“tour of barolo wine region with country tours”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

I can't say enough about Antonio and Alexandra from Country-Tours based in Siena. I had one free day during a meeting in Turin and wanted to visit the nearby countryside. I found country-tours on the internet and with a leap of faith (and a little research) booked a full day for 3 of us to visit the Barolo region. The tour was private, included wine tastings at two wineries, lunch and some free time in the town of Alba.
Alexandra was a pleasure to deal with in making the arrangements and was very responsive to all of my questions and concerns. Antonio was our driver and guide. He was charming, informative and arranged the most fantastic day! We visited two small family wineries, met the owners, learned the process and traditions and tasted many fabulous wines (along with some delicious salami!). Lunch was exclusive and delicious. While the cost is not small, the quality, value and experience were absolutely worth every penny- we certainly recommend them highly and hope to use their services and expertise many times in the future-
