Visit "WI-MU" in Barolo (5 Min. away), the new museum for the word leading wines.
The Barolo Castle
The Langhe, an area which is rich in romanticism and history, the homeland of prized wines and of an authentic cuisine, which from year to year attracts the gourmets from all over the world, especially starting from mid October at the beginning of the truffle season. The Langhe have not experienced the invasion of mass tourism, and it is particularly the lovers of good wine and good cuisine who especially enjoy staying here.
Typical product tasting
You will be able to dine like a Prince in one of the many Castles, or savour the regionís specialities in one of the countless little Osterie restaurants scattered around the hillsides.
Here is the home of the Barolo, Barbera and Nebbiolo wines, and returning home without taking a bottle of these prized reds would be almost a sacrilege. Visit some of the many wine producers of the area and taste their products in their company. This will be a truly memorable experience!
If discovering the area by car is not your ideal choice or perhaps you are simply sportsmen, you will be able to go for a pleasant cycle or a walk, having the choice of the road or the earthen pathways. In this way, even if you are amateur cyclists, you may feel the thrill of the professionals of the "Giro díItalia" cycling race, which often passes through the Langhe hillsides. The maps of the trekking pathways of the area are on sale at the Castle.
The golf course situated at Cherasco is particularly beautiful, just approx. 10 minutesí drive away (www.golfcherasco.com). A fairytale setting and the sun always at the ready are the ideal accomplices for improving your style. Also this new, nearby Golfclub is very nice: www.barologolfclub.it
Even though Milan and Turin, shopping metropolises par excellence, are not far away, Alba, Cherasco and Bra have nothing to envy of them and reveal themselves as secret shopping paradises. In the main streets, you can find the most well known Brand names at interesting prices. And not forgetting the typical Pasticcerie cake shops which display true jewels of chocolate ....
How can you possibly resist such a temptation??
