What you'll do

The Barolo vs Barbaresco day tour begins in the town of Alba where your driver greets you on a luxury 7-seats van.

First, enjoy a scenic ride to the Langhe hills, on panoramic wine routes winding through quaint hamlets and medieval castles of the Piedmont wine region.

Visit a boutique winery completely surrounded by vineyards where Nebbiolo and other local grape varietals are grown. The cellar tour steps inside the fermentation and aging rooms and it ends with a generous wine tasting including the comparison of different types and vintages of Barolo wine, aged in large oak barrels (traditional style).

Before the next stop, take a stroll in one of the villages of the area wandering around wine shops and picturesque photo opportunities.

The Barolo vs Barbaresco day tour includes a light lunch (3 to 4 courses) paired with wines of Piedmont, set in the second Barolo cellar of the day, with views over the vineyards of Piedmont.

The last part of the day is set in the wine district of Barbaresco, located on the eastern side of Alba, where micro climate and sun exposure are different than in the area of Barolo.

Enjoy the third wine tasting of the day, focusing on Barbaresco wine aged in small French and toasted barrels (modernist style), paired with cheese and salami.

My name is Marco and I am a licensed tour guide. My two grandfathers taught me the secrets of wine making and truffle hunting, as one had a cellar and the other one was a truffle hunter himself.

Years later, I met with Alessandra who shares the love for our region and works as well as a licensed tour guide. The two of us have co-founded Meet Piemonte, a boutique tour operator that offers exclusive, off-the-beaten track experiences in the Piedmont region of Italy.

Our suppliers, vendors and partners are vetted and carefully selected among those who deliver excellent services and have the attitude to bring our guests beyond an ordinary experience.

The human factor is the most important aspect in all our experiences and it is the long-lasting memory to bring home at the end of a visit to Piedmont.

Trip was beyond our wildest expectations. Our guide Marco was very articulate, well-prepared and the whole day was immaculately planned, almost choreographed. Not only we’ve been to multiple outstanding places in a day - Alba, La Morra, Barolo, Barbaresca to name a few; but we’ve learned a lot about the history, production and the whole wine culture in the region. Three wineries, handpicked by Marco, are radically different in geographical location, style and size (you’ll both see family owned and corporate wineries). Mindblowing wines and delicious appetizers were perfectly paired. One of the best experiences we’ve ever had in Italy. Highly recommended!

This was a fantastic experience. The experiences includes 3 wineries in the Barolo and Barbaresco areas of Langhe. Marco was very responsive to all messages. The driver, Ivan, was outstanding. We were driven safely and efficiently to all 3 wineries. We were also provided with some additional time in the town of Barbaresco to explore the local shops and to see the scenery. The 3 wineries selected were outstanding at providing us with background of their families, a tour of the wine-making operation, and an excellent tasting. All 3 hosts at the wineries were very knowledgeable and provided us with in-depth descriptions of the wines we tasted. A lunch was included at one of the wineries, and was delicious and paired with the wine being served. Recommended!
