Piedmont –the land at the foot of the mountain. The gently rolling landscape is pearled with small medieval villages, castles and fortresses. The Alps in the north reach impressive heights and everywhere wide-ranging vineyards. Here you find some of of Italy’s, not to say the world's best wines, with Barolo, the king of wine, wine of kings, at the top of the throne.
During our visit to Piedmont we stay in an agriturismo, a farmhouse, enjoying local flavors in the real slow-food spirit. It was here that the famous "resistance movement" started on small-scale family farms with traditional farming methods.
You will meet a lot of charming personalities; truffle hunters and their dogs, wine farmers, bakers and cheesemakers. Our philosophy at TheAlps is completely in line with this type of tourism and we are pleased that there still are enthusiasts, who like us who put passion before expansion.
Marta and Linnea from TheAlps and our sommelier Ilenia will be joining you on this tour.
