Barbera and Sparkling wine

Description

Tour of 2 wineries: Barbera d’Asti winery and underground cellar tour in Canelli (sparkling wine producer)

 

 

  • Self-guided (approx. 4 hours);
  • You can add the driver in the checkout process;
  • We book two wineries for you and we provide the address of each place;
  • You will be greeted by knowledgeable English-speaking hosts and, sometimes, by the owner in person.

 

Barbera and sparkling wine producers are located in the southern province of Asti between Nizza Monferrato and Canelli, where the Barbera grapes grow at their best and where Italian sparkling wine is produced.

 

The first stop is scheduled in the town centre of Canelli where a few local families began the production of sparkling wine at the end of the XIX century by following the traditional champagne technique. We gain access to the perfectly preserved underground cellars, dug in the compact limestone, whose fascinating architecture and their historical value, resulted in being part of the 50th UNESCO World Heritage site of Italy. Partake in a tasting of 3 sparkling wines including Italian spumante.

 

Later, visit a boutique winery where a local family ages in oak the Barbera d’Asti D.O.C.G. A second tasting of at least 4 wines is paired with salami and cheese.
