My husband gave me a trip to Italy for our anniversary and we didn’t miss a fantastic wine tour. We spent a day among the cellars of Monferrato to really taste many Ruchè wines from different producers and we bought several bottles. We found a sunny day and we were able to walk among the vineyards and it was wonderful, they explained to us how the grapes are grown, how they are harvested and then they explained to us how they are turned into wine. The owners were really nice and together with the wine they offered us local cheeses and salamis that were really delicious. We had lunch in a winery-farm where we ate the main traditional dishes. Fantastic!
