Here is what you will live
Get ready to enjoy a beautiful escape in Piedmont with this 3 days experience! With this tour not only will you have the chance to taste incredible produts, discover beautiful artists, but you'll also participate to an important charity project aimed at supporting the scientific research.
Strade di Vite is the new project promoted by Fondazione GRADE Onlus thanks to the precious support of Collezione Maramotti, the famous private collection of contemporary art opened at the historical Max Mara. A "combination of arts" intended to fund two national research projects that, together with the Italian Lymphoma Foundation, will be carried out for a period of 5 years and for an economic commitment of 1 million and 200 thousand euros.
The program includes 6 italian wineries that have enthusiastically accepted the idea of combining their name to that of great artists, creating unique labels to give life to exclusive works for both wine lovers and contemporary art collectors. The 6 references are limited edition and the proceeds will be donated to the GRADE Foundation to support the project "Research or not Research?" and fund two major research projects PREVID and FOLL19.

Here's the program:
Day 1: Welcome in Piedmont
Arrival at La Raia in Gavi. You'll arrive on your own at this beautiufl Estate in the heart of one of the most interesting wine destinations in Italy. You'll check in after 4 pm, relax and have a special dinner and ovenright at the Locanda. Gavi’s traditional cuisine, historically contaminated by elements from Liguria and Piedmont, has been revised in the menu signed by Michelin-awarded chef Tommaso Arrigoni.
Day 2: Alba and Tenuta Cucco
This morning you'll go towards Alba. The Cucco Estate awaits for you for an incredible tasting and discovery. The Wine Tour of Tenuta Cucco is a small journey in the shadow of a mysterious castle through vineyards, historic villages, and the secrets of a typical Langhe cellar.
The Wine Tour at Tenuta Cucco starts from Vigna Cucco: this is the source of the finest grapes, best suited for great wines that only improve with ageing. The vineyard is shown on the historic Barolo map of Renato Ratti, and is located inside the Menzione Geografica Aggiuntiva Cerrati, a cru offered on the market only by our company. From Vigna Cucco we can gaze at the eastern-most boundaries of the Barolo region, with its charming sequence of gentle slopes and historic towers. The tastings of the wines, all accompanied by local products, in particular cured meats and aged cheeses, take place inside our lounge with a view of the Serralunga d'Alba Castle.
During the tasting you'll also see and receive a bottle of the Barolo del comune di Serralunga d’Alba 2016. The label has been designed by Amedeo Martegani and this is one of the 6 exclusive bottles part of the "Strade di Vite project".
After the tasting you go back towards Alba and have a lunch included in the city center, before heading back to La Raia. Relax and tonight you'll have dinner on own. Overnight.
Day 3: La Raia and Gavi
This morning, after breakfast, you will have the chance to enjoy a beautiful visit of La Raia Estate, followed by a tasting of 3 labels. You'll also receive a bottle of Gavi Pisé biodinamico 2018. The label has been designed by Claudia Losi.
After the tasting, check out and end of a beautiful escape in Piedmont!
