Gavi is one of a cluster of villages that hides away in the hills north of Genoa. Although it’s a little place, you can’t miss it. Gavi Fort (Forte di Gavi) guards the town, peering down from a hill above the houses. St. Giacomo Church is another architectural gem. A stone bell tower and half-moon stained glass windows set it apart from the rest.   
Explore the streets, and you’ll find a terracotta-topped town centre done up in bright lemon, cream, rose and tangerine colours. There’s also a great foodie trail that ticks off bakeries, cake shops, ristorantes and pizzerias.
Then there are the wineries. Gavi is the DOCG region of the Cortese di Gavi (sometimes labelled Gavi di Gavi). Piedmont is mostly a red region, so this Gavi white is a bit of a local secret – and best paired with seafood shipped up from coastal Liguria.
There’s lots to do beyond Gavi. Serravalle Golf Course lays out 18 holes just a 20-minute drive out of town. Fancy a shot of city life? Point the car north, towards the grand piazzas and palazzos of off-the-tourist-trail Alessandria. They’re only a 45-minute drive away.
