Welcome to Piedmont!
Start your journey through the wonders of Piedmont with the gorgeous Venaria Reale, famous Savoy Family residence and discover Le Langhe- one of the most special terroirs of Italy and homeland of world famous wines such as the legendary Barolo and Nebbiolo- and jewel of Italian gastronomy, the white truffle.
Barolo & White Truffles
Explore the Langhe area in four days through a special professional tasting of Barolo and Barbaresco, a white truffle-hunting experience and a dedicated cooking class about ancient recipes. Enjoy the Slow Food Wine Bank with a special master-class and taste the Bra, one of the most delicious Italian cheeses.
The Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta fairytale
Enjoy two days exploring the Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta discovering the tiny town of Stresa and the magic Isola di San Giulio, recognised in 2018 as one of the most beautiful places in the world. A 2-stars Michelin restaurant, with its famous chef, waits for you for a journey through Piedmontese culinary traditions.
After our gourmet breakfast we will reach Turin International Airport where we will say “arrivederci”.
Piedmont (which translates roughly in English as ‘foot of the mountain’) is known in Italy as “the land of mountains”. Surrounded by the highest Italian peaks and set within the Alps, Piedmont offers incredibly beautiful landscapes to its visitors. Landscapes that form a backdrop of sweeping, picturesque valleys and characterise this welcoming part of the Bella Italia.
But nature is just one of the many attractions of Piedmont, a region rich in typical DOP and IGP products (this is a brand awarded by EU for a high level of quality, for strong connection to their original territory and for traditional and unique production methods). Cheeses like Bra, Gorgonzola and Grana Padano as well as the Doja salami (which is covered with melted lard and takes its name from the container in which it is prepared, a terracotta basket called doja) are just some of the delicacies you will taste during this tour.
The landscapes of Langhe and Monferrato are full of cultivated hills and vineyards blessed with small towns and castles. Expanses of water and rice paddies, long rows of poplar trees and old farmhouses are all parts of the typical scenery of the Piedmont area. Thanks to the incredible variety and beauty of the composition of its soil, Piedmont is perfectly suited for the production of wines such as Barolo, Dolcetto, Barbera, Barbaresco, Moscato and Pinot. These are only a few of the delicious wines which have this extraordinary region as their origin, in fact there are more that 100 of them!
Together we will have some of the most remarkable wine experiences and, of course, you will also have the chance to taste the Asti spumante DOCG, one of the most famous Italian sparkling wines.
And do not forget truffles! Of course, we cannot leave Piedmont without having participated in an exciting truffle hunt and without having tasted them! It will be a feast of flavours, colours, scents and beautiful views. I can guarantee you will fall in love with Piedmont!
