Barolo and Barbaresco – new UNESCO World Heritage Site

Italian regions of Langhe-Roero and Monferrato, which includes the well-known wine regions of Barolo and Barbaresco, were on June 22 appointed UNESCO World Heritage Site. Congratulations to all the producers we know in the region! And we agree with UNESCO when they say that the region of Langhe Roero and Monferrato is one of the most scenic wine country landscapes that can be found.

The appointment includes the seven municipalities in Barolo DOCG, Barolo, Castiglione Falletto, Grinzane Cavour, La Morra, Monforte d’Alba, Novello and Monforte d’Alba, and two municipalities in Barbaresco DOCG, Barbaresco and Neive.
