You will discover some of the most famous Italian wines, visiting two different wine regions: Monferrato and Langhe, both belonging to the Unesco World Heritage. Specifically, you will taste Barolo, called “the king of red wines” and Spumante, the Italian version of French champagne.
Start the day crossing the green soft sloping hills of Monferrato: the enchanting colours, flavours and savours are emotions that you are going to feel again during the wine-tastings. This will take place at first in the worldwide famous “subterranean cathedrals”, more than 15 km. of galleries dug into tufa, about 40 m.deep under the ground, where millions of bottles undergo fermentation. In this extraordinary enviroment, you will enjoy a superb wine-tasting including different kinds of Spumante.
The lunch will take place at a family-run wine farmer situated on a panoramic location among the hills. Gourmet dishes freshly made at home will be accompanied by different wines presented by the house enologist. After lunch you’ll move to Langhe, and unique cloloured landscape. This only is the place in the world where Barolo wine can be produced. A visit to a selected local winery will represent the peak of the trip.
