What our guests say

The trip you put together was beyond expectations. The Piedmont Wine Tour and winery guide were very knowledgeable and friendly, three great wineries. Nice to have the small, medium and large. I liked Barolo and the other towns we visited in Piedmont. Very different from Tuscany, the comparison was interesting. Best regards - Joe Serieno

Private Barolo Wine Tour Program?

Your discovery of Piedmont's top red wine, Barolo, begins when your friendly, English-speaking private chauffeur greets you at your accommodations the morning of your full-day Barolo Wine Tour.  First up, a visit to the town of Alba (Italian, meaning "dawn"), an international capitol of wine and truffles dating back to the era of Julius Caesar.  You will then be off to explore the lush, vibrant heartland of the Barolo wine region.  Your first winery visit will take you to one of most highly-rated regional wineries, where you will enjoy a visit to the cellars and a guided tasting of the estate's outstanding wines led by an English-speaking winery expert.

The second town you will visit is Barolo, featuring a great fortification in the city's historic center with the remainder of the town huddled up against it for protection.  The powerful Falletti clan reigned here beginning in the mid-13th century through the end of the 17th century.  The castle in the heart of Piedmont now features an exhibition of local, interesting artifacts.  Following your visit to Barolo, we will be happy to continue your tour with a lunch booking in a wonderful local trattoria nearby.

The afternoon holds a second round of Barolo tastings at a small, family-run winery known for producing top-quality Italian wines.  These experiences will leave you with an enhanced appreciation of this special Italian red wine, and the stupendous region that produces these memorable Italian wines.

Barolo The King - Background Information

Barolo is the undisputed king of Italian red wines.  Following the path of its celebrated counterpart, Barbaresco, both wines are made from the Nebbiolo grape which yields deeply perfumed, mid-weight wines with good aging potential.  Among the other noteworthy Piedmont wines are the incisive, vibrant Barbera and the softer, lusher Dolcetto.  The Piedmont area was made famous by Marc de Grazia's "Selection of Fine Wines from the Great Crus of Italy" featuring of course, Barolo, but also Scavino, Cavalloto, Clerico, Altare and Molino wines.  Piedmont is also known for its culinary treasures including aromatic truffles and several variations of goat and sheep cheeses...the stuff of connoisseurs' dreams.
