ALBA WHITE TRUFFLE AND WINE

The “Langa”, cradle of wine tourism, is host to the production area of the now famous Barolo wine, obtained from the Nebbiolo grape variety, and many other prized wines such as our own Verduno Pelaverga: this particularity creates an unmistakable panorama where the vineyards become an intrinsic natural element in the landscape.

So much so that in 2014 they were declared  as the “World Heritage of Langa-Roero and Monferrato Wine Landscapes” by UNESCO.

Another protagonist is the Alba White Truffle; invisible, undetectable, living hidden in the shade of lime, oak, poplar, willow and hazelnut trees.
The truffle hunt is reserved for the “Truffle hunters” accompanied by their precious dogs: by tradition they search by night, in the autumn, seeking out the prized tuber.

TRADITIONAL CUISINE AND FOOD & WINE ROUTES

You can find all the traditional flavours of the territory on the tables of many restaurants and local Trattoria that propose traditional dishes in combination with the great wines of the Langa region; endless products; cheeses, salami, fruit and vegetables, desserts etc… are now well known as brands of quality.
Food and Wine lovers will find their moments of pleasure in this area.
The “Wine route”; paths that can be travelled by foot, on horseback or on a mountain bike, flow between the vineyard hills in the Lower Langa.
Crossing the hills embroidered by vineyards, woods and hazelnuts is a unique emotional experience as well as being a pretext to discover new and suggestive glimpses of the landscape.

CASTLES

The top of many Langa hills are dominated by the bulk of a medieval castle, indicating a robust feudal civilisation.
Their fascination is increased by them being an essential component in the landscape; at least that is what’s perceived from the panorama of some of the villages, for example Barolo, Grinzane Cavour (UNESCO site), Castiglione Falletto, Serralunga d’Alba, Roddi etc.
