About Langhe Region

A charming hilly area near the city of Cuneo, Piedmont, Italy, Langhe is famous all over the world for its wide range of white and red wines. Some of the most prestigious wines produced here are the red Barolo and the white Chardonnay.

About Langhe DOC Wines: The white variety such as the Arneis, the Chardonnay and the Favorita are straw-like colored with fresh and delicate bouquets. Dry and balanced wines, they have mouth filling and flavorsome taste with hints of citrus fruit and aromatic herbs. The red ones, such as Dolcetto, Nebbiolo and Fresia are of intense, elegant ruby red color. Very balanced wines as well, they are full-bodied and more vivacious than the whites. With a velvety and harmonious taste, the bouquets are intense and persistent, with hints of blackcurrants and violets.

When it’s best to drink them? A year for the whites, 2-3 years for the reds.

Pairings for Langhe White DOC Wines: Langhe DOC white wines go really well with risotto and soft cheeses. The red ones are ideal with cut cold, boiled beef and red meat in general.

You’ve been asking…

What's the best way to get around the Langhe area?

Langhe is in northern Italy, so the two closest airports are Turin and Genoa airports. From the airport, you need to travel to Cuneo, which can be done by train or car. You'll want to take the A6 highway if you're driving from Turin or the A10 highway from Genoa.

If you arrive at Cuneo by train, take a bus to the Langhe area. You will probably want to rent a car to navigate better. In larger towns, you can get around by riding buses or trains without a problem. However, the Langhe area is less populous, so buses often require multiple transfers and may not go everywhere you plan to visit.
