Evi and Kalle made us feel like part of the family. They were not busy at the time so we were given the loft apartment which was truly spacious and beautifully decorated. We arrived at approximately 1 pm whereupon Evi suggested we have a glass of wine produced from their own grapes. Not only did the wine arrive, but also salami, cheese, tomatoes and breadsticks - we certainly didn't need lunch. Evi gave us a list of the towns to visit in the area and we weren't disappointed in any - Neave and Serralunga D'Asti were particularly beautiful. On both nights we were there Kalle shared two of the wines he thought we would enjoy. Would thoroughly recommend Cascina Blon to anyone looking for quality accommodation in the beautiful Asti area.
