La Botte Piccola is a Tour Operator specialized in wine and food routes in Italy.
We will take you to discover a gourmand country with guides that are out of the ordinary. From the chef to the writer, from the historian to the archeologist.
We will take you to visit natural wine producers, to enjoy your meals at Michelin-starred restaurants, local inns full of charm and tradition, in “trattorie” that propose the “Italian fast food”. And, again, excellent fine shops where you will be able to find real rarities, fresh food local markets, long tradition farms. Our name tells it all, “La Botte Piccola” (the small cask). In Italian we say that “nella botte piccola c’è il vino buono”, which means small things come in small packages; the literary translation is as follows: in the small cask you get the good wine. Well, this is also the representation of our philosophy: the small tour operator proposes high quality tours for very small groups.
In the cask the maturation of the wine takes place, just the same way the ideas for the tour get shape slowly and with great care.
Always flexible La Botte Piccola welcomes your requests, your ideas and your proposals; in order to customize your tailor-made tour upon your wishes.
Food and wine will be the centre of our proposals, but you will also be getting offers over special and original events, cultural and artistic happenings, underground cinema festivals, concerts, painting events, visits to major monuments just as to palaces that normally are closed to the public…in sum many interesting surprises…

Transport will be organized in the most comfortable way. La Botte Piccola will take care of your transportation, and the means of transport will vary from the mini van to the Rolls Royce. You will be enjoying your itinerary in a carefree way. We pay a great care in the choice of your accommodation, always taking place in premises of great charme: very few bedrooms, unique position, high standard services. As if you were hosted at a friend’s home. From private villas to hotel compounds, from villas situated inside properties of natural wine producers to inns lost in the olive groves. Lunches and dinners will be moments of great joy both for palate and sight. From the restaurant that has obtained honours and international awards such as the Michelin Star, to the most simple and traditional inns or “trattorie” that propose the local specialities. What you have tasted will remain saved in your memory, until the next trip, just when you will be undergoing new culinary adventures.
