In many of the towns in Barolo you will find a Cantina Communale. Here you van buy wines from the producers from that specific time. At the Cantina Communale in Castiglione you will find wines from the producers in Castiglione, same goes for La Morra. What is nice about the Cantina Communale is that there is barely a markup and the selection is great.
At the Cantina Communale in La Morra you will find the wonderful Emanuela. I love opening the door to the store and seeing her face. Her smile is priceless.
The staff at the Cantina Communale is very knowledgable and can help you find what you are looking for. This is also a place you can get information about the area, for example if you are looking for a restaurant or a walking path. So stop by if you can, and if you see Emanuela, give her a big hug from me!
