A whole day among vineyards, wine-tasting, great food and fascinating places.


The Langhe are a historic region of Piedmont, positioned between 450 and 800 meters above sea level, between the provinces of Cuneo and Asti.

This land is famous all around the world, not only for its wealth of traditions and typical local products, but also for its rolling landscapes which have been immortalized and celebrated by the words of writers such as Pavese and Fenoglio.

Moreover, this is the homeland of Barolo, of the White Truffle of Alba and of the Tonda Gentile hazelnut, just to name a few of the many delicacies of this land.

In 2014 the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato areas became the 50th Italian site to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The very first for viticulture-designate agricultural landscapes.
