Full description
Admire the charming landscapes of Langhe in Piedmont. Delve into its long history of vine-growing. Taste Barolo and Barbaresco, two of the great red wines of northwestern Italy. Explore the area where the “king of wines” is made. Be led by your local guide to 2 wineries. On the way, pass through colorful hills and valleys that change with the seasons. Once at the winery, the producer will show you the vineyards. Learn about the production of Barolo wine. Conclude your trip to this winery with a wine tasting session. Stop for a light lunch made with local produce from the region. Follow your guide to a second winery. Understand the difference between the two productions. After another wine tasting session, you can decide which wine you like the most. Treat yourself to chocolate and white truffle with a stop in Alba.

    Fantastic experience! Had a great time, and our tour guide Elizabeth was so good!

    Private transport and scenic drive were both great; tour guide as well was very friendly. However, for the price and time commitment, don’t feel like we really got the most by going to only 2 wineries. No “light lunch” just meat and cheese boards with tasting. Also, we never made the white truffle and chocolate stop so that was misleading / disappointing. The tour has potential with many wonderful things to see, just the company doesn’t incorporate them. As for the wineries themselves, good pick of both with informative tours and good wine.

    Good guide. Beautiful landscape Piedmont. Two vineyard visits that were very nice and rewarding. The only less good thing was a little too small lunch.
