About us





Professionality of our enogastronomic tours in Piedmont is guaranteed by our certificates, experience and recognitions:

“My name is Anna Geitchenko, I was born and raised in Russia, Crimea, the ex-soviet wine paradise due to the favorable climate and geographical position of the peninsula. In 2007 I have graduated in foreign languages and the theory of communication from the Minsk State Linguistic University in Belarus.

At the end of 2007 I have transferred to Turin, Italy, where I am actually living. In the meantime, step by step, I have prepared a solid basis in order to make my dream come true: work in the sphere of wine, food, and communication. From 2012 till now I have been upgrading my knowledge & skills:
 
- Recently I have been certified by the Italian Association of Sommelier (AIS), Piedmont division: 2 years of studies and practice in the science of wine tasting and service and in wine and food pairing;
 
- HACCP certificate (hazard analysis and critical control points). Certificate issued by Scanavino& Partners Consulenze S.R.L – Opn Esaarco;
 
- Training in Territorial Marketing and Local Communities Development. Certificate issued by Management Academy S.R.L;
 
- Training in Public Speaking. Certificate issued by Coaching Lab; Training in Strategic and Efficient Communication. Certificate issued by COACHING LAB;                                                                                                                                 

I will be happy to share with you the experience gained during my living in Piedmont, during my work and visits of the most important International Wine and Food Fairs and Events. You will find out the secrets of this precious land of the noblest grape in the world, Nebbiolo. You will step on the land of the World Heritage of Unesco and see with your eyes the first capital of Italy, Turin. The places that we will see together are not “commercial points of interest” but the genuine Piedmont treasures.

Thank you and looking forward to seeing you soon! ”


PIEDMONT – the land of temptations:

Piedmont is a region in Italy's northwest and borders Switzerland and France.

Turin is the first capital of Italy. Piedmont is a royal land of Savoy dynasty that has left to this territory the priceless and timeless elegance and traditions.

Tasting a DOCG or DOC (controlled and guaranteed origin denomination) certified wine from the zone of Langhe, Roero or Monferrato results in discovery and the explosion of emotions. The broad variety of 34 certified Piedmont wines includes Barolo, Barbaresco, and Barbera - some of the most highly-respected wines in the world that you can find only in the menus of the finest restaurants abroad.
Undeniable dishes and ancient local specialties of Piedmont are the testimonials of the cuisine traditions handed down through the centuries with undiminished care in the selection of raw materials. Piedmont “fassona” bred of beef, “brasato al Barolo” a pot roast stewed in local red wine Barolo, “Agnolotti del plin” handmade pasta stuffed with roasted meat, “Battuta di Fassone al Tartufo” special raw meat with truffles and many many other delicacies will astonish you… Cheese and truffles, chocolate and ice cream deserve a separate article !!!!
