| WHERE WE ARE |
Villa Ribota is nestled among the vines outside the village of Novello, in the Barolo Langhe, a small, hilly region within Piedmont, in Italy’s North West. A wine and food lover’s paradise, this relatively small, breathtakingly beautiful area is home to the International Slow Food movement, white truffles and some of the world’s finest wines.
The house is surrounded by Nebbiolo vines, the grapes from which make Barolo. You can walk from the garden into the vines and in about 40 minutes reach Novello, which has three restaurants, two cafes, a small grocery store, a bakery and a communal wine cellar. From Novello you can keep walking on well-signposted footpaths to Barolo, La Morra, Monforte d’Alba and beyond..
Alternatively, jump in the car and you have dozens of small villages to choose from within just a few minutes, including Barolo, La Morra, Monforte d’Alba, Verduno and Castiglione Faletto. Within 20 minutes you can be in Bra (the home of Slow Food) or Alba (which hosts the annual International White Truffle Fair) and within an hour you can be shopping in Turin, hiking in the Alps or lazing on a beach on the Italian Riviera.
The house offers the best of both worlds; it is immersed in the countryside yet it is not far from anywhere. There are dozens of restaurants and wine cantine within just a five minute drive.
