The wine-growing landscape of Langhe-Roero and Monferrato has been recognised by Unesco as an integral part of the World Heritage Site.
Italy’s 50th site, the world’s most famous wine-growing hills gained UNESCO designation in 2014 as a cultural landscape, i.e. the result of the combined action of man and nature.
The skilful work and constant refinement of cultivation techniques for the Nebbiolo, Moscato Bianco and Barbera vines have led to extraordinary results that are expressed in the splendour of a unique landscape.
Langhe and Roero consolidate the image of an area with a strong tourist appeal, capable of attracting foreign markets in particular and drawing significant flows. For several years now, the wine and food product has been supported by a diversified tourist offer: culture, art, nature, outdoor activities.
