Barbaresco Wine Tour
Private day-trip with local tour guide dedicated to Barbaresco wine. Made from the same nebbiolo grape which gives Barolo, Barbaresco is more elegant and aromatic, though very powerful and great over ageing. Also, while Barolo has been around for centuries, Barbaresco is only a few hundred years old and started to be popular in the world of wine thanks to Angelo Gaja who was able to start a revolution in the way wine was made in the Barbaresco zone. Travel through the Barbaresco area of production and discover its three villages.
