Located 7km from Alba, like the nearby Langhe, it is a famous tourist destination for food and wine and culture for the many castles and ancient villages that dot its small territory predominantly hilly. Developed along the slopes of the valley’s hills of Riddone’s stream, it is located in the central area of the “Comunità Collinare del Roero” Consortium.
The adjacent towns are Alba, Baldissero d’Alba, Guarene, Montaldo Roero, Monticello d’Alba, Piobesi d’Alba, Sommariva Perno and Vezza d’Alba.
Territory and countries
Located between two rivers, the Tanaro and the Bormida, Le Langhe are an alternation of hills cultivated – rather densely– with vineyards (in the Bassa Langa) and of valleys and small fortified borghi on their hilltops (Alta Langa).
The Roero, then, to the west of the Tanaro, was named after the family that governed a little fiefdom in the district for centuries.
As in the rest of Italy, the local villages and towns were long-contested divided and reapportioned again and again into various Medieval communes and feudal estates, thus explaining the numerous castles and defensive structures.
The Langhe and Roero, filled with historic testimonies, not only produce highly sought-out wines, but are also the site of distinguished white truffles (the White Truffle Fair of Alba is internationally-known).
Alba is one of the most important communities in these parts. Known as the city of truffles, wine and culinary delights, it was actually founded by the Ligures, an ancient Indo-European people.
Barolo is known above all for its beauty, and incarnates the essence of its most nobile of Piedmontese wines (what else, Barolo?). Tucked into the hills, Barolo was a Medieval borgo belonging to the Gonzagas and Savoias; it is dominated by the Castello Falletti, seat of the Comune’s Enoteca and of the Museum of Peasant Life, a collection of antique objects and instruments.
Founded in 1243, Cherasco, famous for its chocolate sweets, is one of the oldest town centers in the Langhe. Gorgeous Baroque and neoclassical palaces line its streets and piazzas.
Another must is the castle in Grinzane Cavour, residence of Camillo Benso, Count of Cavour; it is among the oldest in Langhe. Majestic terra-cotta architecture constructed in the 13th Century and re-structured in the 1600s, today it hosts the Regional Enoteca (Winery) and the Oenological Museum.
Bra, another famous Piedmontese locale, is surrounded by the wine and cheese-producing zones of Roero, amidst gently-rolling hills and prime cuisine. Bra’s Medieval name, Brayda, means cultivated terrain, indicating that Roero’s wine-producing vein goes way back.
A land rich in natural and historical beauty, the Roero is an unmissable destination not only for lovers of wine and food.
Here you can decide whether to spend a naturalistic holiday, perhaps along the paths of the ‘Rocche’ – deep chasms in the hills that can reach even hundreds of meters of altitude -, or to travel to discover fascinating ancient villages, such as Guarene, famous for its imposing Castle that stands out in the centre of the village, or like that of Govone, where the Royal Castle of Carlo Felice of the House of Savoy stands. Every village in this region has some peculiarities and historical gems to discover.
Leaving Roero wine-making, but remaining in the region, you could go to Bra, famous not only for the exceptional quality of its sausage, to be tasted mainly raw, but also for the presence of the headquarters of the Slow Food association.
For a strictly wine and food tourism you cannot miss a stop at the Enoteca Regionale (Regional Wine Cellar), in the centre of Canale, a showcase of local producers, always open for tastings and purchases, and home to a Michelin Star restaurant.
