Marcello B.

Alba, Cuneo, Italy

I was born in Alba, in the heart of the Langhe, and here I live since ever.

Spent my childhood hiking and biking these hills, as a student from Monday to Friday and as a 'little farmer' in the weekends, in my grandfather's Estate: picking hazelnuts in the Summer, harvesting Moscato, Barbera and Nebbiolo in the Fall, sharing with the family my wonderful Grandmother's soup - vegetables with a spoon of Dolcetto in it - in the winter (about Dolcetto, I still do!)
Passion for Alba and my Langhe grew up in years: so many flavors, in every season, a tremendous amount of Roman and medieval remains, an all-over-the-world well-known wine tradition, excellent 'cuisine', a scenographic landscape (the 50th Italian UNESCO heritage site!), medieval towers and castles and much more!
I finally spent my knowledge and my passion in the perfect job, becoming Piedmont certified guide in 2009, and since then I worked as a freelance for tour operators and guests from all over the world.
That's why I'm ready to customize your perfect tour, don't hesitate to ask me!
Many spoons of Dolcetto have been poured in all these years, but my goal hasn't changed: share with you 'local spots', discovering familiar farmers and cellars, let my guests experience the fascination of the place, let them feel the Langhe from 'inside'.
Because these hills are silence, beauty and knowledge. Come and see!

A Recent Review of this guide

We just spent a day with him touring around Barbaresco and Barolo areas. He is AWESOME!!! My husband I are celebrating our 7th year Anniversay; we wanted to do local touring with wine tasting, and he made our trip productive yet relaxing. He is friendly, knowledgeable, fun and flexible. Thank you Marcello. We'll certainly visit back...maybe with our parents next year ;)
