The Langhe area, that is the hilly region located in the province of Cuneo (Piedmont), near the river Tanaro, in the north of Italy, is already famous for wines, cheeses, and truffles. This region is so beautiful that Unesco recently agreed to add it in its long World Heritage Sites list, boosting a new rise in term of tourism, especially for wine and food tasting.
