Nowadays everyone is talking about the UNESCO hills, and perhaps you may not know, but not all the Langhe form part of this area.
Well let me say, it’s a real shame. Not because the Barolo or Barbaresco hills aren’t beautiful, but because one the most fascinating features of our land is its extraordinary variety.
The Bassa Langa, with its vineyards and its castles, once owned by illustrious families, that guard the valleys from atop. The Roero, with its steep hills and narrow valleys.
And the Alta Langa, with its woods and wildlife, where you can begin breathing the scent of the sea, where only ruins remain of the castles. And then there’s the hidden strongholds amongst the rivers, the hazelnut groves and the majestic low stone walls that enclose the hills.
It’s beautiful to be able to go from Monforte’s orderly vines to the Pedaggera woods just by moving from one hill to the next.
