Wineries in Barolo
The Langhe region is famous above all for its superb red wines
Probably the best known red wine is Barolo, which is a wine made with Nebbiolo grapes from the enchanting town of Barolo, located south-west of Alba, in the Apennines.
Although not even remotely the most commonly produced (red) wine in Piedmont, it is the most famous wine of the region.
Therefore, a visit to an authentic Barolo wine cellar is an activity not to be missed in any tour or tasting of Piedmontese wine.
If you want to discover the best Barolo winery, we at SlowDays offer visits to small family-run Barolo cellars, where you can taste at least four different wines, including Barolo itself.
Another renowned red wine produced with Nebbiolo grapes in the Piedmontese Langhe is Barbaresco. This type of characteristic wine comes, you guessed it, from the town of Barbaresco, which is located northeast of Alba, also in the beautiful mountainous area.
The Barbaresco cellars are among the best wineries to visit in Piedmont, because of their unique variety of Nebbiolo red wine.
Both Barolo and Barbaresco are the cornerstones of the Langhe wine industry, promoters of its fame and notoriety all over the world. And yet, surprisingly, they represent
just 3% of total wine production in the region. The fact that these limited reds are so famous is a testament to their extraordinary quality.
