Nebbiolo Nirvana Tour

We are delighted to announce a food & wine tour of Piedmont with none other than Mr Nebbiolo – Gary Walsh as co-host.

This is an amazing opportunity to tour the Langhe region with Australia’s pre-eminent writer on Piedmont wines and get to understand the terroir. 

There will be structured tastings at Giuseppe Mascarello, Vietti, Monchiero, Podere Ruggeri Corsini, Cavallotto, Paitin, Massolino, Musso and Produttori (meeting & tasting with Aldo Vacca).

Get to taste barrel samples (sorry Gary botti samples!) of unfinished Barolo & Barbaresco from the spectacular 2015 and 2016 vintages. The tour has a clear emphasis on traditional producers.

It won’t be all about wines, as we will take you to some of our favourite dining traps throughout the region – Piedmont is a gastronomic hotspot in Italy.

You will also see the picturesque and magnificent countryside of the Langhe, including guided walks through legendary vineyards like Rocche di Castiglione, Rabaja, Monprivato and others.

Most meals will be included, however being based in Alba there’s also some time for you wander around on foot and discover a meal or two of your own.

We will also take you to the best Enotecas in the area for buying wines – they can all arrange shipping back to Australia.

All accommodation is included at the lovely and very central Hotel Calissano in Alba.

You’ll join us for aperitivo in Neive at the top of the town and see why we do this every trip without fail.

We’ll have dinner high up in La Morra, where the panoramic views of the broader Langhe are spectacular.

This is a tour suitable for a Nebbiolo novice, part timer or aficionado.  There will be something in this for all levels of wine knowledge of the area.

The tour runs from late April to early May, places are very limited and please email us with your expressions of interest.  At which point we can fill you in with more information.
