An Alpine Riding & Italian Gourmet Escape To Remember

Turn up the challenge, breathe in the fresh Alpine air and engulf your tastebuds with us as we take in the best locally grown Italian produce Bright and the surrounding area has to offer on this 4 day boutique guided tour.

Sensational mountain climbs, picturesque valleys and stunning vistas await as we take on Happy Valley, Mount Buffalo, Tawonga Gap and more, while savouring beautiful Italian style, regional food all weekend. We’ll cook together, enjoy being treated by our own in-house chef and relax into a long lunch in true Italian style at the region’s most revered winery – where local chefs and winemakers will host us to a truly exclusive experience.

Nestled at the foot of Mt Buffalo National Park, our luxury Private Estate accommodation will provide the perfect comfort and Tuscan inspired setting for us to relax, share conversation and be inspired by the mountain views and expansive saltwater pool, which is sure to invigorate the senses post ride.

Join us with your riding or non riding partner for what will be an Italian inspired, Australian riding and gourmet experience to remember.

Food & Wine

Enjoy with us Italian inspired recipes and wines as we bring a slice of Italy home for us all to enjoy. The Alpine Valley enjoys an Italian inspired history, with delicious local produce in abundance. From aperitivo with accompanying home made antipasto specialties to cooking pasta together from scratch, and a night celebrating the flavours of a Tuscan grigliata on charcoal, the senses will be alive with the tastes and smells of Italy. We will take you on a food safari that takes in all the very best the Alpine Valley has to offer from simple organic produce finding its way into dishes prepared by our in-house chef to an exquisite long Italian lunch at our good friends’ family run winery. This will be a food and wine experience to treasure.
