BANCA DEL VINO
The magnificent vaults of the Agenzia’s cellars have been silent witnesses to the most significant stages in the evolution of great Piedmontese red wines. It is no coincidence that the restoration project should valorize these spaces in particular to build up one of the most important wine collections of Italian wines in the world, all handpicked by a commission of experts.
The Wine Bank offers a unique experience: a journey through Italian wine excellence with guided visits, tasting workshops, tours of the Langhe and Roero districts in search of their fabulous cellars and vineyards. The Bank promotes wine and wine culture in collaboration with Slow Food and the University of Gastronomic Sciences, organizing a multitude of initiatives, among which the recent institution of a Master in Wine Culture, a postgraduate course designed to train wine tellers, the future ambassadors of wines from the local area.
You can book your visit at the hotel reception.
UNIVERSITY OF GASTRONOMIC SCIENCES
Young people from all over the world come to Pollenzo every year to discover flavors, gastronomic excellence and the best production techniques.
It was here, among the hills in the heart of rural Piedmont, that the story of Slow Food, the association that puts “good, clean and fair” food at the center of the cultural debate, began. And it was from an idea of Slow Food’s that the project to restore the entire Pollenzo complex was born.
