Beginning the Piemontese Adventure

Standard

I’ve been waiting to experience this corner of Piemonte for a long time – and, so far, it is not disappointing! We just arrived today into this spectacular region after spending some wonderful time on the French Riviera and Provence! Our home base for visiting this area is the Cascina Barac – a beautiful agriturismo near Alba – completely immersed in vineyards!

For tonight’s dinner, we took a 1 km walk through the vineyards. We found out later that wild boar and fox like to hang out in the vineyards….it’s a good thing we didn’t have any walking companions!

  1. Glad you are having fun! And I hope the weather behaves while you’re here. For us it isn’t all roses and sunshine, but at least we aren’t boiling like those in central and southern Italy. 40°C – ouch!
