Langhe and Roero
Torino Caselle: 80 km
The Langhe are the place for good wine and gastronomic excellence. The wineries producing the world famous Barbaresco and Barolo wines welcome you for visits and tastings. The soil in this area is ideal not only for the prestigious white truffle but also for other truffle varieties.
Top quality hazelnuts from Piedmont are the perfect combination with chocolate.
This international Association which defends real food produced with respect for the environment, the local territory and traditions, came to life in the hills of Roero, in the city of Bra, a place of excellence in food, wine and culture.
Wine Tasting directly in the heart of the area of production; show cooking to learn the secrets of fine Italian cuisine from experienced and talented hands; tasting of truffles and other traditional, local products.
But also unforgettable adventures like veteran car tours over the hills and bike rides through vineyards or riding around on one of the symbols of Italy in the 1960s, the Vespa scooter.
The tiny capital of the Langhe area is Alba, a small town which saw the start of the history of that great brand-name Ferrero: a modest confectioner’s shop which, in war-time, turned to using hazelnuts - one of the resources of the territory - and invented the giandujot, Ferrero has now become the confectionery company renowned throughout the world for Nutella.
