Want to do an Italian winery tour, particularly in Piedmont? Contact me at the bottom of this page and I will be happy to assist you in any way I can.
If you would prefer to do your own Italian winery tour then make sure the Piedmont region is included, it is Italy's most beautiful wine region with some of the best wines in the world. Make sure too that you visit the gorgeous family-run Brangero vineyard.
Brangero is situated on a magnificent hilltop with breathtaking views of the rolling hills of the Langhe and the nearby medieval town of Diano d'Alba. The estate, like so many in the Langhe, is a family run business.
The terroir is perfect for producing many of the wines the Langhe is most famous for. Well known international names like Dolcetto di Diano d'Alba, Barbera d'Alba and Nebbiolo d'Alba are all produced by the Brangero winery.
A visit here is really an experience and if you are lucky the energetic, enthusiastic and very passionate Marco Brangero, who now runs the estate for his father, will share with you some of his delicious salumi and local cheeses in addition to the top-quality wines.
Marco has been instrumental in introducing new techniques to the great tradition he has inherited from his father and the already excellent wines are now reaching even greater heights.
Visits are free, and they are open every day of the week, on appointment. If you do want to visit Brangero please contact me at the bottom of the page and I will be happy to set it up for you.
