Wine trips to Puglia

Get behind the scenes of our Italian Collection

Join Nico & Natalia for a unique, fun and relaxing trip to Salento, southern Puglia. Visit their family vineyard, where the grapes to make our Italian Collection grow, and meet Enzo, Nico’s Dad, a 4th generation viticulturist.

Then explore the fantastic Cantine Paololeo, where Nico’s best friend – also called Nico! – processes our grapes and produces our Italian wine range, together with his own award-winning wines. Previously Tour Manager of this winery, it was here that Natalia created her first Wine Tours, so who better to have as your guide on this trip!

You can fully relax and enjoy your wine samples as we’ll drive you around the area; stay in a lovely hotel in the heart of Lecce, known as “The Capital of Baroque” and “The Florence of the South“; taste delicious Puglian food in restaurants chosen especially by Nico – nothing touristy, only the places that locals really love! -, and discover other unique places and highlights of Puglia, always with Nico & Natalia as your exclusive hosts.

Thoroughly enjoyed experiencing Puglia through the eyes of the locals. Visiting places, tasting delicious wines and exquisite food that most UK visitors to Puglia miss out on.

I would challenge anybody to find a more passionate, engaging, knowledgable, experienced, and authentic professional wine couple than Nico and Natalia. Together they are the consumate wine expert and maker with bags of global wine experience and knowledge. Stanlake Park, the people of Berkshire and the English wine industry are extremely fortunate to have them. They were the perfect Puglia wine tour guides providing deep insights to our journey and experience of the superb wine and foods of Southern Italy. Nico’s father Enzo and his friend Giuseppe are both wine growing/making hero’s and it was a privilege to see and taste their work.

I had the MOST amazing time in Puglia. The tour was perfect, Natalia and Nico were fabulous hosts. The hotel we stayed in was unbelievable, as was the town of Lecce. Everything on the itinerary was just so memorable, and the group were lovely. Cannot wait for another trip in another place...

This was a packed tour of places you would never do by yourself. For me being alongside Nico, and his love for his country, and learning from Natalia how to smell and taste the wine was inspirational. The memory of this holiday will last a lifetime.

A unique and delicious way to explore the wine, food and beauty of Puglia! We saw and experienced so much more than if we’d travelled independently. You can definitely tell this trip was designed by people that know and truly love the area (and the food and wine it produces!) This was a perfect trip for anyone curious about southern Italy.
