Experience small group, multi-day tours off the beaten path. Our food, wine, and cultural excursions span the world's most interesting regions, and include an American wine host with charismatic local guides.


My wife and I had a fantastic time. The wines and tours were all excellent. The hotels were very nice as well. Most of all Sam was a great leader and our local guide Ines were the best. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone interested in wine.

The Crush Wine Naples tour was a wonderful opportunity to visit the Amalfi Coast area and the city of Naples. We were provided with some unique and interesting winery tours that might not have been possible on our own. And the bufala mozzarella farm tour was outstanding. The tour director Sam is clearly knowledgeable about wine and very down to earth and easy to talk to. The tour group was small (18) and everyone was friendly and engaging. Some had been on multiple tours with Sam and seemed like family! The native Italian tour guide Alice was really great. She provided interesting and meaningful history and cultural background to some of the areas we visited. Overall it was really an A+ trip. Looking forward to doing more with Sam.

This was our first trip with Crush Wine - we rated it a 5/5. The whole trip was well organized and stress free. The tour and city guides were excellent and enhanced the traveling experience. There were 18 people on the tour and everyone was very friendly. Went to great tourist sites and off the beaten path places we would never have been ourselves. The food, wine and hotels were great. We will definitely look forward to future tours with Crush Wine!

Sam and our Italian tour guides were excellent, especially with communication before and during the trip. All bases were covered and Q&A was available in any medium. It was an amazing and memorable trip. I highly recommend Crush Wine Experiences for any tour, especially in Europe!
