Wine tours around Alba
Wine tours of Piedmont can take place in the surroundings of the town of Alba, on the Langhe and Roero hills.
Here, the indigenous Nebbiolo grape gives origin to several wines, including the renowned Barolo and Barbaresco. A wine tasting in Barolo usually includes other local wines like Dolcetto, Barbera d’Alba or the white Arneis.
Wine tastings near Asti
On the eastern side of Piedmont, we recommend visiting Asti wine region and the less touristy Monferrato hills. Barbera d’Asti wine is aged in oak and surprises wine lovers who are looking for a full-bodied wine.
Nonetheless, Asti wine region is well known for the sweet Moscato wine, Asti Spumante and for local varietals such as Grignolino and Ruchè, which are worth a wine tasting.
