During Nizza è Barbera, the town of Nizza Monferrato becomes a great wine capital, where visitors can taste NIZZA D.O.C.G. and all the other Barbera D.O.C.G. and D.O.C. wines from Piedmont, face to face with the people who make them!
Meet over 70 producers of the finest Barbera d’Asti at the Foro Boario in Nizza Monferrato: over 400 labels presented for tasting, included in the price of admission, served and explained directly by the winemakers. The Barbera Forum is the heart of Nizza è Barbera!
Take part in the special Nizza is Barbera tastings, at Palazzo Crova – home of the Regional Enoteca of Nizza Monferrato – and at the Ex Chiesetta Trinità: these are real moments of in-depth discussion with experts in the field.

THERE’S A PARTY IN TOWN
Spend a pleasant evening in Nizza Monferrato old town! The shops will be open and visitors can enjoy a range of local dishes and specialities as they stroll around town or sit comfortably in specially organised areas.

There’ll also be a chance to taste specialities prepared specially to celebrate our favourite red: have you ever tried Barbera ice-cream?
