Morning : Meeting with an In-Piemonte English-speaking guide and driver. Transfer to Canelli , the capital of Muscat wine and birthplace of the first Sparkling wine, the Italian Spumante. Guided tour through an elegant, historic winery part of the famous group of “wine cathedrals”. These wineries are carved out of rock at a depth of 20 meters, and have been selected for nomination to the Unesco World Heritage List. Brut and Spumante wine tasting . Traveling further south we reach a beautiful green area dominated by forests and pastures where we visit an artisan producer of goat cheese. Light lunch with tasting of local cheeses and specialties (meats, hazelnut delicacies)
Afternoon: Visit a WWF oasis, a stretch of uncontaminated, wild nature within a forest rich in uncommon plants and flowers. Here meet a small, family-run organic certified wine producer. Walk through the ancient vineyards and tasting of Passito (sweet “meditation” wine made from Muscat grapes).
Return to accommodation and end of In-Piemonte services.
