What a great day! Giovanni was a fantastic guide. He chose some amazing independent cellars for us to visit, and along with the owners of each cellar, we tasted a wide-range of grape varieties and wine expressions. His knowledge of the area and the winemaking process are unrivalled, showing us the whole areas of Barbaresco and Barolo from several viewpoints. Would highly recommend the tour to anyone interested in wine!

Vineyards of Barolo & Barbaresco with an expert Winemaker
The Barolo & Barbaresco Wine Tour with a Winemaker begins in the town of Alba where you will be greeted on a luxury 8-seat van.
First, enjoy a scenic ride on the Langhe hills, on panoramic wine routes winding through quaint hamlets and medieval castles in the wine region of Alba.
Visit our winemaker’s home and its family-run cellars overlooking the hills of Piedmont. Enjoy a tasting of at least four premium wines among the highest appellations of the region.
Next, the winemaker takes you to the Barolo wine region to visit a renowned winery with award-winning wines. Step inside the aging room and partake in a generous wine tasting including the comparison of different types and vintages of Barolo wine, aged in oak.
Get insight from our local winemaker as you stroll around one of the villages of the Langhe Hills and take a break for lunch on your own. You can grab a quick bite in one of the traditional trattoria suggested by the winemaker (25-30€ for a couple of courses) or wander around at your own pace.
The Barolo & Barbaresco Wine Tour with a Winemaker ends in the wine district of Barbaresco, located on the eastern side of Alba, where microclimate and sun exposure are different than in the area of Barolo.
