Description

Savor all the beauty and pleasures of the Piedmont, considered Italy's greatest single wine region, on this unforgettable seven-day bicycle tour, completely updated for 2015. Our route traverses the region's most important and distinct vineyard centers of Gavi, Acqui Terme, Alba, and lower Monferrato. We'll be fortified on our journey by sumptuous meals pairing great wines with delightfully complementary Piemontese cuisine, a blend of Northern Italian and French influences, with truffles and mushrooms as seasonal key players. In the fall, the cycling tour may coincide with the 'Fiere del Tartufo,' the International Truffle Fair, which attracts gourmands and top chefs to the fairytale towns of Alba, Moncalvo and Acqui Terme. Here we savor the delicacies produced by local culinary artisans and experience the enchantment of the Tartufo Bianco, the revered white truffle!
