TOUR of the Lower Piedmont

FROM BAROLO TO CASTELMAGNO

> Just think of the taste of fresh milk, the color of straw, and a minimum 2-month wait: this is how the Castelmagno DOP is produced. The ancient recipe is kept by the Val Grana farmers, in the south of Piedmont: that is the place we want to take you to listen to their stories and to understand how hard their job can be, but also to share (and taste!) the result of their efforts. Now just sip a glass of Barolo and lose yourself among the beauty of the Langhe hills. And here is our recipe for a two-day trip between Turin and the lower Piedmont.
