FRANCE & ITALY

Up in the Air Life proudly presents our first Culinary Experience Trip.  We are traveling to the world’s top two food and wine destinations for the culinary experience of a lifetime.  Are you about that CHAMPAGNE LIFE? Join us as we travel to the region of our favorite libation, Champagne, France. We will pop bottles at various champagne houses, have a Black Tie four-course food and champagne paired dinner in the cellars of Moet & Chandon, and learn the history of the region’s historic and grandest champagne houses. After France, we jet to Bologna, to meet an Italian Wine Ambassador who will assist us in exploring Italy’s culinary delights – including vineyards, a cooking class, and the opportunity to dine at the #1 restaurant in the world.
