The basics

Oenophiles flock to the town of La Morra to sample the local Barolo, among Italy’s most renowned wine, made from the nebbiolo grapes produced in the vineyard-covered hillsides surrounding the town. A visit to the historic center is included in many Piedmont wine tours, with time to explore the center and taste the prestigious wines produced in the Le Langhe-Roero countryside.

Wine tasting day trips generally include lunch featuring this food-centric region’s famous cuisine. For an unforgettable view of this protected landscape, opt for a hot-air balloon ride over Piedmont.

The Protected Landscapes of Le Langhe-Roero and Monferrato

Piedmont’s vineyard landscape, known as Le Langhe-Roero and Monferrato, were named together as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014. The region is recognized for its uniquely beautiful landscapes, which comprise five wine growing districts and the historic hill towns of Serralunga, Nieve, La Morra, Barolo, and Bra. The history of winemaking here probably began during the time of the Etruscans, five centuries before the birth of Christ, and this corner of Piedmont continues to produce some of Italy’s most famous wines.
