Now, after the thirtieth edition of Portofino, we are ready for a new extraordinary adventure around the lands of Piedmont, its landscape being The World Nature UNESCO Heritage; we mean Langhe and Roero. We’ll take a break from the daily hectic life with much relax, gourmet moments at a highest level, plunging in the nature, living the history through art and traditions.
The departure is planned on Friday afternoon from Alessandria, where we are going to live an atmosphere of “other times”, a real party with many people, including pilots, much animation and the participants strictly wearing classical costumes.
The evening destination will be a well-known wine company of Canale d’Alba. We are going to taste the typical Piedmontese specialities accompanied by absolutely excellent wine, in a location of high prestige between wood barrels, winery dug by hand in stone, in a spectacular underground place with tiled walls made in “cotto”.
 We’ll stay at “Albergo dell’Agenzia”, antique Sabauda residence, that revives from a Slow Food idea. Placed in the middle of a marvelous neogothic complex, it is a big space, where there are the Hotel, the University of Culinary Science with its Academic Plates and The Wine Bank.
 Saturday morning is dedicated to culture. We’ll visit Racconigi Castle, one of the most important Royal Italian Residences in Europe, belonging to World UNESCO Heritage. The castle offers history and many stories through wonderfully preserved ornaments of different epochs and a myriad of furniture, heterogeneous expression of taste and styles.
In the afternoon we’ll visit the Wine Bank, one of the most important wine collections around the world; a collection of the best national labels selected by an experts commission that will let us try some of the most important wines in the world.
Back to Alessandria on Sunday, we’ll go to Ghilini Palace, an authentic piece of jewellery piedmontese baroque style, for lunch and prizegiving.
