We visited on our first night in Alba and we were welcomed by the lovely Sabrina.

Sabrina assisted us in selecting a fabulous bottle of wine, and gave us a lot of information regarding different wineries to visit.

Appreciated the complimentary plate of cheese, salami and crostini.

We (and our two dogs) were made to feel so welcome. We visited several wine bars in Alba, but this was our absolutely favourite. Thanks Sabrina. (George and Luigi say hello to Chloe!).

So what do you do in Alba after you have finished your evening having had a wonderful meal at La Piola but not quite ready for the night to finish. It was just after midnight when we found Voglia di Vino and met Luca and his wife who were incredibly welcoming and talked us through their enoteca and their wines. The range of Piedmont wines was stunning and their expertise very clear.

We had a great time through 3 bottles of great wine.

When in Alba - you must visit here

We stopped by on a Monday at 1:30 and we were the only customers. The English speaking owner spent two hours with us discussing wines, the region and offering us four types of Red Wine ( Dolcetto, Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Barolo for 15 euros each). We were also given cheese, sausage, focaccia, and bread to enhance the tasting. My husband and I had the same type of wine but each of us had wine from a different vineyard. We shared the generous samples and were able to try eight samples in the end by sharing. The wines in his store ranged from very expensive, 100 euros plus to 15 euros. We bought three bottles. We have attended many wine tastings but this experience was the best so far. The owner loves wine and doesn't represent any one vineyard, he just wants to give you great wine to try!

This wine bar is a real find. Great selection of Italian wine by the glass and even more, many more, by the bottle. A great chance to try some of Italy's amazing wines including some of the very best. There are some tables outside on a relatively traffic free street and more inside. There is a short but nice menu to accompany the wine and the music on an evening works. Service is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Will visit often and highly recommend.
