Farmer's brunch with wines and hiking in the countryside


We will visit a local family-run Barbaresco winery located on a panoramic spot overlooking the UNESCO World Heritage Langhe hills. After a tour of the cellar, indulge in a typical farmer's brunch with salami, cheese, breadsticks and other delicacies paired with at least four wines including Barbaresco and Barolo. Later hike all the way to the town of Barbaresco, at the foot of the medieval tower. Enjoy some free time in town and continue crossing the natural hill-amphitheater where the most precious Barbaresco grapes are cultivated. Most of the hike is on paved road, sneakers or trekking shoes are recommended. Average lengths of the hike is 3 to 4 miles but it can be tailored shorter or longer according to your skills. Transportation to/from Barbaresco is not included: if you need it tell me how many people and I will send you a customized tour with transport cost.
