Passion for wine since 1467

Tenuta Carretta is a splendid winery that sets the stage of an amphitheatre of unique and evocative vineyards. They make up a part of the touristic ‘wine mosaic’ through which visitors can follow a guided trail through the vineyards.
Guided visits to the winery, two high-end restaurants (one at the winery and the other in Barolo on the Cannubi hill), the elegant Charme Hotel and a welcoming Enoteca – Wine Shop, make up the rest of the mosaic.
