Uve – New place to drink in La Morra

Uve Rooms & Wine Bar

There are always popping up new places to eat, drink and sleep in La Morra, and Uve is one of them. It’s located in the main street leading up to the *top* of La Morra. You can also stay there, they have rooms, but I have not tried it yet. I usually stay at Blueberry, but I’d like to try Uve sometime soon; it’s always nice to mix it up.

Anyway, I have been to the wine bar and it was really nice. You can sit inside or outside, but if the weather permits I always prefer to sit outside. They have many tables scattered around the garden, and although there is no view of the Langhe, it’s very cozy. The wine list was of course also good (it’s not exactly hard to find good wines in the area). Overall a very pleasant experience and I will definitely come back.

Any of you ever tried the rooms?

Trediberri – Langhe Nebbiolo 2016

Trediberri Langhe Nebbiolo 2016

One of my new favorite winemakers in Nicola at Trediberri. You’ll have to look hard to find a more energetic, eager to learn, interesting young winemaker. The winery is located below La Morra in the middle of the vineyards. He is a relatively new winemaker, but his wines are well balanced and fresh. Definitely worth a try if you can get a hold of a bottle (or a glass).

This wine has the characteristics of a typical nebbiolo: fruity, floral, cherries. As it is a nebbiolo, it might need to breathe a little to open up, but it’s a fresh wine, easy to drink.
