Alessandra was an excellent guide, flexible, nice person and added a lot to the trip. Barolo beautiful. The winery is a smaller one, but this is a lovely place and it has interesting history. Matteo is a real professional, who told a lot about wine making. The tasting and wines were good, of course. The journey between wineyards was spectacular and was crowned with the view from the top of the hill. Thank you Alessandra, recommended!

Eventhough the weather wasn’t great, it was a wonderful experience to drive around the small villages with our guide Marco, hearing their story and ending it with a well executed and tasteful wine tasting. This is a great way for beginners to the Barolo area to experience the wine and history.

Very nice experience. We enjoyed the tasting and the truffle hunt very much.
