Truffles from the ground plus truffles in chocolate shells How can anyone choose just one favourite wine? Our CDV Family just keeps on growing

"CDV is the BOMB !"

This was my sixth trip with CDV and it didn't disappoint. Obviously. I like their trips :) They are right when they say it is about "family"....I was disappointed not to see my old friends !

"Best mother/daughter trip ever!"

The cooking was a "hoot"! Delicious food. The side trips were a perfect way to stay connected to the country we were traveling in - Off the grid is perfect. Fun and accommodating guide and drivers.

"Bucket list adventure "

A unique experience with my daughter that I’ve looked forward to for a long time. Wonderful people, food and wine! Great hosts…lots of fun!

"Maybe the best trip EVER"

We fell in love with northern Portugal and its lovely people. I was completely blown away by the natural beauty and the love we felt when spending time with our CDV family.

"Friends, Family, Food"

Words simply cannot express what a wonderful time I experienced in Portugal with CDV! I came with my friends, made new friends and we were all treated like family as we cooked and ate together!

"Highly recommend"

If you are looking for an authentic cooking experience with the chance to meet locals to experience the real Italy, this is the tour for you.

"Lovely villa, vistas and vino!"

Villa Cornarea was just lovely and the vistas from the villa deck were spectacular. And the vino....some of the best we've ever tasted!
