BREAKING NEWS! (22/06/2014)
Langhe- Roero and Monferrato now a UNESCO World Heritage area.

June 2014

Application was made 10 years ago to the UNESCO committee for acceptance and now it has been agreed. This beautiful area now joins with the Italian cities of Verona, Siena, Venice and Ferrara and famous Italian sites and areas such as Pompeii, Mount Etna, the Dolomites and the Trulli of Alberobello. Nice!

Nice!

What does this mean for the area? Well, it's just the start of much greater things - world recognition, increase in tourism and for sure a rise in property prices (try buying a cheap home in the Dolomites, Siena or Venice..).

If you're thinking about buying here - don't wait! We've been saying for over a year that it's the right time to buy - prices are sure to rise.

UNESCO - The Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato

 

From the Unesco Website: The Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato

Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato covers five distinct wine-growing areas with outstanding landscapes and the Castle of Cavour, an emblematic name both in the development of vineyards and in Italian history. It is located in the southern part of Piedmont, between the Po River and the Ligurian Appenines, and encompasses the whole range of technical and economic processes relating to the winegrowing and wine making that has characterized the region for centuries. Vine pollen has been found in the area dating from the 5th century BC, when Piedmont was a place of contact and trade between the Etruscans and the Celts; Etruscan and Celtic words , particularly wine-related ones, are still found in the local dialect. During the Roman Empire, Pliny the Elder mentions the Piedmont region as being one of the most favourable for growing vines in ancient Italy; Strabo mentions its barrels.
