Nice winery with an amazing ancient cellar builds hundreds of years ago under the building and the garden. It is unique and a MUST if you want to visit an historical handmade traditional CANTINA PIEMONTESE. Unfortunately, it is in the center of Neive which makes...More

Cantina del Glicine doesn't look like much from the street. The tasting room is quite modest, with a large table and communal chairs around it. The mature lady who pontificated over the wine tasting is a funny character and makes you feel welcome. The cellars...More

The cellar is quite an experience, the oldest in Italy still producing wine. The wine tasting is accompanied by different types of cheese and hazelnuts. It costs 10€, well worth it. The lady was friendly and welcoming. I believe one shouldn’t miss il Glicine.

If you've been doing something since 1582, you must be doing it right. Short tour of the ancient wine cellar (hence, 'cantina,') and a lovely, unrushed tasting in the sunny, inviting tasting room. BTW cats factor heavily in the signage and labeling for Glicine which...More

Wonderfully family run place. Welcoming, friendly and good wine! Highly recommend - our youngish family (8, 10, 12 years) were looked after and made most welcome. (Ignore the 2 negative reviews - one clearly from a commercial tour operator looking to make money from the...More

Glicine has a cellar dated back 500 years and is the oldest in the area. We made an appointment to have a cellar tour plus tasting. The winemakers and nonna are extremely hospital, we throughly enjoyed our visit and their wine. We purchased two bottles...More

Although it was all in Italian, we have a very and comprehensive tour of their cellar and then tasted their Arneis, Barbera, Nebbiolo, and Barbaresco. No pressure to buy (although we did), and long, and passionate explanations about many aspects of their wines. Highly recommended.

My sister-in-law had read about this place and thought it would be a worthwhile venture while we were exploring Piemonte, so we decided to check it out. She read that they do two tastings a day, one in the morning and another in the afternoon....More

We had a car rental but public transportation is very good. It is only about 15 minutes away from Alba which is very well known for the truffle festival in October. It is worth visiting.

Neive is small. You can pretty sure get there on foot from wherever the bus stops. Ask for the church, it's 100m away from the winery and both belonged to the same Italian family in the past. Enjoy the visit!!
