Tenuta Carretta is a splendid winery which acts as a stage for a unique and evocative amphitheater of vineyards and is an integral part of a "wine tourism mosaic" which includes a guided tour in the vineyards, a visit to the cellars, two excellent restaurants (one on the farm, the second to Barolo, on the famous Cannubi hill), an elegant Charming Hotel and a welcoming Enoteca – Wine Shop.
Region Info/ Origin
The name Piedmont comes from medieval Latin Pedemontium or Pedemontis, meaning "at the foot of the mountains". Surrounded on three sides by the Alps, including Monviso, where the Po rises, and Monte Rosa, the geography of Piedmont is also broadly coincident with the upper part of the drainage basin of the river Po, which rises from the slopes of Monviso in the west of the region and is Italy's largest river. Piedmont benefits from the excellent viticulture and receives good temperate climate suitable for growing quality white grape varietals.
