean about the region and specifically Barolo wines. Sara recommended we take the train to Bra (which we did) and she would pick us up. We opted for a private tour which was well worth the money. Taste of Life Tours also made it quick, easy and secure to book online. We had a memorable day wine Sara learning about Barolo “ the king of wines and the wine of kings”. We opted to visit one winery in the morning and wanted to visit a local castle in the afternoon. Our lunch at Osteria la Torre in Sara’s hometown was the most memorable meal we had in the two weeks we were in Italy. The chef Marco created a smorgasbord of his favorite dishes and personally served them to us. The food was excellent but having Marco create a menu for us was an honor and did I mention the wine. Our day was full of regional facts and plenty of laughs, Sara is informative and overall fun to be around. She also discussed life in the Piedmont region, providing several history lessons of the area and her love of wine. All in all the perfect day with the perfect tour guide. Sara Thank You for being part of our 40th Wedding Anniversary trip to Italy, Shawn, Brenda, Michael and I think you are WICKED AWESOME!!!

A total immersion of the all the senses and the Piedmontes life. If you are looking for an amazing gastronomic/wine experience and the underground story of how the locals made this come to be,then you must spend time with Rob who will find you many delights in places you don't even know to look. A foodies fantasy.

We had a day to remember with Sara. At her suggestion, we visited two wineries, one mainly known for its Barolo and the other for Barbaresco. In both places we were met with personable, highly informative reps of the establishments. The wines were excellent and so was the conversation. We started off with a wander through up to a medieval castle in a charming village and, In between wineries, we had a delightful lunch on a terrace overlooking vineyards. As the result of conversation along the way, Sara also set up for us a unique experience for the following day, a scent "tasting" at a artisanal home scent maker in Cherasco. Sara herself is full of knowledge and stories about the region, but we also felt we got to know her, and she us, on a personal level as well. This was an experience we will never forget!

We spent a great day touring wineries with Sara. She was an awesome guide and as our tour was private, we were able to make wishes concerning the visited wineries and in addition we had a fabulous lunch as well as some time to stroll in the nearby villages. Sara also give us perfect tips for dinner places and even booked us a table and taxi. Thus we warmly recommend the wine tour with Sara and will definitely come back!!

Spent 2 days in Piedmonte with 5 couples and Sara. Every detail of the 2 days including the winery's, the lunches, the truffle hunt and the villages visited were great. Sara also made suggestions and helped me with plans outside of the tour. She was fantastic and a day or two spent with Sara will be worthwhile and a great time for those with discerning taste.
