Barolo & Barbaresco Wine Tour with a Sommelier

61 reviews
We will start our day in the historical center of Neive, a small medieval hilltop town. One of the towns of the Barbaresco wine area and one of Italy’s top 5 most beautiful hilltop villages. We will sit down in a caffè with a warm beverage of your choice and will go over the area with the local maps to give a better idea of the regions, the grapes, the winemaking process, and what we will be tasting throughout the day. From there we will take a beautiful drive through the the hilly roadways that are covered in vines that brings us to our first winery stop, where we will see the wine making process, talk about some family history, and a taste of some of the family’s most precious wines. After we will stop in a medieval village for lunch at a small local spot, before heading to our second winery visit. We will then after, head back to our meeting point where you will be free to enjoy an aperitivo or dinner after the tour. The start time is at 9.30 and the end time is at 17.00

As many other reviewers have pointed out, this place dates back to the 16th Century and it has been making wine continuously since then and as a result, has a fascinating history to go with the very interesting wines. This is a small winery and one feels like you are sitting in the living room of an old friend. Make room for buying the wines, you can find clothes anywhere, but wines like these are much rarer.

Nice winery with an amazing ancient cellar builds hundreds of years ago under the building and the garden. It is unique and a MUST if you want to visit an historical handmade traditional CANTINA PIEMONTESE. Unfortunately, it is in the center of Neive which makes it too busy, too commercial and too crowded. The tasting room is in the entrance of a typical Piemontese house but it lacks of space and calm to really appreciate it. The lady attending us was maybe a bit tired as she was lacking of passion, being too rushed, jumping from one guest to the other without creating the kind of atmosphere and relationship a guest is used to when is visiting a vineyard. Last but not least, although we spent more than 130 euros, we have been charged with a tasting fee of 10 euros which we never experienced in 7 years in a row going around so many different wine yards in Langa. Poor experience with the exclusion of the cellar…

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.

This place is a hoot! We were hosted by 2 elderly women and I felt bad that I ddin't speak Italian, but she did a great job and we had some help from a bilingual customer. As others have noted, the tour of the cellar is worth the price of admission. We loved the natural stone, the mold/fungus, the snails. Did I mention it dates back to 1582? And then there's the cats, beloved by the women and ever present. The wines were quite good and even though we didn't have room in our suitcases, we bought some anyway!

The cellar is quite an experience, the oldest in Italy still producing wine. The wine tasting is accompanied by different types of cheese and hazelnuts. It costs 10€, well worth it. The lady was friendly and welcoming. I believe one shouldn’t miss il Glicine.
