You are here


Hills that stretch as far as the eye can see, charming medieval villages, imposing castles, prestigious vineyards and wine cellars connected by paths to be discovered along itineraries to be covered on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. Recognised by UNESCO in 2014, the Vineyard Landscapes of the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato are an uninterrupted system of hills famed for the production of the finest Piedmontese wines. Let's begin our journey in the Langhe in Barolo, where the town and the legendary wine are one and the same. Here, at the castle, you can visit the Enoteca Regionale del Barolo and the Museo Etnografico Enologico and, of course, sip a glass of excellent Barolo as you relax. Moving on to Barbaresco, a little village characterised by a tall red tower, at the centre of the production of the wine of the same name. Next stop is in the Monferrato district where, between Nizza Monferrato and Canelli, you can discover the specialities for which they are renowned: Barbera and Asti Spumante, respectively. This is also the home of the "Infernot", ancient cellars dug out of the rock by hand. After a visit to Valenza, famous for its gold jewellery, and the spa town of Acqui, and after tasting Novi chocolate, it's time to treat ourselves to a tasting of Gavi, a white wine made from 100% Cortese grapes in the province of Alessandria.
