    Itinerary

    Gattinara is a nice little town located along the Sesia river in North Piedmont, less than 1 hour from Stresa and Lake Maggiore.

    With the Monte Rosa in the background, this is an amazing vineyards area dedicated to Nebbiolo, the same grape used for the more famous Barolo. This grape gives Gattinara wines their characteristic ruby red colour and tannic flavour, somehow more delicate than Barolo’s.

    You will be picked up at your hotel by our private driver who will be with you for the whole duration of the tour.

    Less than 1 hour later you will reach Travaglini, a beautiful family owned winery, one of the biggest and best-reputed in the area.

    Guided by an expert, you will first stop to see the vineyards and then visit the cellars to learn about the production of Gattinara wines and the Travaglini family.

    A thorough tasting will follow, including 4 different wines with completely different characters: from the lighter, friendlier Nebbiolo Coste della Sesia DOC up to Il Sogno, made with dry Nebbiolo grapes, a method similar to the one used for Amarone. The tasting will be accompanied with local products such as salami and cheese in order to bring out the flavours of the different wines.

    At lunch time we will book for you a local restaurant of our choice: we selected a warm family-run restaurant and strongly suggest you do not miss out on local entrèes such as Vitello Tonnato, a great Gattinara Wine Risotto and, as you are in Piedmont, the best meat to be found in Italy.
