Full description
Until recently, it was believed that up to the mid-19th century, Barolo was a sweet wine. More recent research, led by a French oenologist however shows that it is actually a dry wine, a version positively accepted by other experts. On this tour, you'll have the chance to discover a unique area surrounded by green hills with a view of the mountains not far off in the distance.

You'll depart from Milan with a private car transfer and, after approximately 2 hours (often less than that), until you arrive at the winery and start your tour by discovering the vineyards, their history and tradition, as well as the particular cultivation techniques for the Barolo grapes.

You'll walk in the vineyards where the history of the Barolo wine began. From the vineyards, you'll then be guided inside the winery to explore the wine cellar and learn about the particular production techniques characteristic of this unique wine. A guided wine tasting will follow, during which time you will taste different varieties of wines accompanied by typical local products.
