Alba, in the heart of Langhe region, is famous for its medieval towers and breathtaking views across the rolling countryside. It is also celebrated for its rich food culture, as the area is home to some prestigious ingredients. White truffles, dark chocolate and wine are some of the flagships of this laid-back town. You’ll also sense a sweet scent in the air, as Alba is the birthplace of the world-famous hazelnuts and cocoa spread!
Imagine yourself wandering through the winding streets of the ‘centro storico’, before heading to a local’s home for a special lunch. You’ll never forget the delicious homemade specialities, prepared just for you. How about thick 'Tajarin' pasta, rolled lovingly by hand, or an iconic Bonet cake, prepared with the finest Piedmont hazelnuts... There’s only one way to experience the real Alba, and that’s in local homes.
