An instructive, self tailored and pleasant experience.

My wife, our two grown up daughters and myself, visited the Enoteca Regionale del Barolo in October 2018. The Enoteca is owned by the Barolo commune, which makes it non commercial. As a result, they cannot recommend wines, but walk you through your choice of tastings. Non drinkers will also enjoy the visit for there is a lot of information being offered by the guides. Since it bears relevance to the appreciation of the quality of the information supplied, I should say that being a WSET level 3 Award in Wines, I am familiar with this kind of experiences. The guides do know their job, the more you know, the deeper the level of the information they will supply to you, their work is undoubtedly superb, very well crafted. They have 32 Barolo wines to be tasted, coming from all the communes in the region which produce these wines. People interested in wines will have a most enriching tasting experience, for the wines are classified by areas, the vines being grown in soils of different geological origin, despite being geographically so close, which lead to an unbelievable diversity. Barolo wines are expensive, and it will be difficult to taste such a variety of them, without a visit of this kind. If you don’t drink wine, there is a lot of information in offer, which makes the experience most interesting, from the diversity of soils, to slopes, sun exposure, climate, viticulture and vinification related issues, etc. I truly recommend a visit, it will be a pleasant, instructive and well crafted experience.

It is located in a great building with ample space an beautiful setting for tasting a great variety of local wines. However the selection of wines available is of second quality ones and none top ones

Impersonal experience, underwhelming
Aug. 2018
Basically you can skip this one.

I think it is such a pity that the Barolo region doesn’t use this enoteca as an opportunity to create ambassadors for their great wine! At least that is my feeling about my visit.

The enoteca is located in a large hall under the castle. You get a plastic card and a glass at the counter and with that card you can tap wines from a machine with bottles of Barolo wine connected to it. The selection of wines that can be tasted is relatively small.
There is very little information available and the only employee is handing out cards and glasses and handling the payments for people who buy some wine. So no advice, no education.
Overall a very impersonal and boring experience.

123 wines to taste
Jun. 2018 • Couples
For a modest fee you can taste 123 new vintage wines. A great way to explore a diverse range of wines and select a few for a proper tasting

Large Barolo offering
May 2018 • Couples
Use the enomatic system to offer 20 different tastings at reasonable prices. Organised by region so interesting approach plus includes an older vintage section. Tried wines we had not seen elsewhere. Bit off the beaten track but worth finding. Not much stock in May but new vintages are due.

Great Barolo Selection in One Location
Oct. 2017 • Family
I’m not an expert in Barolo wines, but I found Enoteca Regionale de Baroloto be a great starting point to explore a wide variety of the wines from this famous DOCG, without having to visit each winery.

Good tasting range
Apr. 2017 • Couples
A great way to compare and contrast a big set of Barolos from different areas. Be careful you don't end up spending too much on all of them though. I enjoyed the range but I felt that the setting wasn't that conducive for properly appreciating the wines; it was a little too production line like. Definitely a good place to start in Barolo though.

Fascinating
Oct. 2016 • Couples
Seeing a working vineyard is amazing and the wine tasting was great. It had a little museum showing the history of the region and then we were taken down into the wine cellars and seeing all the barrels and then the collection of wines from over 100 years ago.
