A Wedding in Langhe Roero or Monferrato – Now featuring in UNESCO World Heritage List!
We are so proud to tell you about this latest news!
On June 22nd 2014 in Doha, Qatar Langhe, Monferrato and Roero areas of Piemonte become part of UNESCO world heritage list!
It is the 50th Italian location to be listed in the eminent list and we are really excited about it!
Italy is the country that has the biggest number of location listed.
Vineyards of Langhe Roero and Monferrato cover five wine-growing areas and they are some of the most important vines where amazing Italian wine come from: Barolo, Barbaresco, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Arneis, Bonarda, Moscato d’Alba and Asti Spumante.
Langhe Roero and Monferrato Landscape includes six wine areas and 29 towns for a total of 10,789 hectares (over 25,000 acres) of rolling hills. These include hills of Barolo, hills of Barbaresco, Nizza Monferrato for its Barbera production, Canelli for its Asti Spumante sparkling wine, and Monferrato for its particular underground wine cellars called infernots.
This wonderful country area of Piemonte is located in the Southern part of Piemonte between Torino and Ligurian Apennines close to Italian Riviera.
Vines have been grew since 5th century BC when Piemonte was the land where Etruscan and Celts use to trade. A long history for a great landscape.
During Roman empire famous emperors mentioned Piemonte as one of the most favourable area for growing vines in ancient Italy.
They were right, it is still so!
The official reason of the inscription is the following:
“An exceptional living testimony to the historical tradition of grape growing, winemaking processes, a rural economy and a social context based on the culture of wine”
