Tenuta Carretta Winery
Tenuta Carretta is in Piobesi d’Alba, Roero, a hilly area north of the City of Alba and on the left bank of the Tanaro River. This is where the headquarters are situated, surrounded by just under 35 hectares of vineyards. To the south of the river lies the hills of the Langhe, where the other 35 hectares of vineyards are located, for a total of 70 hectares.
The kitchen of Flavio Costa, awarded one Michelin star, is innovative and creative without forgetting the traditions of its roots.
Flavio Costa’s menu is based on high-quality raw materials predominantly linked to two regions: Liguria, his place of origin, for the seafood dishes, and Piedmont, his adopted region, with plates from the Langhe and Roero.
