Among other things, the wineries we will mention are located in the municipalities along what is known as the Strada del Barolo. A unique itinerary that connects 18 Piedmontese municipalities for a picturesque journey through the heart of the Langhe.

Langhe: where are they?

Let’s start with the basics: where are the Piedmontese Langhe?

Situated between the provinces of Cuneo and Asti, the Langhe are easily accessible. About 2 hours from the province of Milan and an hour from Turin, you will find a haven of peace.

The Langhe is a Piedmontese gem, a territory dotted with vineyards and towns worth visiting, surrounded by a magical atmosphere.

Designated a World Heritage Site in 2014, the Langhe is a diverse land with a long winemaking tradition that can boast a large number of DOC and DOCG wines today. Famous are Barolo, Barbaresco, Dolcetto, and Barbera d’Alba.

Let’s get to it and start the tour among the must-visit wineries in the Langhe.

1. Wineries in the Langhe: Tenuta Baràc

We start the journey from the city of Alba (CN) where we recommend visiting Tenuta Baràc, a winery of over 25 hectares, 12 of which are vineyards practicing organic farming.

There are numerous wines you can taste with the owners of the winery. For example, with the Wine Tour Tenuta Baràc experience, you can try Barbaresco DOCG, Barbera d’Alba Superiore DOC, and Barolo DOCG.

What is the best time to visit the Langhe? The high season runs from early September to late October, the ideal time to savor all the flavors of these lands: it is indeed the time of truffles and harvest.

Since we are in Alba, we recommend not missing the Alba White Truffle Fair. Not only one of the most renowned fairs but also one of the most important gastronomy events in Italy and the world for Langhe, Roero, and Monferrato.

2. Azienda Agricola Diego Morra and Bar to Bar itinerary

Just 15 minutes from Alba, you can easily reach Verdurno (CN), a small village in the heart of the Langhe. Here you can visit Azienda Agricola Diego Morra, located in the middle of one of the most prestigious Crus of the Barolo area: Monvigliero.

Meeting the owners of the winery will be an opportunity to discover the history of their wines and their family. In particular, Francesca will guide you through different tasting paths. With her, we suggest trying the Nebbiolo Nuances experience, where, in addition to a complete cellar visit, the vinification and maturing spaces, you will have the chance to taste 6 of their most important Nebbiolo-based wines.

Another particularly appreciated experience is Barolo al Plurale, where Francesca will guide you through the discovery of 6 Barolo wines from different vintages.

In addition to classic tastings, Diego Morra Farm proposes several events throughout the year.

In this area, we also recommend following the Bar to Bar itinerary, which goes from the Barbaresco area to that of Barolo for a total length of 124 km divided into 7 stages. For example, the stretch from Alba to Verdurno is 15.5 km.

In this way, you can enjoy long walks in the Langhe, enjoy the view of vine-covered hills that stretch as far as the eye can see, and admire perched villages that will offer you timeless emotions.

3. La Morra and the Chapel of Barolo

Speaking of places to visit in the Langhe, very close to the town of Verduno, we find La Morra (CN), a small town with fewer than 3000 inhabitants. Here stands Borgogno Rivata, a young and modern winery in industrial style that blends elements such as iron, cement, and wood in every corner.

On the hills of this territory, prized grape varieties are cultivated. Among these, the most renowned is Nebbiolo, from which Barolo and Nebbiolo d’Alba are produced. For this reason, we recommend their Winery Experience – The Special Edition.

It starts with Langhe Arneis, with its fruity notes and woody aroma, moving on to Barbera d’Alba Superiore with its scent of ripe blackberry. Then follows the delicate yet complex Langhe Nebbiolo Bricot which precedes the Verduno Pelaverga, one of Italy’s smallest DOCs. Finally, Barolo, with its 5 years of aging, concludes the experience.

Here’s a gem for you. Did you know that in La Morra there is the most colorful church in Italy?

It’s called the Chapel of Barolo and is a small colorful gem nestled in the Piedmontese countryside surrounded by vineyards. Entry is free, and we recommend you make a visit. It’s the perfect place for breathtaking photos.

4. Wineries in the Langhe: Castello di Perno

Staying near La Morra, we recommend you visit Monforte D’alba (CN) where you can find Castello di Perno, a winery with a classic imprint and at the same time a contemporary vision that finds in elegance the expressive peak of its wines.

In this regard, we propose a super exclusive experience: Art & Wine. You will have the opportunity to explore the winery walking among the rows of vines at Castelletto. Later the visit will continue at the renowned Castello di Perno (historic home of the famous Turin publisher Giulio Einaudi and today a Cultural Association of Contemporary Arts).

Looking for wineries in the Langhe where you can do a tasting with a reserve? We recommend Fortemasso, located in Monforte d’Alba (CN), one of Italy’s most beautiful villages.

Here you can try the Fortemasso with Reserve Experience where you can get to know the winery thoroughly by tasting all their labels. From the fresh Dolcetto to the precious Barolo Riserva, passing through the intense Barbera d’Alba and the elegant Barolo Castelletto.

Also, from here you can easily reach 2 Big Benches, nestled in the vineyards, one fuchsia and one pink. To date, there are 181 giant benches, and you just have to find them all.

7. Among the Barbaresco hills: Massimo Rivetti

We now move to the territory of Barbaresco. Here stands the Massimo Rivetti company with its 25 hectares of vineyards cultivated entirely organically. We are in Neive (CN), specifically on the Serraboella hill, one of the most important for the production of Barbaresco.

Among the most appreciated experiences is the Visit among Barrels e Vineyards, in which you will be welcomed in the cellar and enjoy a walk through the surrounding vineyards. You will have the opportunity to learn about every phase of the winemaking process: from fermentation to maturation. After the visit, you can independently choose 8 wines from their selection, discovering characteristics and peculiarities.

If you are a fan of Barbaresco, we recommend the Regional Barbaresco Wine Shop, a deconsecrated church turned wine shop where you can find only Barbaresco DOCG from 148 wineries.

8. G.D. VAJRA: Organic since 1971

We arrive in the heart of the Langhe: in Barolo, in the province of Cuneo where we find G.D. Vajra, where since 1971 organic wines have been produced. Today it is led by the second generation of the family and is positioned as one of the most creative wineries in Barolo.

At Vajra, you can live a cellar experience with a tasting of 4 wines, including a Barolo DOCG. To ensure the best possible experience, the tasting will not be accompanied by any food.

In the area of Barolo, in addition to the activities already seen above, it is possible to find the Corkscrew Museum. The visit itinerary presents 500 specimens of ancient corkscrews from around the world and made from the second half of the 1600s.
