At Christmas give your friends a magical food and wine experience in the heart of the Langhe!
Two nights in Monforte d’Alba, an ancient medieval town, today considered one of the most visited destinations in the Langhe of Barolo. It is one of the 11 Barolo producing villages which, thanks to the particular composition of the soil, rich in clay, presents full-bodied and well-structured wines.
The first day of arrival, welcome in the chosen accommodation: apartment, farmhouse or charming mansion. Visit of the historical center of Monforte d’Alba and dinner in a typical restaurant with tasting menu (drinks not included).
The second day is dedicated to the discovery of the excellences of the territory: wine and truffles. Depending on the season, it may be Black Truffle or the most prized White Truffle of Alba (from September 21 to January 31): accompanied by an expert “trifulau” and his dog, you will walk in the woods for about an hour in search of the precious loot. At the end, a few steps from the wood, in a small equipped “ciabot”, you will taste the wines coming from the vineyards that surround the wood. Free dinner.
On the third day let’s have fun with the wines! Appointment at the Enoteca Regionale del Barolo where a blind tasting of 3 Barolo wines will be held: it’s up to you to identify in which area the 3 wines are produced!
