Breathtaking landscapes filled with castles and churches, picturesque hilltop villages and, best of all, vineyards. This is the Langhe, an area in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy that produces some of the world’s greatest wines.
A Wine Atlas of the Langhe is the result of over ten years of research into the vineyards, the wines and the history of this fascinating part of the world, including the men and women who have made the wines of the Langhe famous. The book explores the unique features of topography, soils, and climate that have enabled Barolo and Barbaresco to become recognized as two of the world’s most exclusive and highly prized wines. Aerial photography shows the beauty of the fifteen municipalities profiled in the book.
