Panoramic tour of the Barolo area and wine tasting in a cellar.


Start this half-day excursion (four hours) with a panoramic drive around the area of production of the famous Barolo wine. This tour doesn't include transport and I will join your vehicle. If you need a private driver and car, tell me the number of people and the pick up location so I will send you a customized tour including transport costs.
Enjoy the views over the so called "Langhe" hills become a UNESCO site for the beauty and for the historical value of the landscape. Learn about the unique soil composition and the geographical position as I will show you the hill conformation and the typical farmhouses. Stop for a photo opportunity along the way and take a stroll in the hamlet of Serralunga d'Alba dominated by the majestic medieval fortress (entrance not included). We will then visit a small family-run winery producing Barolo, where a tasting of at least four different wines is included. Finally get to the town of Barolo for some souvenir shopping and return to the starting point of the tour

A Recent Review of this tour

Marco was an excellent guide. As we visited different towns and historical sites, he shared his knowledge of the area's culture and history and provided much more than simply a wine tour. However I would also mention, the wine aspect of our afternoon was terrific. We visited a family owned winery that has been making wine for well over 100 years. The experience touring the winery and in the tasting room was definitely a highlight. We only had 1/2 a day, but it was a great value.
