Join us on for our fun filled gastronomic day tour of the beautiful Aosta Valley in Italy – aptly named the ‘Taste of the Aosta Valley’.
Collecting you from your accommodation, we will drive to Italy via the Mont Blanc tunnel. In the morning you, you will have the chance to discover two local wineries, where you will get to taste some outstanding locally produced wine. Much of the wine that you will taste is made purely from rarely known local indigenous Aosta Valley grapes, providing you with a great opportunity to discover some new and exciting styles and flavours of wine, unique to the Aosta Valley. You will also have the opportunity to taste some locally produced cured meats as well as some fresh local cheese from the area.
After the wine tasting is complete, we will then transport you to the historical town of Aosta where you will have the chance to enjoy an amazing degustation lunch of 5 or 7 courses. The chef creates a delicious locally inspired menu, based on using regional products only, with each course being accompanied by a local wine.
After lunch, we have some moments to wonder the beautiful pedestrian streets of the old town of Aosta before heading back up into the mountains to visit a local distillery. Here, you will have the opportunity to taste and purchase some great quality Genepi or one of two different types of gins, that are all distilled in nearby Saint Bernard mountains.
Marmotte Mountain Adventure offers day trips for guests to enjoy the ‘Taste of the Aosta Valley’ and tours can be booked throughout the year for groups of 4 pax or more.
