Percorsi dell’Astesana

Astesana Wine Route

Outdoors

Percorsi dell’Astesana
An ancient area steeped in history, but also a Wine Route with over 200 member wineries promoting, all together, one of the Piedmont's most beautiful corners: Astesana.
Landscapes that are the result of a wine vocation that has been passed down from ancient times to the present day, and which has characterised the life and economy of the entire region. Knowledge, techniques, traditions and research are the ingredients that have shaped these hills into a geometric mosaic of vineyards, meadows, groves, small villages, valleys and streams. 

A physical and cultural landscape created by the perfect balance between a generous nature and man’s labour, an environment so precious that in 2014 it became the 50th site in Italy to be inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Only if you walk or cycle on these hills, venture through the valleys and along the most beautiful ridges will you understand the reason behind this prestigious recognition: Hundreds, thousands of rows of vines which, when viewed as a whole, appear as an enormous pentagram where the cycle of life and the seasons will draw their notes, and those bunches will produce the great wines which depart from here to reach the tables all over the world.Trekking and bike trails marked out by the Associazione Strada del Vino Astesana (Astesana Wine Road Association) so that everyone can enjoy this beauty and harmony: itineraries to be "tasted" calmly, savouring every nuance and fragrance, just as you would with the key product of these landscapes.

La Strada del Brachetto

The Brachetto Wine Route

Not all rubies are meant to be worn, some can even be tasted. This is the ruby red of Brachetto, the wine that could never be missing from the living rooms of Piedmontese “madamin”. The sweet, aromatic, low-alcohol, lively, rose-scented wine that used to be served chilled when it was fashionable to meet at home for social gatherings.  Times have changed, but Brachetto has retained its allure as a refined drink to be enjoyed in conversation and happy moments.

La Strada del Moscato di Canelli

The Moscato di Canelli Wine Route

Breathtaking ridges, vineyards extending as far as the eye can see, villages with ancient charm and World Heritage landscapes. A journey through vine shoots, vines and grapes that everyone knows in their liquid form but few have the privilege of experiencing in their organic state.

La Strada del Nizza

The Nizza Wine Route

The Asti sands are placed on marly clays and are rich in microelements... a lot of sands to form huge heaps: no, they are not dunes, because the sands are those of an ancient sea whereas today they are the green hills of Barbera and, more precisely those of the nearby 18 villages which, thanks to their excellent exposure and perfect climatic conditions, boast the cultivation of Nizza DOCG.

Strada della Barbera della Rocchetta

The Barbera di Rocchetta Wine Route

Its name is Rocchetta Tanaro, because for four millennia, on this river bank man has found a fertile and quiet place to dedicate himself to agriculture and trade. But it could also be called Rocchetta Barbera, because it was from here in the 1980s that Giacomo Bologna took up the challenge to introduce the world to a wine that until then had been considered a "wine of the people" and therefore, quite incorrectly, unworthy of attention. Or we could call it Rocchetta della Natura (Rocchetta’s nature) because it is the starting point of one of the largest Nature Reserves in the Province of Asti.
