Don’t sweat it if you don’t follow the Italian narration in this video exposition of the magical little town that is Montelupo Albese–the pictures and video clips speak for themselves. A picturesque village on a hilltop between equally picturesque Rodello and Diano D’Alba, Montelupo has some of the best views of the eastern side of the hills that make up Barolo country. We love it there, and you’ll see why when you watch.
A lovely day spent in Treiso! Ca’ del Baio is a must-have stop on any Piemonte wine tour in our opinion. We’ll let the images speak for themselves, as words fail to capture the finesse and power inherent in the wines.
Forgive me, but these colors are too amazing to not share.
The hills of Piemonte make for a great backdrop for capturing sunsets bathing grapevines in amazing lighting conditions.
One of the most aesthetically pleasing things to do in Italy in October is lose yourself in a vineyard on a hillside where Italian folks are harvesting the last of the late harvest grapes; our friends at Fratelli Mossio were collecting their nebbiolo (the last grape harvested typically in Piemonte). This shot was our friend Valerio Mossio’s 92 year old mother collecting grapes, and I think it’s the most beautiful photo I’ve ever taken except for those of my children.
The sun setting over the Langhe hills, with Diano d’Alba as the back drop. Pretty hard to beat. Thanks to our friend Luca Aimasso for a great tasting and having the run of his lovely property.
