Let our tour guide take you on the most panoramic routes winding through the area of production of the famous Barolo wine, spread across eleven municipalities, where Nebbiolo grapes are cultivated. Take advantage of stunning photo opportunities over these hills which are part of the 50th UNESCO World Heritage site of Italy, because of the historical value of a unique patchwork landscape, dotted with medieval towers, castles and quaint villages. Referring to the elements otherwise silent to a hurried glance, the guide provides an in-depth presentation of the region. Continue to an off-the-beaten-track boutique winery – where quality and family traditions are valued – and step inside the cellar to taste at least four premium wines. In the end, our guide takes you to the must-see town of Barolo, to admire the outside architecture of the imposing castle and for some free time to spend in the numerous wine shops.
