Langhe Hills

Langhe Hills

The Langa is a vast hilly area covered by quality vineyards (Bassa Langa) and pastures and hazelnut groves (Alta Langa). The roads we propose connect the villages famous for the crus of red wines that are produced here. Never very long climbs and descents on little-traffic roads connect villages with castles that recall the medieval origins of the area. The hills form a basin with the city of Alba in the centre, famous for the white truffle fair.

Dining in the great Italian “Trattoria”
