If you don’t know very much about wine or the Barolo region, you should visit Chiara Boschis. Her visits are chock full of information; she will take you all the way from the roman times to the present, giving you a full history of the region. Chiara is one of the “Barolo Boys” (yes, I know she is a woman), and along with the Barolo Boys she was part of the revolution that turned Barolo into a world wide phenomenon. In addition to her educational visits, another good reason to visit with her is her incredible energy. Her passion for what she does is incredible and her positive energy is contagious.
