Tour of the winery and vineyards with tasting
The tour offers the opportunity to find out more about Poderi Luigi Einaudi from the point of view of terroir and winemaking, and includes an in-depth guided tasting.
The landscape and the architectural context in which everything takes place are very interesting: the old barrel cellar, the modern new winemaking cellar and the newly-renovated 18th century family home.
First step of the tour: a look at the history of the estate.
The winery was established in 1897 by Luigi Einaudi, and is now managed by the third and fourth generations of his descendants, with the same passion and same way of operating: “Innovation with respect for tradition”.
Your guide will tell you about all the events and changes that have made Einaudi the internationally acclaimed estate that it is today.
Second step of the tour: the winemaking cellar
The modern cellar is built almost entirely underground, next to Cascina Tecc. It was renewed in 1993, then again in 2001, and is currently undergoing further expansion.
You will be given a detailed account of both the historical and the new parts of the cellar, allowing you to learn about the production processes and how patience and dedication are important in order to maintain a high level of quality.
Third step of the tour: tasting the various “terroirs”
In order to gain a better understanding of the different nuances of the Langa territory, you will be given the chance to taste four different wines:
- The Dogliani Terroir: the Dogliani area is represented by Dogliani Vigna Tecc, a Dolcetto which has received numerous awards from the major wine guides, in different vintages;
- Our well-structured and harmonious Barbera is capable of competing with the finest wines in its category.
- The Neive Terroir: with Nebbiolo Langhe Doc made with grapes from the Podere di Neive, located in the Bric Micca subzone (Neive), in the Barbaresco production zone;
- A Barolo Docg: we have four Barolo wines, all made in the municipality of Barolo. The most famous is Cannubi, then there are Vigna Costa Grimaldi, which is in the subzone of Terlo (a cru which belongs exclusively to our estate), Terlo, which is becoming increasingly appreciated by the Italian and international press, and Barolo Docg.
