Breakfast in hotel and check out.
Departure to La Morra for a photo stop from the panoramic terrace.
Transfer to Barolo for a guided tour with entrance to WIMU.
WIMU is the most innovative wine museum in Italy and one of the most important in the world. We are in the Barolo, famous in the world for its wine and in a castle with a thousand-year history.
The tour is an immersion in the culture of wine: the suggestion of delving into its myths corresponds to the physical descent from the panoramic terrace to the cellars of the castle, home to the Regional Barolo wine shop.
After the visit you will go to Marchesi di Barolo, historical cellars located in the building overlooking the castle of Marquis Falletti.
The cellars were built at the beginning of the 19th century for a very specific purpose: to make wine from Nebbiolo, protected from the early autumn cold. In this way the Marchesi di Barolo created a stable wine, with a great structure, suitable for ageing. The wine that bears the name of our town and expresses its extraordinary richness: Barolo.
Five historic casks of the time – the “Botti della Marchesa” – are still used today, after painstaking restoration, for the maturation and refinement of precious wines. A heritage of humanity and the history of taste preserved under the hills of the “Langa del Barolo”, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The cellars are also home to a private collection of over 30,000 bottles of Barolo, ranging from rare 19th-century vintages to more recent ones, preserved in the very place where they were born.
Guided tour of the beautiful cellar (45 minutes) and after that, lunch in “La Foresteria” above the cellars.
