UNESCO protected, this winery will make you feel as though you are stepping back in time!

We were treated to an amazing visit, explaining the wine process, shown the cellar where they make wine and also got to sample the final product.

Family run vineyard located in the Langhe region, expect to visit for a minimum of 2 hours.

Highly recommend.

Wonderfully family run place.
Welcoming, friendly and good wine!
Highly recommend - our youngish family (8, 10, 12 years) were looked after and made most welcome.

(Ignore the 2 negative reviews - one clearly from a commercial tour operator looking to make money from the hospitality of a family run enterprise and didn’t like being caught out!)

We booked in advance. Basically, we called in the morning, asked if we could have a tour in the afternoon. It was no problem. The old woman showed us around. It seemed she was busy with something else when we arrived, but I guess customers go first... We entered the winery and even though everything was in Italian we kind of got everything. The very, (very!) small cellar dates from 1582 and is quite something. It's very humid and mold grows on the walls. Reminds a bit of the old Burgundy cellars. Really something! She showed us a tiny 'room' where they keep the special vintage Barbaresco (just for the family, unfortunately). When we got back to the tasting room, another woman took over, but also in Italian. We got a tasting of pretty much everything we'd like. We got some nuts and cheeses to go with the wine. Of course, she insisted, we'd end with a grappa (and moscato). 'We' meaning the men at the table. I guess women don't drink grappa or moscato here (or perhaps she thought the women had enough!). Best thing was that another group came in. She told us, loosely translated: "here is the wine and the grappa, entertain yourself while I take them to the cellar. Be back soon". Overall experience: It's all a very cosy experience. 2 older women guiding us around, all in Italian. But the best thing is, they take time for you. Since everything was free we just had to buy some bottles. I think that is the appropriate thing to do, at least.

I organised a wine tour for a group coming from all over Europe and contacted the Cantina del Glicine about 5 months in advance and had my booking confirmed. About two weeks prior to my visit I called them to remind my booking and again we were assured we would have a wine tasting. When we arrived at the date/time agreed (29th October 2016), Signora Adriana (with whom I had all my previous exchanges) appeared at the door and said they were far too busy to give us any wine tasting. Simply like that. I reminded her about the confirmed booking and the fact that my group came from all over Europe but frankly she could not care less. I was quite shocked by such an unprofessional behaviour. Unreliable, shockingly rude and unprofessional business. AVOID

Think a natural grotto, then visualise a hollowed-out maze that's cool and damp perfect for housing cellars. Its as close to walking onto a set out of Lord Of The Rings with mushrooms growing over damp walls, gobbled up by snails. What a lovely receptacle for dusty bottles laid down to age.

This has been to date one of the best visit I made to a wine producer. The owner is a passionate old man who deeply loves his job, and this is reflected in the passion he puts in explaining you everything about the wines he produces and even more if you ask. We were a group of 10 and came for a wine tasting experience. We had that, visited the fantastic canteen, had some food, and made new friends.. I would recommend this place anytime if you happen to be in the area!
PS don't forget to call in advance or you might find the door shut..

Our agriturismo, La Mussia, recommended this Cantina and we really enjoyed it! We have toured ceveral wine cellars in Italy and this was definitely one of the most unique--it was simply underground in the backyard of homes, but it was very old and simple. The tour was in all Italian and the woman did not speak English, but between 4 of us with very limited Italian, we were able to understand. After the tour, we tasted several wines along with nuts, cheeses and bread. Fabulous! She was a gracious host and we really enjoyed the visit.

Cantina del Glicine doesn't look like much from the street. The tasting room is quite modest, with a large table and communal chairs around it. The mature lady who pontificated over the wine tasting is a funny character and makes you feel welcome. The cellars are amazing. Dating back to the late 1500s, they are built with bricks, and constitute a maze of tunnels underground. The winery produces a 12 different wines and about 4 grappas. Some of the wines have received important awards, such as tre Bicchieri from Gambero Rosso, Italy's answer to Robert Parker. We arrived late in the afternoon, and after tasting wonderful wines at three other locations, so we were less impressed by the wines we were offered at Glicine: they were good, solid wines, but none had a nose, and the finish was short and vanishing.

If you've been doing something since 1582, you must be doing it right. Short tour of the ancient wine cellar (hence, 'cantina,') and a lovely, unrushed tasting in the sunny, inviting tasting room. BTW cats factor heavily in the signage and labeling for Glicine which sets well with me (being a cat lover.) I think we sampled 5 or 6 wines and all were amazing. Highly recommend.
