Wine shop had interesting selection with lots of local food options also. Kids in the shop wanted chocolate and nuts options. 360° views make for great photos. Location is a little out of the way - you need a car to visit.

This is a prominent castle/estate in the piedmont region. Spectacular views of the surrounding region. The castle is well preserved and the displays are informative and entertaining. A great way to become acquainted with the wines, food and festivals of the area!

The place is so amazing, you can have the view of the langhe, plus the castle held the auction for truffles, great wine and you can also have a tour in the rooms of the castle for a low cost.
