White Arneis and red Roero wine, a tiny paradise of hills and vineyards.


Roero Territory

Roero is a small wine area in the hills of central Piedmont that is particularly known for refreshing Arneis white wine as well as, bold, fragrant reds made from the region’s signature grape: Nebbiolo. Roero is the gateway to Piedmont’s famed wine and cuisine; dense IGT hazelnut groves grow in the flatlands, green forests rise up on the hills, and the area’s famed ochre-yellow stone are a unique terroir in their own right. Immerse yourself in the peaceful beauty of Roero and discover the region’s most renowned producers of Arneis wine.

  • Day 1: Morning

    Private Guided Winery Tour at Cascina Chicco

    Cascina Chicco has been making wines in Roero for three generations, since founder Ernesto Faccenda planted vineyards of Nebbiolo and Barbera in the 1950s.

    They expanded the production by selecting the areas that best express the unique characteristics of native grape varieties, and now their vineyards extend from the Roero to the territory of Barolo. Their wines range from white Roero Arneis and Favorita to red Barbera, Nebbiolo-based Roero and Barolo DOCG.

    The tour will begin with a guided visit of their new cellar which is an architectural masterpiece. It is over 5,000 square metres that descend 28 metres deep under the hill, divided into separate areas for aging, barriques, and a tasting room. At its center lies the heart and soul of the wine cellar: The Wheel Room. It was designed with a dozen arches and topped with a cupola to represent the wheel of the Roero family, the symbol of the medieval lords who ruled these lands. The tour will end with a tasting of four wines in their private tasting room.
