The territory in detail

Monferrato, one of the cultural hearts, artistically and economically of Piedmont

The territory in detail

In Piedmont, an hour's drive from Milan, Turin and Genova and just a little further away from the borders of France and Switzerland, between the Alps and the Ligurian Sea, are the province of Alessandria and the province of Asti, representing one of Piedmont's cultural, artistic and economic hearts.

It is a land to be crossed, slowly and with careful attention because the welcome and hospitality equals that of  the beauty of the landscapes. Mountains, rivers and hills where one can  stop,  get to know and appreciate  a lifestyle which is revealed in traditions, history of art, and through the wealth of cuisine, and by its thermal waters.

Spring and summer are the best times for those who want to enjoy the most scenic landscapes and devote themselves to outdoor sports activities. Autumn and winter, however are favored by  gourmets who can taste the prestigious "fruits" of the territory in combination with fine wines: truffles, mushrooms, chestnuts and hazelnuts.
