WELCOME TO OUR HOME ON THE DOGLIANI HILLS
Come and discover the delight of our hills, the flavours of our cuisine, the taste of our wines.
Upon reservation our farm organises either individual or group guided tours with the scope of learning in depth about the territory, the vineyards and the wine cellar, whilst enjoying the taste of our wines combined with typical local specialities.
PICNIC IN DOGLIANI
Wouldn’t it be lovely to enjoy a picnic in the countryside today? A checkered placemat, a picnic basket, some fresh bread, wine and cheese with homemade jams and you casting a glance at me.
The Aldo Marenco farm recommends a stroll with a stop for a picnic in the gorgeous Dogliani landscape. The route crossing the courtyard farm is a 10 km long loop and has a vertical drop of 228 meters. It is suitable for families as it requires a little more than three hours of relaxed walking. The well-marked panoramic path winds its way from the historic centre of the town throughout green fields and ends on top of a panoramic hill.
The Aldo Marenco Farm provides its guests with a thermal rucksack containing a blanket, a small knife, a corkscrew, two water glasses, two wine glasses, two cutlery sets and two paper plates needed for the picnic.

WHAT YOU WILL SEE
The tour starts from the historic centre of Dogliani village towards Dogliani Castello up on the hill. It continues through the San Giorgio hamlet, topping the hill surrounded by green fields, and leads to the Pamparato hamlet alongside the beautiful and colourful Sanctuary of Madonna delle Grazie restored by architect Giovanni Battista Schellino in 1867. Eventually, the tour direction turns back to the centre of the village, passing nearby the entry gate of the Monumental Cemetery. Then it heads downhill to the Robinson park and ends up when arriving at the sports facilities of the village.
STEP BY STEP TASTING
Appetite should be stimulated to enhance the pleasure of tasting. Claudio Marenco will be pleased to take you for a nice and relaxed walk through the vineyards (depending on weather conditions), to show you the organic cultivation methods, see the wine cellar to explain the many secrets of our own wine making process. The younger Matteo will share his toys with your children in the courtyard and, if ever you come with your dog, it will enjoy our Zago Zago’s company to play with. The tour will eventually end in our cosy tasting room.
