Monferrato and Langhe: a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Heritage of all with unique experiences.

In 2014 the wine-growing landscapes of Langhe-Roero and Monferrato became part of the UNESCO World Heritage for its “Exceptional Universal Value”. As UNESCO states, the value of this territory is represented by the deep-rooted wine culture and the extraordinary landscape, shaped by the work of generations of people who have always dedicated their efforts to the cultivation of the vine and the production of wine. A heritage that winds through 6 themed areas of extraordinary beauty.

Canelli: Wines and History

Not far from Nizza Monferrato is Canelli, which houses a real jewel to be discovered: the Cattedrali Sotterranee, underground cellars built under the city to produce and preserve the precious Moscato. This vine, cultivated on the hills around Canelli, has recently become DOCG and can be tasted in three variants: Moscato d’Asti DOCG, Asti Spumante and Asti Secco. Do not forget that it is in Canelli that the Italian spumante was born!

Asti: Wines and History

Asti is a town with a very rich history, as demonstrated by its varied architecture. In the centre, you can find medieval buildings and sumptuous eighteenth-century palaces. Among the most interesting are: the Crypt of Sant’Anastasio, the majestic Cathedral, Palazzo Mazzetti, which usually hosts temporary art exhibitions of international interest. The best time to visit the city is September, the month of the Palio di Asti, the Sagre Astigiane and the Douja.

Nizza Monferrato and its Barbera

Nizza Monferrato lies in the Alto Monferrato region, it is the capital of Barbera from a commercial and promotional point of view, an area which got the special designation of origin for the wine produced here: IL NIZZA DOCG. A city that has always been considered important also thanks to its strategic position with respect to the provinces of Asti and Alessandria. In the surrounding areas you can count about 900 vineyards mainly cultivated with Barbera and over 200 wineries specializing in the production of Barbera D.O.C.G. wine.

Barolo: a treasure from Langhe

The area which includes Barolo, Castiglione Falletto, Diano d’Alba, La Morra, Monforte d’Alba, Novello and Serralunga d’Alba is linked to the international value of Barolo wine, a wine which derives from a long historical tradition.

The landscape of the “Langa del Barolo” is characterized by vineyards spread on hillsides, interspersed here and there with medieval villages dominated by imposing castles. In the area there are many places related to the entire production chain of Barolo, among which, wineries of historical foundation stand out.

The ``Infernot`` of Monferrato

The infernot are cellars in sandstone, dug beneath common houses and used for the storage of bottles. These are real works of art, born from the tradition and wisdom of the peasants and they represent a cultural trait to be discovered in this area. The buildings known as Infernot are intimately linked to the centuries-old history of wine production in Piedmont and therefore appear in the main hilly areas of this region.

The hills of Barbaresco

The municipalities of Barbaresco and Neive are significant examples of the production and cultural-landscape system of the Barbaresco DOCG wine.

Barbaresco is a medieval village located along the river Tanaro. Contended for centuries by the municipalities of Alba and Asti for its strategic position, it is now one of the most important references of the entire local area. Symbolized by the imposing medieval tower, which is among the main ones in Piedmont.

The Castle of Grinzane Cavour

The castle and its hill are a historical testimony of the Piedmontese viticulture in the Langhe-Roero and Monferrato area. Today, in fact, this prestigious manor houses the Regional Wineshop of Piedmont. The vineyard around the castle is an important centre of research and experimentation in the whole European area.
