What you'll do

It's a 3 hours experience, starting with a guided walking tour of the city, and leading to an introduction on Piedmont wines. Asti is a wonderful medieval city, with a great history and a charming city centre. Beginning from the Cathedral, great example of Medieval Piedmont architectures, we'll walk through ancient streets, where wealthy merchants, knights and crusaders passed through. We'll reach, after little detours, San Secondo square, the heart of the city. Next part of this activity is then indoor (or, when better, outside, depending on the season). Sitting in a local wine bar, we'll learn how to taste and how to talk about 3 local wines, paired with a set of 3 little appetizers. I'll pick food that should be easy to find, or make, also back home. From the vineyard to the glass, we will follow the grape path, through the wine making process and different ageing methods, to get to how a wine is chosen, paired and presented. I always leave some take-home notes, together with tips&tricks. In the end, you will get the bases to make a good wine impression on your next guests!
