Barolo village and its wine for a Wedding in Langhe Countryside
We get back to Langhe – Piedmont countryside once again to tell you about Emanuela and Andrea’s wedding day. Emanuela and Andrea are two nice Italian guys who decided to tie the knot in the very heart of Langhe: Barolo village.
This is the first time on our blog that we tell you about Barolo village. It is a lovely village located in the very heart of Langhe region.
It is a small yet very famous village close to La Morra, Barbaresco, Monforte d’Alba, Bra and Alba.
It can be reached easily from Turin and Milano Malpensa airports.
Very famous and precious Barolo wine takes its name from this village.
It is just here that Nebbiolo grapes are cultivated creating one of Italian greatest wine: Barolo wine.
The village is surely amazing. It is located on top of a vine hill with a stunning view over the vineyards.
In the very center of the village there is a wonderful Castle.
Barolo castle was built around 1200 with defense purposes. After some years it was purchased by Falletti Family of Barolo. The castle still has their name.
The castle today is town hall property and it can be a very special setting for legal civil ceremonies.
It could be a wonderful option for your legal civil ceremony in Langhe and Piemonte Countryside.
Inside the Castle you can also find WiMu famous Wine Museum.

Emanuela and Andrea opted for a Catholic ceremony in the church of Barolo which is located just side of Barolo Castle. You can see the entrance of the Castle in the pictures taken just outside the church.
Emanuela wore a wonderful wedding dress! She chose a short wedding dress! What a fresh, cute and original idea! She was absolutely stunning. Very natural and surely chic.
Same as her small wedding bouquet with white lysianthus and baby’s breath all around them.
It perfectly matched floral decorations in the church and flowers at the reception.
After a fun getting ready with family and friends Emanuela and Andrea reached the church.
Some friends reach it riding a Vespa. Emanuela reached on a vintage Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto, famous car of The Graduate movie with a young Dustin Hoffman.
A touching ceremony in the wonderful church of Barolo village and then a great sendoff! A lot of rice on newlyweds!
Rice is a special tradition on Italian weddings. It is a must that cannot miss as it brings luck to new husband and wife!
