After France, Napa Valley and Spain I couldn't but continue in Italy my wine odyssey. Looking for deals on the internet for a food and wine tour combining both Tuscany and Piedmont , I came across WinePassion Operator website. They couldn't do a package that included also the Tuscany (I have arranged that part by myself, booking individual wineries and cellar visits), but the tour in Langhe was fabulous and Fabio a wonderful guide. I slept in small farms that look out from the books of fairy tales: vintage homes on hilltops, surrounded by vineyards that expand beyond the horizon. The highlight of my trip was a visit to the cellars of Tenuta Fontanafredda, built by the King of Italy. Awesome and huge, followed by a tasting of legendary Barolo wines. I can only recommend 'em to anyone visiting Piedmont wine country.
