There are many different ways to visit and enjoy this corner in North-Western Italy. We suggest you let yourself be ravished by a secondary road, by the sing of an “osteria”, by the pungent smell of fermenting must that oozes out of a wine cave, by the profile of a medieval castle suddenly appearing on the hilly skyline, and let the vineyards with their amazing kaleidoscope of colours seduce you. Wander through the aromas and the emotions of a territory that can be not only visited but also “tasted”: wineries, farms, hilltop villages and castles, restaurants, wine-shops and museums offer a wide range of authentic gastronomic and cultural pleasures, that share a common passion for quality. 


The Corkscrew Museum in Barolo can give you advice about local wineries to visit, in order to discover the history and the peculiarities of the great wines produced from the vineyards of Barolo, Barbaresco and the Roero.


Discover the region by walking on the trails that will take you through the most famous Crus of Barolo and Barbaresco.
While walking through the vineyards, you will feel the pulse of life that transforms the tiny buds of springtime into the ripe grapes of autumn and finally… into a great wine.


For individuals or groups, we suggest you contact licensed tourist guides, who will be able to accompany you through the most interesting and fascinating places with professionalism and the passion of those who live here day by day.


Let this sea of hills cradle you. Wake up all your senses so that you will not miss a single emotion. Immersed in the scents of nature, listen to the quiet pace of life through the rows of vines: it is the heart of the Langhe hidden behind wine cellars and vineyards.
Follow its beat. You will be driven through winding roads guarded by ancient castles, that will fade through the colours of the vines or will come out in the streets of a medieval hamlet or in the barnyard of a lonely farmstead. Cross its threshold and you will meet the King of this land: Barolo, with its court of Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Arneis and Moscato.


Real heaven for the palate, each corner of the Langhe can boast excellent products, protected and guaranteed by strict laws that preserve their quality, their authenticity and their life. But it is first of all the passion for simple everyday genuine food that transforms the traditional recipes into precious gems for food and conviviality lovers.


Safe from prying eyes, just like all precious things, the White Truffle seems to challenge us and hide beneath a land that is generous, but can be hard and whimsical with its sudden and treacherous ravines. There it will rest until the autumn rite starts and expert searchers with their well trained dogs will bring this precious mushroom from its silent cradle to the limelight of international auctions. Bucolic and mundane, shy and glamorous, archaic and refined, the charm of this treasure of the Langhe probably lies in its double faced soul.
The perfect match of the White Truffle with the great wines of the Langhe and their simple yet rich dishes will reveal unique culinary pleasures that you will not find anywhere else.


Another treasure of this generous land. The high quality of this hazelnut comes mainly from the environment in which it is cultivated. The fresh and clean air of the Langhe, together with the pruning techniques and the careful selection during the harvest, provide a unique and sweet fruit that is the perfect ingredient for traditional desserts such as the hazelnut cake or the “Torrone d’Alba”, which can be perfectly accompanied by a golden glass of Moscato d’Asti.


Barolo: the King of Wines and the Wine of the Kings!
It is from the Barolo vineyard that this wine has taken its name and its present characteristics, that Barolo that has become a wine of worldwide appreciation and fame. It was precisely Juliette Colbert Falletti, the last Marquise of Barolo, who started to produce local Nebbiolo as a completely dry wine at the end of the 19th century. The result was appreciated to such an extent that the obtained wine was given the name of the Marquise’s residence and land: Barolo. An extraordinary wine destined to become “ambassador” of the Savoy’s Piedmont at all the courts of Europe. This sumptuous wine is linked with a great Piedmontese gastronomic tradition and it has always been synonym of elegance all over the world. If it has become the “wine of kings”, appreciated by kings such as Carlo Alberto and Vittorio Emanuele II of the Savoy family, who bought lands and vineyards in the Langhe area, it has become the “king of wines” because its fame and appreciation have become overwhelming not only in the Langhe, but throughout the world.
