The Langhe is recognized as a UNESCO world heritage landscape, and is already well-known by foodies and wine-lovers. Yet, for most of us, it’s an area that still needs to be discovered. This insight gives you the chance to explore this area: unspoilt, authentic and simply breath-taking.
The region is famous for food and wine, but we will take you also along meandering roads, through lush forests, fragrant lavender fields, along streams and rivers, neatly cut vineyards and over panoramic hill tops, all this against the spectacular backdrop of the Alps. We will also introduce you to the “Piemontesi”, the hospitable and hard-working people that have shaped this landscape.
Let us inspire you to jump in your car, and start exploring our area!
“The Langhe in 7 days”
Our book tells the thousand different faces of our territory
The Langhe is still a largely undiscovered area in the Piemonte, but is becoming increasingly known for its excellent wines, deliciously home-cooked food and enchanting landscapes. This book introduces you to the beauty and variety of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. That’s a journey through the marvelous landscapes of the Langhe, to share and celebrate traditions, legends, unique food and famous wines.

‘The Langhe in 7 days’ takes you on beautiful roads through immaculately kept vineyards, rustling forests and along meandering streams. All with breath-taking views over hills and valleys with the snow-capped Alps in the background.
Every route is unique: From the chic vineyards of the Barolo and Barbaresco, to the endless plains and forests of the Alte Langhe, and bustling towns such as Alba and Monforte. You can drive the routes in a few hours, but it is better to take the whole day to enjoy the landscape and charming villages to the fullest.
Rosalinde shares her knowledge on the best kept secrets of the region. Restaurants or other attractions that are hidden away in an alley, or somewhere along a windy road far from any known town or village. With this inside-knowledge, you are assured of an unforgettable authentic experience! The white truffle of Alba, hazelnuts, Barolo and Barbaresco wines: typical products that the Langhe are famous for.
Immerse yourself in the landscape, enjoy the food and wine, and celebrate life by visiting one of the many markets and festivals the region offers.
