Make your way to the renowned Coppo Winery in Asti’s Canelli commune midmorning, and begin with a guided tour of the extensive underground cellars. Carved into natural rock beginning in the late 1800s, this labyrinth of tunnels and arches stretches over 16,400 square feet (5,000 square meters) and was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2014.

After a walk through these ‘underground cathedrals’ filled with barrels of wine and historical production artifacts, head to a special tasting room to sample some of Coppo’s best pours. Taste three reserve wines, along with the estate’s Moncalvina Moscato d’Asti for a sweet finish. As you sip and snack on local gourmet specialties, learn the winemaker’s secrets behind each varietal through guided commentary and multimedia aids including photos, videos, and virtual vineyard tours.

Learn how Canelli’s mineral-rich soil improves the wines’ flavor and longevity, and hear how this small patch in Piedmont became the birthplace and capital of sparkling Italian spumante. Hear the legends behind the region’s most renowned varietals, such as how chardonnay and white Piedmontese grapes arrived here in the 19th century and how rustic barbera triumphed through it’s rocky beginnings to become one of Italy’s most popular wines.

By the end of the 2-hour tasting experience, you’ll have a new appreciation for some of Piedmont's — and Italy’s — most celebrated wines.
