The Great Crus of Barolo

2-day wine tour Exclusive tour for real wine lovers and connoisseurs to discover the unique variety of styles given by the different local terroirs. Barolo is made entirely from the same grape, nebbiolo, and can be produced in 11 villages only, the 5 most famous being La Morra, Barolo, Monforte, Serralunga and Castiglione Falletto. You will be surprised by the substantial differences given to the wine by the different hills, vineyard exposure and soil components.

Monferrato Wine Tour

Private day-trip with local tour guide in the southern Monferrato to discover the typical wines of the area like Asti Spumante, Moscato d’Asti and Barbera d’Asti. Tour Highlights: Visit a Barbera d’Asti producer. Traditionally, Barbera was for everyday drinking, but about thirty years ago Giacomo Bologna with his “Bricco dell’Uccellone” gave Barbera wine a chance to step out of Nebbiolo’s shadow. Barbera makes dark wines that are low in tannins, thus French oak lends wine tannins of its own, giving this newer style of Barbera the balanced structure it needs to support the added richness. Wine-tasting will follow the visit. Visit the medieval city of Asti or other village nearby. Transfer to Canelli, the homeland of Asti Spumante and Moscato d’Asti. Visit one of the so-called “underground cathedrals, i.e. spumante refining cellars of famous historic wineries like Gancia, Contratto, Bosca, etc.). Wine-tasting will follow the visit.
