After the hunting experience in the woods, you will be guided to the picturesque restaurant surrounded by an unforgettable landscape of vineyards. You will enjoy the excellent combination of truffle delicacies paired with famous Barolo wine. Following the lunch, your driver will take to Barbaresco village for a short walk around local heritage sites.

What people are saying about Barbaresco

The afternoon with Marco was perfect! At 2 p.m. we met punctually at the agreed location. Since the weather wasn't great, he made suggestions for alternatives. That was great! But then we ran and we had time to ask all the questions. His knowledge of the region is great! The tour of the wine cellar was interesting and the tasting was very good! We bought good wine! Cheese and salami were excellent too! Thanks!

During the hike we received a lot of information about viticulture in this area and the area itself. In the winery we visited, we were also given extensive information about the wine production there and the different types of wine, of which we were able to taste five. During the hike itself there were many beautiful views over the Langhe. Overall, a very nice afternoon!
