one full day in Langhe - the land of plenty
Piedmont is a region of northwest Italy that remains relatively unknown, despite a rich and important history. It played a key role in the Napoleonic wars and later in the country's unification, which saw Turin become Italy's first capital city.
Taste the best of Italy's Piedmont region on this route through Langhe and Roero, enjoying its barolo and barbaresco wines.
Great wines are made all over the region, but the key area, just an hour's drive from Turin, is the Langhe and Roero, separated by the winding Tanaro river. The Langhe's rolling vine-clad hills produce barolo and barbaresco, two of the world's greatest red wines.
