Full description

Wineand art are the ingredients of this wine-cultural experience!

In the company of a guide, you will visit the winery and walk among the rows of vines in Monforte d'Alba. You will then go on to explore the Perno Castle, once the residence of the publisher Giulio Einaudi and today the Cultural Association of Contemporary Arts.

And it is precisely in the historic library that a tasting of the most representative wines of the Langhe will take place, ending with a toast!

What we will do

The appointment is at the selected time at the Castello di Perno Winery in Castelletto, in the municipality of Monforte d'Alba (CN). We will be welcomed by the guide who will accompany us on this wine and art experience!

Once all the participants have gathered, and after an initial presentation, the visit to the winery will begin: we will walk through the winemaking rooms and the characteristic barrel cellar, delving into production thanks to the guide's stories. We will then reach the vineyard for a walk through the rows of vines, before returning to our vehicles and heading for the next location.

We will then follow the guide who, after a few minutes' transfer, will welcome us to our destination: Perno Castle, the residence of the famous Turin publisher Giulio Einaudi and today the Cultural Association of Contemporary Arts. We will visit the rooms on the first floor, amidst priceless relics and panoramic views of the Langhe hills.

We will then enter the Sala Einaudiana, home of the historic library where the table at which Primo Levi, Italo Calvino, Cesare Pavese and other illustrious names on the Italian cultural scene sat. It is precisely in this environment that we will also sit for the wine tasting , which will include the following four glasses accompanied by a mixed platter of cold meats and cheeses:

  • Langhe Nascetta DOC
  • Barbera d'Asti DOCG
  • Langhe Nebbiolo DOC
  • Barolo DOCG

The experience will last a total of 3 hours.
