The enoteca ‘Vignaioli Piemontesi’ stands in Castagnito, at the cross of the road coming from Barbaresco (4 km) with the road from Alba to Asti. Though this place is a part of Castagnito, it is in the valley, far from the city's heart, on top of the hills. Actually, it is much closer to Barbaresco.
The signs on its front say : Vini e spumanti, prodotti di Langa, confezioni regalo, grappe, tartuffi, salumi e formaggi, torroni e dolci, specialita. (Wines and sparkling wines, spirits truffles, sausages and cheese, torroni [kind of local nougat] and sweets, specials).
It is open from 9:30 to 19:00, Monday through Saturday and 9:30-12:00 and 15:00 to 19:00 on Sundays. At first it might look strange that there is neither parking lot not entrance but the entrance (and the parking) are at the rear.
What to buy: It is run by the wine producers of the Langhe and well kept. The inside is wide, with cute little woodden carts (second photo). I strongly recommand that you have a look and buy there everything that you want to take home, better than in the shops in Asti or Alba.
