Piedmont’s most famous wine appellations, Barolo and Barbaresco, sit on the world wine stage next to the great wines of the Northern Rhone, Cote Rotie and Hermitage, their French neighbors.
About The Tour
Barolo and Barbaresco are among the most famous appellations in the world. The wines are powerful in a way that Tuscan wines are not. Some prefer them to Tuscan wines but why chose? These monumental wines can age for decades. Piemontese wines are quintessentially artisanal. Indeed, there is a lovely Piemontese expression that states “the best compost (or fertilizer) for a vineyard are the footprints of the winemaker in his (or her) vineyard”.
Alba – Once or twice a week the air in the town of Alba is perfumed by the sweet, nutty, delicious aroma from the Nutella factory in the town. On Saturdays the old city center becomes a bustling market brimming with local fresh fruits, vegetables, cheeses, local meats and of course irresistible white truffles and other mushrooms in all shapes and sizes.
After visiting the market, many of our guests have remarked “If there is a heaven it looks like this”
