Natives of New Orleans and high school sweethearts, the Meyers’ shared a long-time passion for good food. The Meyers personally take guests on wine tours, cheese-making tours and truffle hunts as well, creating an immersive experience in Tuscan cuisine and culture. The week-long package tours are all-inclusive of hotels and food, not including airfare.
