Biking Itineraries

This route gives every amateur cyclist the opportunity to breathe the true spirit of the Lower Langa- to nourish your eyes with breathtaking views, and tap the link between man and land.

The constants of the path will be the vineyards and the magnificent villas that dominate the landscape and hills, both the result of the hard work and ingenuity of generations of inhabitants of this area which is blessed with natural beauty and a unique microclimate.

The tour starts at the Ca d' Olga among the hazelnut groves and stops first in La Morra, the center of the nebbiolo grape production area and home to the highest scenic panorama which looks down upon Barolo (don't miss the look out point!).  Barolo is the town that gives its name to the internationally renowned wine and will charm you with its elegance of its village and the imposing profile of the castle (now the headquarters of the Enoteca Regionale del Barolo, and the future of the wine museum).

Do not miss the opportunity of a pleasant tasting and a visit to the Corkscrew Museum (one of the most important museums in the world of this issue). With vineyards accompanying you as far as the eye can see, you'll eventually reach the village of Monforte d'Alba. The town has an extraordinary historical center dating from the year one thousand and an amphitheater nothing short of impressive. This is a real jewel of the Langa.

Letting yourself be guided by the road as you head down to Dogliani and the production area of Dogliani DOCG (make sure to leave some time to visit the charming village center featuring many buildings in neo-Gothic style), where you can regroup before the ascent (height difference of 430 meters) to the ideal boundary of this part of territory in the town of Serravalle Langhe.

The itinerary continues touching the Alta Langa and its typical crops of hazelnuts to return to the undisputed realm of the vineyard in Sinio, a village dominated by the homonymous castello.  Continue on towards Serralunga d'Alba and its castle, mandatory for any visitor interested in the history of these hills, and eventually come to Grinzane Cavour. The lively village is always a been a central point of the wine making culture as well as a source of innovations in history.

Do not miss a visit to the Castle of Grinzane, where the Count Camillo Benso lived for a long time.  This castle is now the scene of the annual International Auction of the White Truffle, and headquarters of an important ethnographic and regional wine museum. Once rested, we will go to Verduno (they have a great lookout point and home to the famous wine "Verduno Pelaverga").  The trail ends by taking the short trip back to Ca' d'Olga where you can't  refuse a good dinner in our restaurant! This is a highly scenic route.
