About
When we bought six hectares of the Brunate vineyard in 1970, we also acquired this small church, which was never consecrated. Almost in ruins, it was used to store farm equipment: the room inside was big enough to house a tractor. While art and wine are now seen as an almost natural combination, our family had no desire to become involved with contemporary art back then. It was the great British artist David Tremlett who, during an extended stay in the Langhe region one August, came up with the idea of how to give the chapel a new lease of life. He contacted his friend and colleague Sol Lewitt to work with him on this vibrant, colourful project, a holy place to worship joy, a country parish reaching out to the world.

Worth visiting during a trip to the Langhe
Jul 2021
Cappella del Barolo is an unusual Chapel located in the heart of Langhe. The building has been transformed in a colorful, small piece of modern art. The view to the vineyards on the neighbouring hills is spectacular.

The Chapel is reasonably close to the villages of Barolo and La Morra, so a quick detour is feasible. I recommend to visit during weekdays: on weekends the (non-asphalted) road leading to the Cappella is closed, and parking space is limited.

Close to LaMorra; fun place to drop by for a quick visit - there's a great backstory try to do some quick research first.

Public art in the countryside
Jan 2020
This brightly painted chapel is a lovely place to reflect on the countryside below. It was created to be a respite, a purpose the artists maintained.

Utterly strange but yet peaceful. Walk down to this chapel from the town of La Morra. Up again is not as funny! Worth a visit.

If you are in the area worth visiting. The church where the production of Barolo has been prayed for for years. Interesting, not great.

So Fun

Great little side trip as we waited for our reserved time at a vineyard. Look for the "Big Benches" throughout Piedmont as well.

Colourful chapel
May 2017 • Friends
Beautiful views over La Morra and some of the most important vineyards can be had from the Cappella del Barolo. The Chapel itself is colourful. If you are lucky, the doors are open.
