Trip Summary

Based in the charming village of La Morra, at the heart of the Barolo countryside, these two and three night packages will provide you with the opportunity to experience the truly unique Piedmont culture, whilst enjoying a fascinating introduction to the world-famous Barolo and Barbaresco appellations. Once settled in your preferred room grade at the breathtakingly luxurious Palas Cerequio, you will have some free time to relax and explore your stunning surroundings. In the evening, we would be pleased to recommend a restaurant and reserve you a table for dinner if required.

Barolo wine tour

On the morning of day two, you will be met at your hotel by a luxury chauffeured vehicle, which will accompany you throughout the day, visiting the Barolo and Barbaresco vineyards. Guests are free to choose their three favourite Barolo and Barbaresco producers for a tour and a glass or two of their famous wines. There are several options subject to your preference and availabilities, including Bruno Rocca, l’Azienda Agricola Poderi Einaudi, la Tenuta di Fontanafredda, la Spinetta, Marcarini, Marchesi di Gresy, Cortese Giuseppe, Marchesi di Barolo, Oddero, Elio Altare and G.D. Vajra.

Please note that a number of the more exclusive estates do not receive visitors and some are closed at weekends. We would be pleased to discuss the various options with you and contact the individual estates accordingly. A four course lunch, perfectly paired with local wines will be served in a traditional Italian Osteria in Bra, the birthplace of the Slow Food Movement.  After such an enlightening day, enjoy a free evening in your lovely hotel.
