Barolo & Barbaresco wines, unparalleled cuisine and UNESCO World Heritage vineyard landscapes.


Barolo Territory

Barolo is iconic. It is the “wine of kings, the king of wines,” and the vineyard landscapes of this area are just as stately. In fact, the vineyards were recognized in 2014 as a UNESCO World Heritage for the centuries of viticulture that has shaped the landscapes and customs of this stunning region. The territory of Barolo is nestled in the foothills of the Alps in southern Piedmont. Explore the most prestigious crus, where the vines grow in neat rows, and the historical wineries that have turned this wine into one of the world’s most prized labels.

Barbaresco Territory

The Barbaresco territory is separated from the Barolo area by the town of Alba. It is a tiny district that includes only the four villages of Barbaresco, Neive, Treiso and San Rocco. It expands for approximately 700 hectares to the south of the Tanaro river, which means it enjoys a slightly more maritime microclimate than the neighbouring Barolo area. Barbaresco is the “Queen,” alongside the “King” Barolo, of Piedmont’s red wine production. Both are made exclusively from Nebbiolo grapes, but Barbaresco’s profile is softer and more approachable. The tannins round out quicker, but long-aging is still necessary for a truly spectacular wine.
