A wine cellar and a cheese farm in the UNESCO hill district
On this four-hour tour we drive around the Southern Province of Asti and the Monferrato hills that have been recently listed as a UNESCO site for the historical value and the beauty of the landscape, taking photo-ops along the way and talking about the unique soil composition that, still today, reveals sea-shells and other fossils.
Transport is not included, 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.
First stop is a cheese farm, a real corner of peace, where you will see goats, horses, rabbits, peacocks and many other farm animals. The tasting will include four products of the day, like the local "toma", a fresh creamy cheese, a unique blue cheese made with goat milk and yoghurt.
Next visit a winery focused on the typical red "Nizza", a Barbera wine aged in oak barrels. Walk through the cellars and enjoy a tasting of at least four wines.
