Barbera & Barolo Wine Tour

Monferrato and Langhe Territory

The Langhe and Monferrato are Piedmont’s most distinct wine areas. They are cousins, each famous for world-class wine and amazing cuisine, but each a little different in their own ways. The Langhe is the peak of refinement with gentle hills that are neatly planted with vines and is home to the “king and queen” of Italian wine: Barolo and Barbaresco. It continues to showcase the noble heritage of the past with picturesque hilltop villages and ancient castles. Monferrato is the wilder cousin. The woods grow a little thicker and the hills are a little steeper. It is the perfect home for Barbera, the fruity red wine that is a local favourite. Both areas were recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Vineyard Landscapes in 2014.
