About the location

Gavi is the gateway to some of the finest wines in Piedmont, making it the perfect stop for your wine holiday in Italy.  

Tucked away in the southern part of the region among dramatic mountains, Gavi is a one hour drive from the Ligurian Coast and the Italian port city of Genoa, and only an hour and half away from Turin, the city famous for its Renaissance architecture, gianduja (hazelnut and chocolate paste), and Barolo wine. 

The place to stay during your wine holiday in Gavi, without question, is at Albergo L'Ostelliere - Villa Sparina Resort in Monterotondo, a winery-resort that is also home to the Michelin-plate restaurant, La Gallina.  

Steeped in agrarian traditions, Gavi is a hidden gem destination in Piedmont and only really comes to life in the summer. The Fortress of Gavi, which stands proudly atop a hill, pays homage to the region’s medieval history, and is a good spot to learn about the folklore and legends of Gavi. 

Wine cultivation here has been part of the culture since time immemorial. The renowned white wine of Gavi, made with the native Cortese grape variety, proudly holds the DOCG label, which is synonymous with quality.  

In fact, if you’re a wine lover then you may know it’s been dubbed ‘the white Barolo’. local dishes that are a blend of Ligurian and Piedmont flavours, such as ravioli al tocco and fresh ‘pesce povero’. 

Villa Sparina winery, part of the Villa Sparina Resort, has been at the heart of producing wine from the local grapes since the 1970s and is the rightful place to immerse yourself during your wine holiday in Piedmont.
