Eventhough the weather wasn’t great, it was a wonderful experience to drive around the small villages with our guide Marco, hearing their story and ending it with a well executed and tasteful wine tasting. This is a great way for beginners to the Barolo area to experience the wine and history.

Tour guide Manuela and driver great, food was very good and plentiful, only the view was missing. All in all a great, informative and entertaining excursion!
