From Clients to Friends

I have been taking clients around Italy for over a decade, and I am still loving every minute of it! Every time I take clients to taste from the barrels, visit the Duomo terrace in silence high above the crowds, or taste their first truffle dish at Piazza Duomo and I see their faces light up, that is my real pay-off. Which is why I created Filippo Bartolotta’s Signature Travel programs with my company Le Baccanti Tours. The first we are launching is an incredible Tuscan itinerary to satisfy any wine lover’s dream. With me by your side, I will take your wine knowledge to the next level while having arguably a little too much fun in the meantime.
