We are wandering in the baking heat through the vines to find the Big red bench it was a little hike from the signpost but as ever the views were worthwhile. The Bench is situated at the top of a hill covered in vines, in the Nizza Docg zone. Right in the heart of Unesco.
The Big benches are a community project and basically huge fun to visit. The idea from American artist Chris Bangle was to feel childlike before a panorama. The are always in panoramic spots with the vines featured. This particular bench is pink for the beautiful, and refreshing flavours of Brachetto d’Acqui. The bench is easy to reach and is close to Alice Bel Colle, which is a small town that is worth a visit for the views alone, Here is a small sample. Both Alice bel Colle and the Bench are a 15 minutes from Verdmont
