12 Virtual Italian Food and Wine Experiences for Italy lovers.

Virtual Italian food and wine experiences

Looking for some Virtual Italian food and wine experiences? You’re in the right place.

I’m simply amazed at the amount of love & connection that can be shared online- and in this time of home quarantines & fear- it’s more important than ever to find ways to have human connections & some joy in our days.

It’s so wonderful to see cooking schools, chefs and passionate food guides across Italy finding creative ways to connect and share their passion for Italian food & wine right now- digitally!

If you dream of Italy and can’t make it anytime soon-(we’re all in the same boat) I think you’ll love this list of people to connect with and experience some Italy right at home.

Below is our growing list of chefs, food professionals & home cooks who are sharing virtual Italian food and wine experiences straight from Italy to your digital device.

New experiences are popping up daily- so I’ll be adding to this list as I get new details. Click here to see the Master List of  Virtual Italian food and wine experiences as it gets updated.

Ready for a delicious reprieve from your home quarantine & help some small businesses at the same time?
