Essence of the Alps
Taste the adventure – Small

DESCRIZIONE

On this tour, we chose three things that best represent Biella: elegant wines made of Nebbiolo and Erbaluce grapes, excellent cheeses as well as the finest beers of the region. Tours and tastings of local products will alternate with outdoor activities and relax, to let you live the true Essence of Biellese.

Day 1: Meet the tour leader in the late afternoon at Cascina Foresto hotel in Cossato. Enjoy a welcome drink and have a welcome briefing with the tour leader. Dinner and overnight stay at the hotel.

Day 2: After breakfast, go on an E-bike excursion in the Biellese Savannah, in the Baragge park. Together with an E-bike instructor, we will go on different itineraries depending on the group’s fitness level.
All trails lead to the historical and charming medieval borough of Ricetto di Candelo. We enjoy our lunch at Cascina Foresto and, after some relax, we reach Tenuta Colombara di Livorno Ferraris, (35 min. tranfer). Here, the Rondolino family produces Acquerello, a kind of Carnaroli rice that is unique in the world. We experience a guided tour in the estate and have dinner at La Colombara di Livorno Ferraris Restaurant, then we head back to our hotel.

Day 3: After breakfast, we transfer by minibus to Bessa, an old gold mine used by the romans two thousand years ago, and where it is still possible to look for gold.
We spend half a day trying our luck and if it is by our side we might end the day richer than when we started it!
We then transfer to Biella where we visit MeBo museum, which brings together Casa Menabrea -the longest running brewery in Italy- and Casa Botalla, historic cheese factory in Biella.
Inside MeBo museum you will find a room dedicated entirely to Sbirro, the special cheese made with beer that was created by the union of Menabrea and Botalla. Lunch at the museum, return to the hotel, end of the tour.
