Three events are scheduled at the Castello di Monticello d’Alba (CN), located a few kilometers from Alba, in the center of one of Piedmont’s eno-gastronomic areas. The Conti Roero castle is one of the most impressive and best preserved medieval buildings in the area, thanks also to the fact that from 1376 until today it is owned by the same family, the Roero di Monticello, who made it their usual residence.
