How it works

  • You can add the driver in the checkout process;
  • If you prefer to drive your own car, we provide the address of each place;
  • You will be greeted by knowledgeable English-speaking hosts and, sometimes, by the owner in person.

 

A full-day tour ideal to compare the two most exclusive wines of Piedmont, Barolo and Barbaresco, throughout an itinerary on the hills around Alba which includes a casual three courses lunch in a traditional restaurant.

 

Drive on the most panoramic wine routes within the area of production of Barolo wine, part of the 50th UNESCO World Heritage site of Italy, and take advantage of stunning photo opportunities over vineyards, medieval towers and quaint villages.

 

Late morning, visit a first off-the-beaten track winery where Barolo wine is aged and enjoy a wine tasting of four premium wines including, at least, one Barolo.

 

For lunch relax in a casual “osteria” to savor a traditional starter, a choice of local “tajarin“ noodles or small stuffed ravioliplin – and a dessert. Depending on availability, lunch could be set in the first winery, pairing traditional food with the wine tasting.

 

Free time to explore one of the hilltop villages of the Barolo area and shopping among souvenirs and wine-shops.

 

In the afternoon, drive East of Alba where the Langhe hills get shaped like natural amphitheatres, originating a unique microclimate and exposure which makes the cultivation of Nebbiolo grapes ideal for Barbaresco wine. The second winery tour in a family-run cellar is followed by a tasting of four premium wines of which at least two are Barbaresco, paired with breadsticks and cheese. Return to Alba.
