The Langhe Hills, surrounding the region of Alba, is one of the most celebrated quality wine-growing areas in the world. Located 100 miles from the Mediterranean Sea in southern Italy, it is occupied by family-owned wineries, which adds to the charm of Alba.
The cool breeze and sunny skies are ideal for growing grapes. The dry climate and fertile soil contribute to the impeccable tastes of the wine. The Celtic, who originally occupied the region, began growing wine grapes there 3500 years ago. The town of Alba, the producer of the world’s best Barbera grapes, plays an essential role as Barbera grapes are accountable for half of the red wine varietals made in Italy.
