How to reach Barolo

By car

The town is located a good hour’s drive south of Turin. From here you take A6 motorway, and when you get south of Bra, you take A33 motorway towards Barolo.

The A6 motorway connects Turin with the motorway in Liguria, which runs along the Mediterranean Sea and connects the French border with Tuscany.

By plane

Turin Airport is the closest to Barolo. There is a little more than 100 kilometers from the airport to the city, so the trip can be done quite quickly in a rented car.

If you are going by public transport, then the trip goes by bus to Turin, then by train down to either Bra or Alba, and from there you must transfer to a bus again to get to Barolo.

That trip can be a bit long.

Visit Barolo

Today, Barolo is best known for its wine, and there is not a place in the town, a street, a street corner, or a nook where there is room for a wine bar, where you do not see signs indicating that here you can buy wine.

There are wine merchants everywhere, almost, and there is plenty of opportunities to taste these expensive but delicious drops before you decide which bottle to buy.

I would advise you to spend some days in this area. Because in addition to being a heavenly beautiful town, it is also fascinating to meet and see the locals and feel how much this wine means to them.

It is of course also their livelihood, or at least it is for many of those who live here, but they do a lot to ensure that the quality is top notch.

Barolo wine

You cannot visit the town without tasting this famous wine, which gave the town its name. The wine is made from the red Nebbiolo grapes.

When you arrive in this area, and before you enter the town, you will pass through the panoramic vineyards that careen up and down the rather hilly landscape.

The charm is unmistakable, and you are thrown into the pure love of this area when you are served a glass of Barolo DOCG, which is the finest, the absolute finest red wine that mother earth has given us.

Barolo is the perfect destination for a wine and food holiday. Here you are in the company of the best creators of wine, and with the tranquility you find around the hills.

The Barolo wine is also host to a museum in the city, but also to several different events, such as counting the big wine festival that takes place in September.

The climate here is the most important thing for producing such good wines. The warm and sunny climate, combined with humidity, is optimal for harvesting the best grapes in autumn.

This is of course not enough, because behind this there must be skilled and competent people who know what needs to be done to get the right and best taste.

With many years of experience and traditions, this is fortunately not a problem, and thus we know the wines such as Dolcetto and Grignolino, Moscato and Barbera, which are enjoyed all over the world.

However, Barolo is, without any comparison, the greatest among its siblings. That is why it is called the king of all wines.
