Piedmont wine and gastro tour
TOUR | 4 days 3 nights | Piedmont is a land of mountains, plenty of history and culture. True to the meaning of its name: "foot of the mountains", it is surrounded on three sides by the Alps, with the highest peaks and largest glaciers in Italy. The region is a paradise for gourmands: besides the world known complex Nebbiolo wines of Barolo and Barbaresco, Alba is home to the precious white truffle - one of the most sought after food items in the world.
We are going to meet the winemakers of some prestigeous wine estates, have dinner in top restaurants, visit the city of Alba and experience the Donkey Palio on the 2nd of October during our Piedmont wine tour.
Day 1 | Arrival at Milan or Turin Airport. Welcome to Italy! Upon arrival, your English speaking tour manager will welcome you and accompany you with private bus to the heart of the Langhe wine UNESCO region Our agriturismo, where an excellent wine is produced since four generations, is located near the charming town of Treiso. Upon arrival, we will be visiting the cellars and start our sensory journey through the wines of one of the greatest wine regions of the world. Dinner will be served at the hotel with home-made products. Overnight.
Day 2 | Today we discover the area by walking through the vineyards up to the town of Barbaresco, that gives the name to one of the best reds in Italy. We will walk on some of the most renowned vineyards and we will have the chance to stop by a small, family-owned produced to discover the story of his stunning Barbaresco. Once we reach the town, there is free time to stroll and have lunch on our own. In the afternoon we move to Neive, listed as one of the “most charming villages of Italy<. Later in the afternoon we will enjoy a sunset wine tasting at a winery. Dinner will be in La Morra, from where the view over the whole Langhe area is breathtaking.
Day 3 | This morning we head to Alba, the “city of 100 towers”, for a guided visit of the city historical centre and one of the oldest wine cellars of the Region. In the afternoon Alba hosts probably the oldest tradition in the city: the donkeys’ Palio. The donkey race, which is held with great care for the animals’ welfare, was started for one reason only: entertainment. Victories and defeats of decades ago are still remembered as though they were yesterday. The Palio is held on the first Sunday in October and is a hugely fun event, attracting many visiting tourists. The districts compete for the Palio cloth and for the procession prize. Historic scenes from medieval life are re-enacted as over a thousand characters – noblewomen, knights, soldiers, commoners and peasants – parade through the city streets to the sound of trumpet blasts and drumrolls, accompanied by banners and flags, before the excitement of the eagerly awaited Palio. Alba is also know as the “capital of taste<. This is why tonight we will enjoy here our gourmet dinner.
Day 4 | In the morning, before reaching the airport for our flight back to Hungary, we stop in Barolo to visit the Wine Museum, hosted within the ancient Falletti Castle. Lunch will be served at a near-by winery for our farewell toast. Transfer to the Airport.
