Have you ever been to the Roero region? I live in Piedmont and think that it's one of the most beautiful wine regions in the world. Here you can find many types of wine. There are 17 DOCG (Denominazione di origine controllata e garantita) - the Italian DOCG are 75 - and a lot of indigenous grapes. It's very hard not to find a wine to your taste. It's also hard to know all the wine regions of Piedmont well, exactly because the ampelographic patrimony is so huge. One of the ones that I knew little is the Roero. During Vinitaly 2018 I visited the stand of Cascina Chicco and three weeks ago took part in a tour of the cellar and the vineyards. You may have seen some pics and video on my Instagram Stories. I want to tell you more about the Roero region and my experience at Cascina Chicco. Are you ready? Let's start!
What was the last wine tour in which you took part? A wine tour is an outstanding experience. Personally, to understand the different realities around wine I prefer this approach than the fairs. Of course, a wine event such as Autochtona or Bottiglie Aperte allows you to discover several wines in just an hour. But the winemaker has only a few minutes to get you to understand his winery, his vineyards, his wine philosophy and his wines. It's a hard task! If you take part in a wine tour, you can really immerse yourself in the experience in real time and not just in your mind. What do you think about this? On Saturday, 16th of December I'll take part in the first Luxury Day Tour organized by The Grand Wine Tour. I'm really excited about this opportunity!
Have you ever visited Piedmont? Do you know the Monferrato area? Piedmont is a wonderful region in Italy. I’m not saying this just because I live here. All the people who have visited this region have been pleasantly surprised! In Piedmont, you can find plains, hills and mountains. I know, if we also had the sea, the picture would be complete. But to compensate for it, we have the best wines in the whole world. Recently, I took part in a press trip with other bloggers and journalists to discover the "unknown" Monferrato. It's the right destination for all the wine, food, wellness and relaxation lovers. And also a welcome break from writing another tutorial which is very important! Now let me tell you more about my press trip. Are you ready? Let's start!
Do you like to visit wineries? Have you ever taken part in wine events? I have already published some posts about wine events, as Mercato dei vini FIVI or Merano WineFestival.

So I inform you about Today opening of my YouTube channel, in which I'll upload my wine tours and many other topics. I suggest you to click on "subscribe" to stay always up-to-date on my next videos.
