We did a really wonderful visit to Banfi wineries the other week. Ok the main HQ is in Toscana but the Piemonte location is in fact busily producing our local wines including Champagne Methodo Classico, Brachetto and of course the solid reds of our hills.

So we showed up on a blisteringly hot afternoon to a rather inconspicuous door with a simple sign above it.

So give you a little taste here are some photos and the good news is you can book a tour through Verdmont, for €30 per person we will chauffer you to the cantina you can enjoy a 30 minute tour of the cantina and bottling facility followed by a delicious tasting of three wines and Champagnes with salami, cheeses and Focaccia, and lastly a stop at the Enoteca to buy on the way home! Available Monday to Friday.
