What You Can Expect

Get picked up at your hotel in central Alba, or meet your guide at another spot in the city center, to begin your invigorating hike through the Piedmont hills.

The vineyard-covered landscape of this, the Langhe wine-producing region, is one of the most recent entries on Italy's list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Follow your experienced guide along the 11-mile (18-km) route from Alba to Barbaresco and back, taking in the glorious scenery along the way.

Arrive in Barbaresco at the wine estate of a small, family-run winery to tour the wine cellars and meet the family behind the operation. Enjoy a traditional 'farmer's lunch' of cold dishes such as cheese, bread sticks, frittata, salami, and dessert – with at least 4 different wines paired throughout the lunch so you can sample some of the area's famous wines.

Head for the tower of Barbaresco after lunch in order to take in the commanding views over the Tanaro River and surrounding countryside. Spend a bit of free time in the town of Barbaresco itself before starting the return hike with your guide.
