Tonight, I have had the chance to visit some pretty nice wine bars to feel the scene in Shanghai and get a sense of where the wine scene is going.
Here is a review...Read More
Here is a place w/ great personality & absolutely creative & lip-smacking dishes. A terrific atmosphere & fantastic & well researched wine list... Definitely worth having to book at least 10 days ahead! When you go, make sure to ask for an Australian Wine pairing if you order the Chef's menu...

quite frankly, for an agriturismo, cascina barac where we stayed is on a class of its own.
its location is fantastically located in the middle of the hills overlooking vines left right and center, the quality of its room superb, and the friendliness of its management incomparable.
on seeing other hotels and agriturismo during our tour of the langhe, i would say the cascina barac is the best for it's location (10 minutes from alba, 15 minutes from barbaresco, 1/2 hour from barolo), it's quietness, and more importantly for this kind of travel, it's wow factor. this place is everything one imagine (and hope for) for a wine tour in italy.
we felt so much at home that we plan to make cascina barac our base each time we will visit piedmont in the future.
i recommend the suite if you are going to spend more than 3 nights and it has an apartment that is fully appointed for a group of 4.
albino bonelli, it's owner is super friendly and he helped us a great deal to finalise some difficult bookings.
here is a photo i took from the gate on our arrival - you can see the village of treiso on the background:
and another one on the evening before we left - you can feel the ''dolce vita''!!:
