Imagine drinking some of Italy’s most prestigious wines whilst gazing out towards UNESCO World heritage landscapes. Borgo Barolo, in the heart of the Piedmont wine region, offers high-end accommodation and exceptional services in a picture-postcard setting surrounded by award-winning vineyards and hazelnut groves.

Ideal for a family reunion or special holiday with wine and food-loving friends, this stunning abode has sixteen bedrooms across four beautiful villas, each one perfectly positioned around the swimming pool with incredible views. Elegantly designed interiors are met with state-of-the-art facilities from the professionally equipped kitchen and temperature-controlled wine cabinet to fast Wi-Fi and a Sonos music system. Each villa features its own al-fresco dining area with an outdoor kitchen, grill and herb garden for idyllic evening meals as you drink world-class Barolo or Barberesco from local wineries.

A cook can be organised to create candle-lit feasts using some of the gastronomic delights of the region, paired with the very best wines, or dine in a more relaxed setting with a poolside party as the chef lights up the barbecue. Farmer market visits with a specialised guide, private truffle hunting and cookery classes can also be arranged as can a wealth of other unique experiences tailored to your individual requests and style, including personalised wine itineraries to make the most of this remarkable region.

Whether its picnics in the vineyards or dining in Michelin starred restaurants close by, you will soon discover why this region is so famed for its cuisine as well as wine. Head to Alba, only 9km away, to try the famous white truffles or come across rustic restaurants in enchanting medieval villages serving culinary treats such as rich tajarin pasta or Piemontese beef carpaccio. Eat well in a variety of local osterie and trattorie, including in the local village just 2km away, and pick up all sorts of regional produce at Farmer’s markets dotted across local villages and towns.

Whether experiencing the wine harvest and truffle fairs of the autumn, snuggling up by the cosy fire in the winter, sampling the new wines amongst the vibrant colours of spring or lazing by the swimming pool in the summer, Borgo Barolo is a special place where you will be incredibly well looked after at all times of year.

In the heart of one of Italy’s most famous wine regions, Borgo Barolo is perfectly positioned for you to be able to taste some of the fine wines of Piedmont, an area which has recently acquired UNESCO World Heritage status.

Borgo Barolo enjoys a rural setting amongst vineyards and hazelnut groves, just 9km from the beautiful town of Alba. Wander through the estate’s vineyards surrounding the villas, owned by a prestigious winery, and admire the incredible landscapes around you. The owner’s winery, located around a 45-minute drive away, is one of the few in Piedmont that has exclusive access to older vintages.

The local hilltop village, around 2km away (about 20-30 minutes walk), has a handful of places to eat or drink whilst another nearby village, a little further by car, has amenities such as a grocery store and pharmacy. Head to La Morra (6km) on a Monday morning to experience its authentic market selling local fruit and vegetables as well as cheese, meat and fish. Look out for other local Farmer’s markets in Gallo (6km), Alba (9km) and Bra (11km).

Of course, one of the main reasons that visitors are drawn to this part of northern Italy is for the wine-tasting – after all, this area produces the highest number of DOCG wines (the highest quality in Italian law) in all of the country. The owners can help organise vineyard visits whether you are looking to explore the Langhe, home to the world-famous Barbaresco and Barolo labels, or some of the lesser-known wine-makers around Roero or Monferrato. Most wineries request an appointment so ensure you book in advance if you have any specific producers you would like to visit. Customised tours can also be arranged to include truffle hunting, cooking classes and lunches amongst other activities.

The cuisine of this region is also to be celebrated from marinated veal and Piemontese beef carpaccio to rich tajarin pasta, delicious agnolotti and the famous white truffles from Alba. Hazelnuts are also a local speciality and there are some amazing regional cheeses to pick up from nearby Farmer’s markets. Alba (9km) is known to be the gastronomy capital of this region and there are increasing numbers of Michelin starred restaurants appearing in the town itself and surrounding villages.

It’s a relaxed way of life in Piedmont – even the slow-cooking movement originated here. Expect shops to close in the early afternoon, a great time to cycle through the surrounding countryside, finding a perfect spot for a picnic and discover beautiful hikes. Visit idyllic local villages, admire historic castles and fascinating local museums, followed of course by amazing meals accompanied by some of the best wines in the world.

Experience a change of pace in Turin (69km), a splendid city which was once the capital of Italy and has been transformed since hosting the 2006 Winter Olympics. It's now known for its vibrant cultural scene as well as historic palaces, museums and its superb riverside setting. Winter-sport enthusiasts also love its close proximity to the Alps.

The landscapes of the Piedmont region offer many wonderful family walks, cycle rides and horse-riding.

As well as exploring idyllic hilltop villages and historic castles, some local towns are home to interesting museums such as the magical Museo della Magia in Cherasco (12km) and the enchanting Museo del Giocattolo in Bra (12km), where you can admire all sorts of Italian toys from over the years.

Alba is also a lovely place to spend time – enjoy a leisurely lunch followed by a gelato as you wander along the historic lanes soaking up the charming atmosphere. Head to the Tanaro riverfront for walks and cycle rides. If staying in October then look out for the Palio degli Asini, the donkey race, at the beginning of the International White Truffle Fair.

On hot summer days, if you feel like a change of scene then Cupole Lido is a popular water park with all sorts of slides and swimming pools.

Turin is also an hour away with lots of attractions for all ages from museums and historic sights to fantastic parks and playgrounds. Football fans can pre-book tours of the Allianz stadium, home to Juventus FC whilst animal lovers can head south of the city to Zoom, an amusement park and zoo.

