Thanks to our collaboration with Incoming Experience, the sixth edition of Turin Epicurean Capital is extended and will last 6 days instead of our usual 3.
In June 2019, our guests get the opportunity to visit the beating heart of Piedmont: the Langhe wine district and a bit of Roero too 😉
Top Italian wine producing region and white truffle hub of the world, within Piemonte there are many wine districts and traditional food production areas; however only 3 made it to the Unesco World Heritage Site list: Langhe, Roero and Monferrato.
Despite being close to each other, their geographical and geological conformations are rather different as you eye and palate can intuitively tell you.
These territories are made of tiny medieval hamlets perched on the top of vineyard covered hills.
If Monferrato counts more castles than in the Loire Valley, in France, the Langhe area comprised between Alba and Asti has the highest concentration of Michelin starred restaurants in the whole world!
And Roero is the Piedmont unique fruit and vegetable garden thanks to its many family owned farms, orchards and hazelnut groves 😋

Despite its very long industrial tradition, like Lady Gaga and Rihanna, Turin has known how to change and renovate herself along the years. Many areas of the city have changed completely in the last 30 years, starting from downtown, the Lingotto area where you can now visit Eataly - the very first one in the world! - and the Fiat factory turned into a shopping mall, to Piazza Risorgimento in the Campidoglio neighborhood.
We often describe Turin like the Italian MoTown thanks to the Fiat, but also as the Italian Philly because of its elegant 18th century architecture and most definitely, like the Italian Manhattan given the Roman grid our city was built on. Like many cities around the world though, Turin has also many artsy projects and neighborhoods that keep outside of the tourists' paths.
