Trekking between wines and castles
This trek offering by Due Ruote nel Vento will give you the opportunity to discover the many landscapes of the Langhe and visit some of the most beautiful and characteristic towns of the area. The first part of the journey takes place almost entirely through the vineyards that have made the region famous all over the world; here Barolo wine is the protagonist, and the rows of Nebbiolo grapes extend as far as the eye can see. On the tops of the hills you’ll find villages and castles that invite you to linger to enjoy a good glass of wine and an invigorating meal. The second part of the trip will take you instead in the wildest part of the region, the high Langa, in which the protagonist is the hazelnut; forests, deep valleys and hazelnut trees punctuate the journey up to Cortemilia, the final destination of your holiday.
