Truffles and wine in the Langhe area of Piedmont
A short trip to southern Piedmont takes you to the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato area, where your visit cannot fail to explore not only the local culture, but also the fine food & wine the area is famous for. Here the local fare is graced by the area’s celebrated truffles and accompanied by wines like Barbera, Barbaresco, Dolcetto and Dogliani. It is home to numerous parks, gardens and wonderful towns steeped in history and tradition, not least the medieval Castiglione Falletto, Castello di Monticello d’Alba, and the Bosco dei Pensieri in the Fontanafredda Royal Estate, with its 250 acres of vineyards.
A trip to Mondovì offers the bravest visitors the chance to enjoy a view of the area from the sky… in a hot air balloon!
