Langhe, Roero, and Monferrato are located near the Po River in northern Piedmont, between the hills of the Ligurian Apennines to the west and the coastline of north Liguria to the east, in three separate provinces: Alessandria, Asti, and Cuneo.
Spectacular vistas awaited you at every turn as we explored the landscape, going from vineyard to castle.
This unique land offers some of the most memorable and flavorful food. You can find everything from white truffles to hazelnuts, arborio rice, veal, and many different types of cheese.
The Langhe is home to some of the country's most prestigious vineyards but features also three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, described as an exceptional living testimony to the historical tradition of vine cultivation and winemaking processes.
The Langhe, Roero, and Monferrato vineyards are an exceptional example of man's interaction with his natural environment.
There is Alba, the beautiful capital of the Piedmont Region of Italy; Bra, home to the Slow Food Movement; Pollenzo, which hosts the University of Gastronomic Sciences. There is a constellation of villages that include La Morra, Neive, and Barbaresco, all personable and charming.
To the north, the Monferrato area is in a fertile triangle between Asti, Alessandria, and its historical capital, Casale Monferrato. Vineyards stretch out from every direction, intermixed with castles and celebrated restaurants.
