Epicurean Delights in the Lands of Great Wines & Alba White Truffles
This wine and gourmet tour designed by Italia Dolce Vita will lead you through the beautiful hills of Langhe, Roero, and Monferrato, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Piemonte. The unique scenery, dotted with castles and manors steeped in rich history, is surrounded by vineyards creating one of the most picturesque and stunning regions of Italy. Here, the Slow Food Movement began, and traditions are well preserved, as this authentic territory values quiet life, flavorful cuisine, and world renowned wines.
The month of October is the most exciting and blissful time to enjoy Piemonte: Nebbiolo grape harvest begins, cellars are in full swing, landscapes of rich autumn colors mesmerize, and the annual International White Truffle Festival takes place in Alba.
Learn all about the world of truffles through a truffle hunt with the “trifulao” (truffle hunter and his dog), a truffle Sensorial Analysis, a guided tour through the Alba festival market. Relishing in gourmet dinners and lunches!
Enjoy VIP private guided cellar tours and tastings at boutique producers of Barolo, Barbaresco, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Arneis … In Asti see the UNESCO cellars known as “underground cathedrals” in Asti for a tasting of their “metodo classico” sparkling wine.
Visit and stroll some of Italy’s most beautiful and charming hamlets and villages like Alba, Nieve, Grinzane, and Barbaresco.
Join me and together let’s explore one of the most facinating regions of Italy.
