We contacted Langa Wine Tour to arrange a wine tour. Marco Carosso replied within a few hours via email and WhatsApp, and offered us two options: 'a day with a local winemaker', where he would show us around personally, and 'an independent wine tour', where we would get an itinerary with 2 or 3 visits to producers. Both options would be tailored to our wishes (famous barolo houses, small local producers, or a mix) and with respect to your place of stay. They come with a lunch reservation (not included in the price), also tailored to our wishes ranging from simple to Michelin star. Since the independent tour was easier on our wallet (50/75 euro pp for 2/3 visits with tastings) we chose that that one. Between 11:30 and 17:00 we visited 3 wineries, Marco's own in the middle. All of them were interesting, ranging from small, medium and large family business. In Fratelli Revello we tasted wine while practically sitting in the vineyard where it grew. I have to admit that the visit to Marco and his small family winery Cascina Galarin was the best. His English is very good, and talked enthusiastically about the whole process from grapegrowing, to harvesting (which was in full progress at the time), to wine making, and drinking/aging. He also took us to his vineyards, which offered a spectacular view of the full surroundings of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato. We kind of felt that we missed out on not having him with us all day, but this was a nice and modestly priced alternative. Like everyone who has done this before us: Highly recommended!

Marco is a very enthousiast and passionated guide. The highlight of the day was the visit in the vineyard itself where we got some info about the cultivation of the vines. The different wineries and lunch spot were well chosen. We were not pushed to buy wines what made us feel also very comfortable. A very interesting day with a lot of fun facts!

We requested a truffle hunting tour and our experience with La Casa Delle Trifulau far exceeded our expectations. A big thank you for setting it up for us we had an amazing time learning about, hunting and tasting the truffles.

If you want to go on a wine tour in the Piedmont region, I highly recommend going with Marco. We were able to book a tour on very short notice. Marco does not limit his tour to the agricultural side of wine-making (which is of course still very prominent), but also expands into the economics and relations with other wine regions and wine makers. He will give you an honest assessment of the impact of global warming, expectations for the future,... and backs up his story with visual proof during the tour. And as a bonus, he is a good driver which is definitely a plus when you travel from winery to winery over the beatutiful hils of Piedmont after a few glasses of wine. He is also open to recommend you nice gelateria's or restaurants in the neighbourhood for after the tour. Overall, it was definitely a 5-star experience.

This was by far the best wine tour I have ever experienced. Marco was so charming and knowledgeable. His insights into both the Piemonte wine region and his approach to farming, viticulture and life was really interesting and refreshing. The wine he produces is epic. He was so patient when we (maybe) overstayed in the final vineyard of the day sampling more wine. He very kindly facilitated sending wine from not only his own farm but also from the Pira vineyard to Dublin. My cousin and I learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed the day. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting this beautiful area in the Langhe. Grazie mille Marco!
