The aim of this one-day private guided trip is to enjoy local food and fine wine, and to taste chocolate on a walking and motor tour of the region of Roero – -close to the Langhe area and a one-hour drive from Turin. This region inspired the international Slowfood movement, whose advocates link the pleasure of good food with a commitment to community and the environment, promoting good, healthy and fairly produced food.
The journey will start early in the morning with a drive from your hotel to the city of Bra, a little baroque town where the movement started that hosts an important cheese fair every other year. Then you’ll be taken to Pollenzo, an old roman settlement that is now home to the one and only Italian Unversita’ del Gusto (culinary university). We’ll stop at the adjoining wine bank for a wine tasting. After lunch at a restaurant specializing in local food, we’ll stroll through Cherasco, an historic town situated on a terrace with a breathtaking view of the Alps range. There we’ll pay a visit to a renowned chocolate maker to sample his creations.
