Langhe, Italy, tourist information
Welcome to Piedmont region, in Northwest Italy.
In 2014 the major wine-producing area of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato, became a UNESCO World Heritage Site featuring a 1,079-square mile “core zone”;
with 29 municipalities and a 7,600-square mile surrounding “buffer zone” with 82 municipalities.
Langhe, Roero and Monferrato region is one of the five official statistical regions of Italy.
A unique territory in the world outline, in which the sudden overlap of ridges (in the Langhe) or softer (in the Monferrato),
gives rise to recurrent changes of the observer’s point of view, resulting in a variety and visual breadth,
as well as a continuous intervisibility between urban centers, hills and vertical architectural structures formed by castle towers, bell towers and facades of Baroque churches.
In addition to this, the different types of vine variety grown in the area, contribute to the perceptive richness, as leaves create a striking color effect, especially in autumn:
it goes, for example, from shades of yellow golden muscat, to thebright red of Barbera and finally to the pomace of Dolcetto.
