The enoteca is located in the monumental 13th century castle Grinzane Cavour, that was once the home of the Count Cavour. Located approximately 5 km south of Alba. The enoteca was established in 1967, making it the oldest in the Piedmont. It brings together a broad selection of wines from the Piedmont but most notably Barolos and Barbarescos. On the top floor of the castle is a museum, displaying ancient implements, handicrafts and furniture of the Alba area that is well worth visiting.
On the floor above the enoteca is the Grinzane Cavour Restaurant that is open for lunch and dinner every day except on Tuesday.
