Castagnole delle Lanzen, nestled among the enchanting hills of Langhe and Monferrato, is a city rich in history and the charm of the Italian countryside. Its name reveals a rich past: “delle Lanze” actually links it to a noble family named Lance, who owned these lands at the end of the 12th century. Strategically located on the turn of the ancient Via Emilia, it became a crossroads for travelers and merchants over time. The town’s development saw it pass from hand to hand among nobles until the 19th century, when its love affair with wine production began, marked by the construction of the Parco delle Rimembranze tower. This tower offers a wide view of the surrounding landscape and testifies to the historical importance of the city.

In the culinary scene of Castagnole delle Lanze, three main elements dominate Barbera wine Muscat and hazelnuts. The famous hazelnut Tonda Gentile delle Langhe” is the cornerstone of the local economy and even the global brand Ferrero sources its supplies from these countries. Barbera wine is celebrated through the town’s signature dish, “Barbera risotto,” and the annual three-day Barbera Festival, which showcases the region’s wine heritage with great fanfare. Enjoy it too. Scaramella is a special cut of meat very suitable for slow and tasty cooking, such as stew or roast. All this and then finish with a toast of Muscat, a sweet, sparkling wine made from the Moscato Bianco grape, which thrives in the local climate and enhances the town’s winemaking prestige.

In the end, they are very interesting, colorful porches from Via Ener Bettica with references to nature created by Vincenzo Piccatto and country chapels that dominate the hilly scene with a touch of art and spirituality.
