“The discovery of a wine is of greater moment than the discovery of a constellation. The universe is too full of stars”
CUSTOMIZED BAROLO & BARBARESCO WINE TOURS
Barolo & Barbaresco Wine Tours
Our wine tours are focused on the Piedmont region, that proudly boasts the highest percentage of DOC and DOCG than any other region in Italy, with some of the most strictly controlled designations or classified wines like Barolo and Barbaresco wines. With over a thousand growers and 500 producers in just the Barolo & Barbaresco area, this can be considered a wine pedigree area.
173 Different Barolo & Barbaresco Crus
Just like in Burgundy, the “crus”, the villages, and the terroir are all extremely influential to the style of wine you get. Nebbiolo is a noble grape, becoming complex wines like Barbaresco and Barolo. Like its local people, they may seem reserved at first and will take time to open up, but once you understand them, you will be loyal for a lifetime!
