WHERE WE ARE
Neive, Langhe, Piedmont, Italy,
this is Italo's mantra when he presents Neive.
For him, everything begins in Neive, where he was born,
as were his father and grandfather before him.
Neive is a small town located in the south of Piedmont, more specifically in the Langhe region, whose hills line the right of the Tanaro river at its
The historic division between the town centre and Borgonuovo has kept the 60's and 70's at bay and allowed the centre to survive intact. Its beauty and the work of far-seeing administrators have established Neive as one of the 100 most beautiful towns of Italy.
It is in the heart of the UNESCO site for the ‘Paesaggi Vitivinicoli di Langhe e Monferrato’, the winegrowing landscape of the Langhe and Monferrato.
From a food and wine perspective, it is famous as the ‘land of four wines’, Barbaresco, Barbera d’Alba, Dolcetto d'Alba, and Moscato d’Asti. Though there are numerous other appellations here, these have contributed most to the history of the area.
In addition to its wines, the I.G.P. hazelnut variety “tonda gentile delle Langhe”, white truffles and the region's grappa should be remembered.
These products are the ideal raw material for the sophisticated food and wine culture offered under many guises in the restaurants and trattorie in the area.Hospitality culture has flourished and tourism has taken off.
Neive has enjoyed one of the largest increases in tourism in the Langhe. This has given rise to new activities related to food and wine culture, such as our own “Casetta” at the Castello di Neive.
