Sips, Sites & Bites has set April 7, 2018 for its first tour of the season in Sicily, Italy. Founded by lifelong friends Gondy Somma and Jo LoGiurato, Sips, Sites & Bites is a boutique tour company specializing in small group tours for wine and food lovers. This tour offers a complete cultural immersion. \u201cLimiting the size of the group will allow everyone to have a personalized experience,\u201d Somma said. \u201cUnlike groups led by larger tour companies, our group will have greater access to smaller venues, assuring us more time with winemakers and chefs, and an opportunity to explore the entire island.\u201d Co-founder LoGiurato said the focus will be \u201con exemplary wineries, fabulous food destinations and hands-on cooking classes, peppered with stops to UNESCO World Heritage historical sites. We will unlock the secrets of Sicilian culture as we eat, drink and cook our way through Sicily!\u201d There is a $500 savings for reservations by Jan. 15.
