Situated in the south Piedmont, Roero is the part of hills that lines the left side of Tanaro river, which separates it from Langhe area up to Torino and Asti districts.
The territory offers panoramas of carefully cultivated hillsides, following ancient land divisions punctuated with buildings that lend structure to the visual space: hilltop villages, castles and of course winecellars! Perhaps wine is always an essential element of our life and there are dozens of amazing wineries where you can taste great wines!
Speaking of wines the denomination DOCG, the most important in Italy, was given to great wines of this zone like the Roero ( 100% Nebbiolo) and the Roero Arneis ( 100% Arneis). Nebbiolo grapes, in the Roero, can be produced (a part with the name of Roero and denomination DOCG) also with the names of Nebbiolo d'Alba and Langhe Nebbiolo, with the denomination DOC, the second in importance in Italy.
From 2014 there is a huge additional motivation to visit this hills. This motivation is called Unesco: the International Association has inserted the vineyard landscapes of Langhe-Roero e Monferrato in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The most typical natural feature of Roero are the Rocche, wild and steep hills that go all through the area, like a deep wound in the ground. Created by an interesting erosion phenomenon, the rocche are like an open book about the geological history of Roero: a true eden for paleonthologists, bothanics and life scientists.
Nude sheer sides, sand aiguilles and pinnacles in all kinds of ocre colour come unexpectedly out of the dark green of the rich and shady trees.
Nowadays the Rocche represent an important turist attraction because of the beautiful landscapes and views that they offer. Trekking and cycling is a must on this hills!
Roero hills are better view from our ancient castels like the Royal Savoy Residence, an UNESCO heritage; the castle of Guarene, a baroque historic residence transformed into a luxury Hotel and the castle of Magliano Alfieri, hosting the michelin Paganini Restaurant.
