Day 1 to Day 8

Wine Lovers Travel invites Pelletiere Estate wine club members for an exclusive guided tour of Italy’s iconic Piemonte (or Piedmont) wine region. This is the home of the Nebbiolo grape, the noblest son of this land and a much beloved Pelletiere varietal as well. Nebbiolo has a red grape berry chosen as its Italian residence in the hills of Piedmont, where it is produced into some of the best red wines in the world. There are three distinct areas, Barolo, Barbaresco, and Roero, all lying in a radius of 15 km from the town of Alba. We will visit all three of these areas on this extraordinary journey designed exclusively for Pelletiere Estate.
