Take a holiday here and experience the joy that many wine connoisseurs have experienced over the years. Of course you can take a wine tour and participate in tasting, as it would be rude not to!
The fragrant Barolo wine is so revered that it was one of just three wines awarded DOCG status on the day that the classification was introduced in July 1980 (the other two were Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano).
This is where you will find the regional Barolo wine cellar - Enoteca Regionale Del Barolo where you can participate in wine tasting inside the actual Castello del Barolo. The castle is an impressive building that dates back to the 11th Century and is a wonderful place from where to experience the fine taste of the wine.
Another historically interesting building is the church of San Donato, where you can see the burial sites of Barolo's former rulers. You will also find a good choice of restaurants in the town so of course you will be able to dine well here with a good choice of Piedmont flavours to accompany the fine wine.
You have some choices on how to arrive here, firstly if you are driving, you can follow the coast from Nice crossing through the border of France into Piedmont. If you are arriving by plane, then Turin is the closest at approx. 1.5 hours away, and the other choice is to fly to Milan, approx. 2 hours away from Barolo.
You can choose from a collection of handpicked holiday accommodation including villas and self-catering apartments, and B & B hotels in the Barolo area and Piedmont in general. Feel free to ask our experienced travel experts for advice on the best places to stay, or have a look through the catalogue and choose whatever suits you best.
