Reply To: Piemonte and The 2014 Alba Truffle Festival


We were just in the Langhe this past November (as well as May 2012).  This last trip we visited many producers.  Our favorites included Oddero and Silvio Grasso in La Morra;  Cavalotto and Paolo Scavino in Castiglione Falletto; GD Vajra in Barolo; and Sottimano in Nieve.  All spectacular wines and fabulous people.

There are some really fantastic restaurants in the area!

  • Massimo Camia in Barolo is our absolute favorite!   The chef is amazing and during truffle season, those dishes are just that much better.
  • In La Morra – More e Macine is good for lunch
  • In Bra – Boccondivino, this is where the Slow Food is located.
  • Ristorante Bovio in La Morra is white table cloth, excellent food, top notch service.  Also in La Morra is Osteria Vignaiolo – this place is not only good for dinner, but lunch as well!

We shipped a case home via United our last trip.  It was so easy to do.  The MBE is right on Corso Europa – we were in an out of there with our shipping carton in less than 10 minutes!  Just remember to bring some sort of fat permanent market to mark fragile, this end up, your name etc…  We were able to grab one when we were in Bologna but just easier to have one with you.
