Watch out for our the IWINETC Media bus! Wine Pleasures has hand-selected a group of highly talented wine media, journalists, and travel consultants from around the world, from the United States and Canada to the United Kingdom, France and Germany. This team of professionals will tour the Campania wine region from 2 – 5 Feb and provide objective and detailed editorials of the beautiful region and its many treasures, providing both written and photographc illustrations of their tours.
Wine Pleasures has partnered with MTV Campania to put together a 4-day tour around the Campania region, which is densely packed with food and wine tastings at various wineries such as the Terre del Principe, Mustilli, Terredora, and Mastroberardino wineries, as well as the Cantina Feudi di San Gregorio. The trip concludes with tastings at the Azienda Villa Matilde, and Grotta del Sol wineries, and a farewell dinner of wine and pizza at Gambero Rosso! The Media Staff will enjoy their accommodations at the Aquapetra Resort & Spa in Telese Terme, L’Una Hotel il Molino in Benevento, and the Romeo Hotel in Naples.
A thank you to the hotels, wineries, and venues for their generosity, and a special thanks to MTV Campania, for sharing their extensive knowledge of the Campania region and for preparing and sponsoring an exciting and volumous itinerary that is certainly to give our Media team plenty to write about! We look forward to sharing daily reviews of the trip, please connect with us on Twitter and Facebook, and follow tweets on the #iwinetc to read these exciting reviews and learn what Campania has to offer!
