If you’re a wine enthusiast looking for an immersive and informative experience, our Barolo & Barbaresco Wine Tour with a local Winemaker will not disappoint.
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 topped with medieval castles in the wine valleys of Barolo and Barbaresco, located respectively on the western and the eastern sides of Alba.
We visit our winemaker’s home and its family-run cellar 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.
Discover the differences between Barolo and Barbaresco wine valleys
The Barolo & Barbaresco Wine Tour with a Winemaker ends in the wine district of Barbaresco on the easter side of Alba.
The Barbaresco region spreads across the towns of Treiso, Neive and Barbaresco, as well as a small part of Alba. In this area,the average elevation of the hills is lower than in the Barolo wine region, as well as the minerals laying in the soil and the microclimate that benefits of the proximity to the Tanaro river.
Enjoy the third wine tasting of the day, focusing on Barbaresco wine and for a final focus on the evolution of Nebbiolo grapes, before returning to your hotel.
