Food and Wine Travel
Eat Well. Drink Fine Wine. Travel Often.
Until a few years ago, food & wine travel, otherwise known as “Culinary Travel”, was not very common. Rather, it seemed to be something that you only saw on television as you followed correspondents who ate and drank their way through local cultures around the globe. But as we turn the corner into 2019, culinary travel is now one of the fastest growing travel trends in the industry.
At Luxury Concierge Travel, we have found that Culinary Travels and custom vacation planning for the epicurious, has become almost a daily experience! The trend towards up close, participatory culinary travel has become one of the fastest-growing in the travel industry today!
Wine and food has risen to the top of the deciding factors of travelers choosing their destination for their vacations. The culinary travel experience includes everything from visiting food and wine festivals, visiting local farmers markets, sampling artisan products or beer and cheese tasting! But almost always, these delicious adventures include hands-on experience cooking alongside top chefs.
Recently, Luxury Concierge Travel, customized a culinary vacation for a couple in South Florida. They knew they wanted Italy, amazing food, cultural experiences, incredible wine, history and culture all wrapped into one unique Italian vacation. Jodie Wert, Design Specialist at Luxury Concierge Travel, went to work to create an ultimate experience for her discerning clients.
The result was an 8 night experience that fused cuisine and culture! Visiting Tuscany, Cinque Terre, they lived like the locals in the Ligurian hills tasting local wines and olive oils and learned to make pasta the traditional way in Chianti. When they were not chasing delicious, they took time to take in the sites and history of Italy. Hiking along the coastal paths of Cinque Terre, biking atop the walls of Lucca and learning about the life and works of Michelangelo were just a few of the highlights.
