Piedmont’s Langhe region is probably one of the most picture perfect wine producing regions in the world. Home to Barolo and Barbaresco, the Slow Food town of Bra, Alba (home to the white truffle fair) and top grappa and cheese producers, this corner of Italy is gourmet paradise. Barolo itself is a delightful wine hamlet, crowned with a castle and Grinzane Cavour is another village with a stunning castle where the annual truffle auction takes place. The region is beautiful year round, but autumn time is when the Langhe explodes into a symphony of colors, with undulating hills blanketed in orange, red and yellow leaves. Autumn is also the season for white truffle (black summer truffle is available in other months), and the restaurants serve rich risottos and homemade pastas with hedonistic tartufi.
This Wine Tour is designed for wine lovers staying in Turin who are looking for a one-day luxurious private chauffeured tour to boutique wine estates in the wonderful Langhe. From Turin, you will head south to stunning vineyards of the Langhe, visiting two estates today along with the castle of Grinzane Cavour, which also houses a wine museum and regional wine shop with many top Barolos, Barbarescos and Grappas on offer. If you have little time and want to experience the best of Piedmont’s wine country in one day, this excursion is a marvelous introduction to the region.
