Hilly expanses as far as the eye can see, ancient villages, Romanesque churches, perched medieval castles, a succession of gentle slopes planted with vines whose rows draw rigorous geometries: these are the magnificent scenarios of the Langhe region, a UNESCO-World Heritage Site.
Its capital, the city of Alba, a UNESCO creative city for gastronomy, is a treasure trove of fine products.
