The Barolo vs Barbaresco day tour begins in the town of Alba where your driver greets you on a luxury 7-seats van.
First, enjoy a scenic ride to the Langhe hills, on panoramic wine routes winding through quaint hamlets and medieval castles of the Piedmont wine region.
Visit a boutique winery completely surrounded by vineyards where Nebbiolo and other local grape varietals are grown. The cellar tour steps inside the fermentation and aging rooms and it ends with a generous wine tasting including the comparison of different types and vintages of Barolo wine, aged in large oak barrels (traditional style).
Before the next stop, take a stroll in one of the villages of the area wandering around wine shops and picturesque photo opportunities.
The Barolo vs Barbaresco day tour includes a light lunch (3 to 4 courses) paired with wines of Piedmont, set in the second Barolo cellar of the day, with views over the vineyards of Piedmont.
The last part of the day is set in the wine district of Barbaresco, located on the eastern side of Alba, where micro climate and sun exposure are different than in the area of Barolo.
Enjoy the third wine tasting of the day, focusing on Barbaresco wine aged in small French and toasted barrels (modernist style), paired with cheese and salami.
