Barolo and Barbaresco wine tour

1 review
A full-day tour with a small group (up to 7 guests) from Alba with a professional driver and luxury van.<br><br>Drive on the most panoramic wine routes within the area of production of Barolo wine with views over vineyards, medieval towers and quaint villages. <br><br>Visit a first off-the-beaten track winery where Barolo wine is aged and enjoy a wine tasting of four premium wines including different types of Barolo.<br><br>Some free time in one of the villages of the area wondering around wine shops or simply enjoying the quiet and cozy atmosphere.<br><br>The second winery we visit, it includes a light lunch (salami, a plate of cheese with honey and jam, warm focaccia) paired with their wines.<br><br>Later, drive East of Alba where the Langhe hills get shaped like natural amphitheaters, originating a unique micro climate and exposure which makes the cultivation of Nebbiolo grapes ideal for Barbaresco wine. Visit the third family-run cellar of the day and partake in one more premium wine tasting with more food.

This is a small family estate / producer from a long line of winemakers. Marcus, a young man who I think will make a name for himself in years to come has gone out on his own, even drawing the artwork for his labels. Born into a wine family and university trained in the art and science of winemaking, Marcus is full of both knowledge and passion for his craft. This made the tour of the winery more interesting than most. We visited 4 wineries in Barbaresco over 2 days, and enjoyed this tour the most. The tasting includes the full range of wines, grissini, cheese and salumi. I believe the tour fees were waived with our purchase of 6 well-priced bottles.

Cascina Albano was a top highlight of our trip to the Langhe region. Highly recommend a stop at this family-run winery located at the top of a hill just outside of Barbaresco. Marco gave a friendly and informative tour, including his family's winemaking history and all the details of every stage of the grape growing and wine making process. Marco is so passionate about his work and it clearly shows in the final product. The tasting was wonderful, with a thoughtful discussion of the multiple wines we tried (which were all outstanding). Loved it and hope to come back someday!

I have just returned from a visit to Turin to visit my son and his partner. They arranged a visit to this winery in Barbaresco. My wife and I have paid many visits to various wineries in this area. This winery was by far the very best yet. Our visit was hosted by Marco Vacca who is the son of the present owner. Marco combines the formal education of a modern wine producer with all the passion of a family long steeped in wine production. The range and depth of his knowledge was superb. He even had large glass containers showing the different soil compositions of his vineyard and he then explained the effects this has on the different vines grown in his vineyard. After the informative talk we got down to the business in hand - namely tasting wine. Even here he was both knowledgable and helpful. We tasted all that he produces and as we tasted he explained where in the vineyard they were grown and how both the topography and the soil influenced both colour and taste of the wines. All in all it was the best winery visit we have made in almost ten years of visiting the area. The proof of the pudding is in the eating - or in this case the buying. I have never before bought more than a couple of bottles due to transporting them back home. On this occasion I bought 12 bottles. Marco is fully geared up for shipping and my wine was home in five days properly packed in polystyrene cases. If you want the best vineyard experience in this area then go to Casino Albano you will not regret it.

My daughter arranged a wine tasting here for my birthday. It was wonderful to experience such passion for the wine and the environment in which its made and we live in. We must return when the wine in Terracotta is ready to try .......always interested in innovation and different ideas. Wonderful to try Freisa and know that old traditions are trying to be maintained it is harder to find this old variety of wine. Highly recommend this very informative passionate producer.

We read about this winery on trip advisor and decided to go there. The countryside is breathtaking and we couldn’t have chosen a better place. The owner is a sixth generation wine maker, well educated and passionate about his wine-making. We sampled all of his wines and liked every one (not usual). We also learned about Barbaresco and the many varieties of grapes grown in the area. Don’t miss this winery.
