A small, rural town in the province of ASTI, 32 km north-west of the city, which is considered as the heart of Basso Monferrato.
This area is particularly suitable for growing vines.
On these lovely hills, in fact, the nature of the soil, the microclimate and vineyard exposure allow us to produce top quality wines.
A few kilometres from Turin, there are plenty of amazing places to be discovered and unforgettable experiences you can enjoy in the name of sustainable tourism. The area includes the towns of Albugnano, Castelnuovo Don Bosco, Passerano Marmorito and Pino d’Asti, up to the western border of Monferrato, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This predominantly rural area is characterised by a perfect balance between man and nature, making it a surprisingly attractive tourist destination.


Albugnano DOC and other wines from Albugnano 549 winemakers association pair perfectly with the flavours of the most popular Piedmontese foods and dishes, such as truffles, Fassona beef, handmade pasta and typical desserts: each dish tells the story of this area, with its traditions and much appreciated cuisine.
If you have a sweet tooth, you can appreciate the flavours of the local cuisine at one of the farmhouse restaurants managed by Albugnano DOC winemakers: Alle Tre Colline, Ca’Mariuccia, Pianfiorito and Terra e Gente, all located in Albugnano.
Many zero mile products are used to prepare local dishes: vegetables, fruit, meats, preserves and cheeses, such as Robiola di Cocconato, a fresh and soft cheese made with pasteurized cow milk.


The area is rich in sacred sites, most of which are Romanesque architecture buildings, including the stunning Canonica di Santa Maria di Vezzolano, better known as the Abbazia di Vezzolano, where a supportive and industrious religious community has lived since the 8th century and has also given its valuable contribution to the revival of viticulture, after the disastrous effects of the barbarian invasions in the Middle Ages. Today, the vicarage is managed by Turismo In Collina, a voluntary association that works to make this ancient sacred place accessible to tourists and share its story.
Among the many interesting things to see there is, in particular, the Chiesa di Santa Maria di Cornareto in Castelnuovo, which dates back to the 12th century but was remodelled between the 17th and 18th centuries, and the small Chiesa di San Giorgio in Aramengo, from the same period. Not so old but equally interesting is the Basilica di Don Bosco, built between 1961 and 1966 to replace the Biglione-Damevino farm, the place where Don Bosco was born and can still be visited.


The rolling hills that characterise the area are ideal for experienced cyclists, but pedal assisted e-bikes are also available and can be rented directly from the one of the local farmhouses, the perfect starting points for relaxing trips with your friends and family . The area is also much appreciated by hiking enthusiasts, who can take one of the trails on the Po Hills, between Turin and Monferrato.
Country roads, dirt roads, small towns with narrow streets and alleys, and stunning panoramic views that you can enjoy while cycling or walking in this beautiful area of Piedmont.


The list of facilities and cosy bed & breakfasts managed by the winemakers from the Albugnano 549 association, includes: Alle Tre Colline, Ca’Mariuccia, Tenuta Tamburnin and Terra e Gente. Here, if you are a sports enthusiast, or if you are just looking for a peaceful place where to relax, rooms in the countryside are also available, with spectacular views and all the silence and peace you are looking for.
