You need to see an alpine cow parade! Join us in Switzerland in September 2023 for the annual parade of flower-bedecked, bell-wearing cows, coming down the mountain after a summer of grazing high in the Alps. In addition to experiencing this special once-in-a-lifetime event, we’ll also take a deep dive into learning why alpine cheeses, like Gruyére AOP, are so special, and how they can be enjoyed with friends and family.  We’ll complete our trip by travelling into Northern Italy to learn about and taste cheeses from the valleys formed by the mountains. We’ll close the week in the Italian region of Piedmonte, with a focus on wine and truffles.
