Wine & Food Adventure – 1

Overview

On this trip, we literally indulge in the fine Aegean cuisine of Western Turkey, which is huge with wild greens, seafood, vegetables, and wine. We taste the street food, fine-dine, enjoy cooking classes while visiting the wineries of the Urla Wine Route and Ephesus area, farmer’s markets, explore some of the world’s top archaeological and historic sites. The trip deliberately balances the rustic, traditional food, and top of the line restaurants.

Our Food & Wine trips are both designed with Slow Travel principles. We spend as low as 40-45 miles a day average on transportation, which gives us enough time to absorb the experiences and digest our food.
