Wine & Tasting Tour in Canavese
Canavese is the borderland at the foot of the Alps of the Piedmont region, a natural gateway between the Italian peninsula and Europe. This region was a crossroad for armies, merchants, and pilgrims tracing the routes of the Via Salaria and Via Francigena through the valley of Mont Blanc and Graie Alps reaching Turin, the capital of the Savoy Reign and the first Italian capital. This land of lakes, hills, forests, and castles is protected by the Serra Morenica, one of the largest morainic hills in the world.
Langhe, Roero and Monferrato Hills
In the North Western Italian region of Piedmont we find the gentle slopes of Langhe-Roero and Monferrato hills covered from age-old time by its famous vineyards. Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Grignolino, Ruchè, Arneis: these are the grapes which the local great wines are made from, thanks to the magical combination of sea air and Alpine peaks, the unique composition of the soil, the mild microclimate and, what’s very noteworthy, the millenial symbiosis between men’s industry and this unique environment.
