Wine shop had interesting selection with lots of local food options also. Kids in the shop wanted chocolate and nuts options. 360° views make for great photos. Location is a little out of the way - you need a car to visit.

This is a prominent castle/estate in the piedmont region. Spectacular views of the surrounding region. The castle is well preserved and the displays are informative and entertaining. A great way to become acquainted with the wines, food and festivals of the area!
