The past few years have seen a trend for both Italian and foreign couples from all over the world to choose Piedmont as the venue for their wedding.
It is a land of a thousand facets, a thousand enchanted places and a thousand surprises. There are few Italian regions that boast such a climate, such a welcome and such a variety of food and wine traditions as Piedmont does.
When we think of Piedmont, what immediately comes to mind are the vineyards of the Langhe, Roero and Monferrat areas – the gently rolling hills where the villas nestle, the culinary tradition of excellence. But we also call to mind glimpses of contemporary Turin, interspersed with baroque and historic monuments – a mix of urban landscapes from different eras, coexisting harmoniously and making this city unique and unforgettable.

With intimate, refined style, it preserves the traditional spirit of the farmhouses of the past. Nestling in the green hills, just a 10 minute drive from Alba, this venue will entrance you with all the charm of an old restored villa, every nook and cranny revealing the owner Alessandra’s attention to detail. The wine and the produce of the land are organic, the grains used for pasta and bread-making are ancient ones. The dishes they serve belong to the Piedmontese tradition, with menus specially designed to include even vegetarian and vegan options. This is where silence and the placidity of nature reign, and where time seems to have stood still, allowing you to slowly enjoy the good life in the atmosphere of an ancient village.
Strada Scaparoni, 45,
12051 Alba CN
This old farmhouse has been restored and modernised in line with an architectural style inspired by the contemporary. It’s a wedding venue that will appeal to those who seek tradition but do not wish to give up the comfort of modernity. It is in the lower Susa Valley that you will find this jewel, where the watchword is togetherness: living, sharing, savouring and celebrating together. Exposed bricks, iron, wide windows have been grafted onto the original eighteenth-century style, creating an overall country chic that manages to keep the farmhouse’s identity intact, but enriching it with technologically advanced solutions. The produce is all organic, grown according to the rules of biodynamic agriculture: fruit and vegetables, wine, honey, bread, milk, cheese, yogurt and ice cream. Territory, culture, elegance and environmental protection constitute the ingredients of this successful recipe.
