«The cultural landscapes of the Piedmont vineyards provide outstanding living testimony to winegrowing and winemaking traditions that stem from a long history, and that have been continuously improved and adapted up to the present day. They bear witness to an extremely comprehensive social, rural and urban realm, and to sustainable economic structures.»
This is the Unesco official declaration of June 22, 2014 when Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato were included in the World Heritage List of UNESCO.
Langhe, Roero and Monferrato are a part of Piedmont marked by priceless excellences in culture, wine and cuisine. Rolling hills hold fine vineyards, which are interrupted by small historical villages where to find authentic taverns that smell of history.
In 1999 we moved here from the city of Turin – we are still very close to this city – so we have learned to know the surroundings saving our interests for the city. We would love to offer you some advice on what to see, where to eat or wich events to attend, here from Cellarengo up to Turin.
Alba with her Fiera del Tartufo (Truffle Fair) is just 20 km away, Asti and its Palio is 30 km away and Turin with its many events is about half an hour drive. This part of Piedmont is a paradise for those who love good food and wine but also physical activity such as hiking, riding a horse and mountain biking.