Event information

Gaze out to dreamy landscapes of vineyards, hazelnut groves and picturesque villages perched on rolling hills as you enjoy some of Italy’s most prestigious wines and exquisite cuisine on your special day in this extraordinary region.

Celebrate with an intimate group of family and friends at Borgo Barolo where you will experience the most wonderful hospitality and professional service. Feast on the covered rustic patio, beautifully prepared for your reception and enjoy the fine food that Piedmont is so famous for from tajarin pasta and beef carpaccio to the amazing white truffles of Alba.

For larger events, consider hosting your event at the estate’s wine lounge and gallery, around a 45-minute drive from Borgo Barolo, an indoor venue perfect for any time of year and home to many of the owner’s award winning Barbaresco and Barolo labels.

Wedding Reception
At Borgo Barolo, two of the houses have gorgeous terraces with space to set up an intimate reception - Villa Nebbiolo has room for up to 44 people on its open terrace whilst Villa Barbaresco has a covered patio for up to 30 people to be seated (the best option for cooler months or poor weather – heating lamps are also recommended).

There is space for dancing either outside or on Villa Barbaresco’s patio and a marquee can also be arranged if needed. Guests can celebrate with live music until midnight – if you wish to continue partying after this time this will need to be agreed in advance. In all instances, the maximum number of people at a Borgo Barolo reception, including the wedding couple, would be 44.

Alternatively, events can also be held at the owner’s wine lounge and gallery at the estate’s winery around a 45-minute drive away – this is a very flexible indoor space for up to 100 people (both seated or dancing) with live music permitted until midnight (celebrations after this time are again on request).

Wedding Ceremony
With permission from the local village’s commune, a ceremony may be possible either at Borgo Barolo, in the local village or at a larger church in nearby Alba, around a 10-minute drive away.

If hosting your event at the larger wine lounge and gallery then you can request for the ceremony to be held there or alternatively there are local churches within a very short drive.

In both cases an English-speaking celebrant can be provided. If you prefer a priest then this will need to be requested.

Where to Stay
Borgo Barolo sleeps up to 31 guests whilst there is other accommodation in the local area including hotels and agriturismi. Local transportation can be arranged in advance.

If celebrating at the wine lounge and gallery, transfers can be arranged back to Borgo Barolo (around a 45-minute drive away) plus there are numerous hotels in that area for other guests.

Wedding Planning

You may use Borgo Barolo’s wedding planner or you may bring your own who can then cooperate with the property manager. The same applies if booking the wine lounge and gallery.

Catering
Borgo Barolo can help you arrange caterers using their contacts or you may arrange your own.

The corkage fee depends on the caterer - if you choose to use the estate’s wines then there is no corkage fee at either venue.

Other Information
Weddings can usually take place from February to December. January is also possible on request.

The owners and property manager try to be as flexible as possible when it comes to suppliers and arrangements.

Reviews

  • On recommande vivement!

    Created on 05/11/2020

    Villa au milieu des vignes a 15 min de Alba. Très belle, propre, chaleureuse et classe, décorée avec goût avec de très beaux matériaux. Cuisine complètement équipée, une cave à vin magnifique et la maîtresse de maison Katariina est top. Elle nous a rempli de petites attentions et toujours disponible. On recommande vivement!!!!

  • The most magical experience

    Created on 05/11/2020

    Where do we even begin. They hosted our wedding 2 weeks ago, and it was the most magical experience we could have ever imagined. We had 45 people come and 34 of which stayed at the villas, it housed 34 extremely comfortably and could have probably hosted another 2-3 couples without issue. The villas are stunning, each with its own character and distinction.

    In addition to the beauty of the villas, the staff is out of this world. They catered to our every need and delivered on the easiest, most organized wedding we could have ever hoped for.

    I need to give a special shoutout to Katariina, she is absolutely the best. She was around 24/7 during the event and during the months leading up to the event. She went above and beyond and we will never forget it. We can’t wait to go back and see her and the villas again!!

  • A magical place

    Created on 05/11/2020

    A magical place to spend time with good friends during the truffle and wine festival in Alba! The villas are modern, spacious, beautifully appointed and the chefs kitchen is fantastic! The truffle hunt on the property was so much fun with Gianni! Our cooking class with Chef was a master class in making pasta and seafood risotto!
    Our Concierge, Katariina, is first rate and was always there for us. Every attention to detail was delivered and then some! She arranged for all of our activities for the festival as well as the private guide and tours to several amazing wineries! And her selection of superb restaurants that she made reservations for (and changed multiple times) to accommodate us were outstanding!!! Piedmont region of Italy must be on your “bucket list”! Grazie Mille to all.

  • Truly enjoyed our stay

    Created on 05/11/2020

    We truly enjoyed our stay here. The space surpassed any (already high) expectations we might have had. The villa itself was amazing and well stocked. We loved having the SONOS system, fire pits and the full-professional kitchen! In fact, I think we were all surprised that we decided to stay in our villa for dinner every evening! Your help (and the rest of the staff) was great and only helped to make our stay even better! Thanks for all the special help to make this a great birthday for me! :) We all had a terrific and relaxing time.

    And with your wonderful assistance, we LOVED all of our adventures that we booked through you. The E-bikes, cooking school and chef on-site!

    Overall, we cannot recommend your villas any more…and we hope to be back sometime in the future!
