Once again we urge you to come with an appetite! In the verdant north of Italy there is an abundance of fresh produce and wine on offer and we have a firm focus on bringing the tradition of taste to the table. Local osteria championing the region’s gastronomic delights are hand picked by Bon Nardella, our tour host. Try the game, fish, risotto, traditional sauces and broths. The wines from Verona’s Soave, Bardolino and Valpolicella will be wonderfully matched. Espresso? Yes.
There is a way to hold the chisel. Luthier, Benedict Stewart returns as our Guitar Building Instructor along with Mark Russell who will be available to provide additional hands-on help throughout the entire guitar building progress.
We can expect exceptional entertainment! More details will emerge as the opportunities unfold.
