La Morra

In the center of the north Italian region of Piemonte on top of a vineyard-lined hill lies La Morra. It and the surrounding hills are one of the most significant wine growing regions of the Piedmont and it is the origin of some of Barolo’s best wines – among the most influential vintners are Elio Altare and  Roberto Voerzo. So the wineries are very worth visiting. But just strolling around the steep roads of the village is very rewarding, too. In the upper, old, part of La Morra are some great little restaurants to eat some local fare. There is also one of the most impressive wine shops of the region. On the main square right at the highest point of the hill vis à vis the local school on Piazza Castello stands the in 1711 erected Torre La Morra. Sometimes the door to the staircase is unlocked and the breathtaking view from the top will be the reward of 31 meters of climbing stairs.
