I visited this event when it was touring to Copenhagen. Although none of the top name Barolo producers were present, the exhibition boasted plenty of really high quality wine. All of the exhibitors were warm and welcoming, enthusiastically describing and discussing their wines. There is...More

If France has Pomerol, Italy has two: Barolo and Montalcino. With so many self-promoting competitions and ratings, one can easily get lost and fooled with medals, Parker ratings, etc. When you buy wine from Barolo (Pomerol or Montalcino), you don't need ratings. Even the wine...More

Fantastic country, beautiful sights and wines! A real treasure of this country. Barolo, Nebiolo, Barbera d'Asti and Barbera d'Alba and many, many others... You have to try this!

I had the fortune of living close to this area many years and got to explore it, even with my meager Italian, on many many weekend outings. The food in this area is just amazing (feel free to check my restaurant reviews), the best season...More

This part of Italy could be called a secret pearl in Italy,. Extra ordinary landscape, great food and wine in typical italian atmosphere, no mass tourism (also not the accomodation for that, hopes it stays so) and beautiful cities in the area like Torino, Alba,...More

We visited this beautiful part of Italy in May 2012. It is heaven for food and wine lovers. Fantastic walking opportunities if you over indulge. Really hope to go back one day soon.

Perdonami Gianluca di dissentire dalla tua recensione.. che a te non possano piacere le Langhe lo posso accettare ma che tu dica che sono sopravvalutate è un'eresia. Il lavoro che centinaia di famiglie hanno fatto per dare un'entità al territorio carico di monumenti (Alba, Pollenzo, Cherasco, i castelli di Serralunga, Barolo e Grinzane Cavour). Non ci saranno parchi acquatici e mai li vorremo o il Louvre (infatti ce n'è uno solo al mondo) ma l'Alba sotterranea ti terrà impegnata più di 2 ore. Ti sei mai interessato della ricerca del tartufo? Oppure addentrati trai sentieri nei vigneti e noccioleti con innumerevoli opportunità di visita alle cattedrali del vino ne sono pochi esempi...e cosa dire dei trekking tra le vigne o magari tra il bosco dei pensieri a Fontanafredda? Se cerchi lo standard della città turistica non la cercare quì... non a caso da oltre un anno è area Patrimonio dell'Unesco.. Non voglio fare polemica ma forse la tua visita è stata fugace e non hai raccolto lo spirito di un territorio che ha fatto sistema per raccontare la sua tradizione. Buon viaggio!
