Highly sought after and considered superior to French varietals, the allure of the Piemontese white truffle has enticed fans from across the globe to flock to Alba and take part in the festival’s many gourmet attractions. Visitors can sample and buy truffle products, celebrated local wines such as Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Barbera, Favorita, Arneis and Moscato, local cheeses and charcuterie, and other regional delicacies, while enjoying exciting, traditional events such as the festival of the flag and the Palio degli Asini (donkey race).
