Barbera wine trekking

Description

Explore the core zone of the UNESCO World Heritage hill district called Monferrato, just ouside the town of Nizza Monferrato, in the southern province of Asti. Our tour guide takes you through the hills where the main cultivation focuses on Barbera grapes which locally are aged in oak barrels, as required in order to label the wine with the name Nizza. The first stretch of our walk goes from the town center of Nizza Monferrato, which boasts the medieval town hall, up to one of the panoramic overlooks from where the tour guide can point out the surrounding hamlets and farmhouses and other peculiarities of the area. The itinerary is about six miles (9 km) long and it features a break in a cozy winery for the visit of the cellar and the tasting of at least four wines. Return to the centre of Nizza Monferrato on a different route.

 

Availability: every Sunday at 9am from March to November, with a minimum of 5 paying adults.
