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.
