Steve Rushmore

HVS Founder

"We learned about Livio from a friend who owns one of the most upscale gourmet food stores in NYC. His recommendation was priceless. Our private tour in Piedmont was perfect in all respects: private wine tastings, hunt truffles, hands-on cooking with 2-star Michelin chef. With Livio we felt like locals."
