After city tour we will visit to Pio Cesare where since 1881, five generations of family have followed one another in guaranteeing and protecting continuity in the quality and style of Pio Cesare’s wines in its ancient cellars in the center of the town of Alba. Cesare Pio was a very successful entrepreneur and was inspired to produce a small and select quantity of wines from the hills of Barolo and Barbaresco for himself, his family, friends, and customers. Cesare Pio was dedicated to the terroir of the Piedmont region and to producing wines of the highest quality. During our wisit you will tast some kind of wines and know much about regional  wines and history of family. Next we will reach the Castle of Barolo where firstly visit to the wine museum. In a small town of the Langhe, the Barolo Castle has a centuries-long history and an international museum dedicated to the world of wine. There is perhaps no better place to have the WiMu - Wine Museum - than in the land where Barolo is made, to tell the story and history of such a complex product that comes from many civilizations and whose history goes back millenia. The first documentation of a fortification in the area is from the 10th century, traces of this ancient structure are still visible today in the great tower and the lower section of the eastern tower. Around 1250, the property was taken over by the Falletti family and profoundly transformed with the passing of the years. Beginning in 2010, the Falletti Castle has been the seat of the Wine Museum of Barolo. It is the work of François Confino, the planner of numerous museum displays throughout the world, including the National Cinema Museum in Turin. The Wine Museum includes a multisensory and interactive course that is entertaining and encourages active participation. The course leads through five floors of the Castle and enters the realms of science, sensory analysis, and poetry. It is a total immersion into the world of wine, a sensation that is reenforced by the final stopping point in the heart of the Falletti castle, the winery.Finally, after traversing the history of wine, you will arrive in the Regional Enoteca of Barolo in the old cellars of the family. It is a representation of the eleven Townships that produce Barolo, the "king of wines".
