What people are saying about Alba

Alessandra was an excellent guide, flexible, nice person and added a lot to the trip. Barolo beautiful. The winery is a smaller one, but this is a lovely place and it has interesting history. Matteo is a real professional, who told a lot about wine making. The tasting and wines were good, of course. The journey between wineyards was spectacular and was crowned with the view from the top of the hill. Thank you Alessandra, recommended!

Gabriele was an amazing guide and the tour was absolutely perfect! We stayed in La Morra and enjoyed the wonderful view, then we went to the village of Barolo and after that on to a vineyard and tasted their wines. Really good day and I really recommend to anyone who wants to learn more about the wines from Piedmont. Great value for money and definitely worth it!

Great tour, and very informative and service-minded guide! Went above and beyond to help us get back to our b&b after the tasting, when transportation proved to be a challenge. Would love to come back again.

Very beautiful as an experience, you know many particularities about wine that many do not explain

The wines were very good and the wine tour was interesting and recommended.
