Not to be mistaken for Marcialonga, who are for people who prefer energy drinks and granola bars to fine wine and slow food, and requires the presence of snow, Mangialonga is a non-competitive walk, and festival, in the vineyards of La Morra.
On August 28 this year, meet up with people from all over the world, taste typical products of the Langhe along four kilometers across beautiful landscapes and vineyards.
La Morra is one of the 11 Barolo producing communes in Piemonte. It houses renowned winemakers like Elio Altare and Roberto Voerzio, and famous vineyards like Brunate, Cerequio, Arborina, and Rocche dell’Annunziata
Here http://bit.ly/fnWBuk you will find suggestions on where to stay, eat and shop while in Piemonte.
If Barolos from vineyards like these, and vintners like Altare/Voerzio, do not float your boat, but you like the idea of enogastronomic hikes, here’s some sister/twin events in other wine regions this summer:
