I have been on a lot of winery tours and this was definitely one of the best. The "wine cathedral" cellars are beautiful. Even more amazing is the process of wine making that Contratto practices. The wine is aged in the bottle and every bottle is turned by hand. We were lucky enough to see the whole corking process as... More

This is a monument you have to see when you come to Piedmont. This is historical. For me the nicest cellar in the region and the best spumante you cabn get.

Arrived without a confirmed reservation. Fortunately, Elisa was kind enough to set up our very own personal tour of the Cantina. She was very thorough and kept us delightfully entertained. You must visit this UNESCO site when you are in the area. The millions of bottles of wine are amazing to see.

My husband and I just finished a delightful tasting and tour of the Contratto Cantina. Be sure to call ahead to sign up, as numbers are limited. Our guide, Carlotta, was friendly, knowledgeable and very professional! First the tour, then a tasting of 4 varieties from their cellars, all accompanied by excellent cheese, salumerie and breadsticks. No hard sell at... More

We had a lovely guide called Carlotta who was full of information and patient with all our questions. After the cellar tour there's a tasting of 4 of their sparkling wines accompanied with salami and parmesan cheese plus hazelnuts.

We did a wine tour and tasting. Elissa, our guide in this tour, was charming and knowledgeable. The cantina is beautiful, and the explanation of the production of the sparkling wine was very interesting. The wine we tasted after the tour was really good. In summary, the visit in the cantina was lovely and enjoyable.
