Langhe under the snow

Snowing in Piedmont is not unusual phenomenon, but it never makes me happy. Few weeks ago after an intensive downfall I took a short tour in Alba area and landscape emerging from a white cover was amazing! Let’s have a look at pictures below. First Barolo and its castles: Castello Falletti di Barolo and Castello della Volta (unfortunately ruined).

Castello di Serralunga d’Alba always looks like a grim fortress but during the winter blended in a white scenery it can be an inspiration for not a single writer…

And finally some pictures of beautiful Langhe hills: small little towns, vineyards and castles.
