What better place to taste wines than a quiet little square facing the Duomo of Alba, the capital city of the Langhe? All over the world, Langa means wine-making excellence, and at Vinoteca La Sacrestia, with its unique ambiance, tasting a glass of wine or a cocktail will become an unforgettable experience.
Filippa, who runs La Sacrestia together with her daughters Gaia and Carlotta, will offer you the best food and wine pairings. The key word here is “simplicity”. On top of cold cuts and cheese platters, the kitchen proposes dishes of the Langhe and Piedmontese tradition, all rigorously home-made, such as vitello tonnato, Albese carpaccio meat, plin ravioli and egg tajarin, and the delicious Castelmagno filet. However, Filippa the Cook, a Sicilian lady married to an Albese, with her five-year experience in Tuscany and four-year-experience at the Locanda del Barbaresco, also likes to venture into delicacies of other regions. The desserts are among the specialties of La Sacrestia – don’t miss out on the chocolate lovers’ cake.
The aperitif is the highlight of the Vinoteca: always rich and varied, featuring cold cuts, hors-d’oeuvres and the famous tramezzini.
Typical local products are available at the Vinoteca boutique: wines, liquors, sweets, chocolate, home-made pasta, biscotti di meliga (corn biscotti), cheeses, cold cuts, and when in season, mushrooms and truffles, of the Tuber Magnatum Pico species, the White Truffle, representative of the city of Alba in the world.
