Today, Langhe enjoys boundless prosperity. Decades of winegrowing and winemaking tradition were catalysed by a small band of revolutionaries and amplified by an increasingly pluralistic cohort of winemakers. In 2004, Langhe-Roero and Monferrato have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites, its bucolic hilly landscape recognised as an outstanding example of man’s interaction with the natural environment.
