It is in the vineyards of the Langhe that fine wines of world renown, such as Barolo, Nebbiolo and Barbaresco, are produced. Also famed for its white truffles (tartufi bianchi) and hazelnuts, and the cradle of the Slow Food movement, this verdant enclave to the south-east of Turin is a real paradise for food lovers. As you cross the vineyards, you will be treated to splendid panoramic views of a landscape dominated by castles. Take time to visit the region's different villages, heading from Alba to Cherasco via Barbaresco and Barolo.
