Location

The location of this ride is in Piedmont, North Italy (“Piemonte” in Italian). The literal translation of Piedmont means “at the foot of the mountain” and accurately describes the terrain. Based in a restored / converted farmhouse, Cascina Belbo, you are in the heart of the “high Langhe” region at 750 meters above sea level. There are numerous hillside roads which surround this location and wind their way through hazelnut groves and vineyards which stretch in all directions from your accommodation. There are endless great riding roads literally on the doorstep (too many to enjoy on one short visit).

The region is a “foodie” paradise famous for its exquisite cuisine and is home to the prized white truffle of Alba; the truffle season is in autumn and restaurateurs travel from around the world to Alba for a chance to buy white truffles for their restaurants. The other famous products of the region are hazelnuts; the nearby town of Alba is home to Ferrero the chocolatier. However, the region is probably most renowned for its world-class red wines and is the origin of Barolo, Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Barbaresco wines.
