Walking & Wine

Walking & Wine Overview

If you're a wine lover, but also not one to sit still for too long, then this is the tour for you. With a combination of hiking in hilly countryside and wine-tasting at local vineyards, you can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Combine two of the world’s most noble past times; walking & wine tasting. This ‘best of both worlds’ itinerary, will enable you to soak up the beautiful scenery of the UNESCO Langhe hills, whilst ensuring that you pause and reflect over a glass of award-winning wine. This northern gem of Italy is a haven for walkers of all abilities. And, after a long day traversing the countryside and marvelling at the plethora of vineyards, settle down for an education in wine. You’ll have the opportunity to sample some of the region’s most iconic wines – the famous reds of Barolo and Barbaresco and more recently the white Arneis. Enjoy the idyllic vineyard landscapes of Piedmont, which has somehow managed to avoid the swarms of tourists that other Italian wine regions encounter. By foot, you will learn all about the region's heritage, flora and fauna and also have the chance to look around rural villages and crumbling medieval castles. Don't forget your camera!
