My wife and I accidentally stumbled upon Carlo through a blog post looking for a Moscato tour for our 10 year wedding anniversary.. Thankfully we struck gold and was the highlight of our trip!!
Carlo met and picked us up at our Hotel in Santo Stefano Belbo, and we did a beautiful 7 hour tour around the Monferrato region squeezing in 2 tours and another quick tasting. The highlight of the trip was a visit to Mongioia Cellar which had scenic views over the hills and valleys and a rustic help yourself kitchen and the famous Moscato vending machine.
At no time did we feel rushed and it was such a lovely relaxed day with the opportunity to learn a lot about the region and it’s wine.
The other small point to note that Carlo keeps quiet is that not only has she been in the wine industry for decades, she is an official DOCG taster and commands absolute respect when she arrives at the wineries so you know you are getting first class treatment!
Thanks again Carlo for such a lovely day!!!
We had a full day tasting experience, one of the best of our Life. My husband and Me, had a 3 hours tasting (book in advance!) and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Moscato Wine were true to style and wonderful. We visit Mongioia Cellar. A very great winery that is to be experienced for those who enjoy authentic experiences and not tourist havens.
