Historic Charts for Travel Planning in the Langhe, Piemonte

What is the weather and climate like in the Langhe province of Piemonte, a famouse wine and truffle region? The historic climate charts below will give you an idea.

Alba sits in the north of the Langhe wine growing region in Piemonte, known for fall truffles, wines and castles.

Cold and temperate is how the experts describe the climate of the Langhe, although it's gotten warmer recently. The spring brings rather unpredictable rains, which taper off in summer and continue until fall, when precipitation drops as winter moves in.

"The various micro-climates created by the hills and valleys of the Langa influenced by the continental climate of the entire area, stimulates particularly fine and aromatic nuances in the wines. During the summer, the difference between the heat of day and cool nights increase the aromas in the skins of the grapes and ensure the fascinating variety which is the hallmark of this region’s structured and complex wines, perfect for ageing. The tannins typical of these grand wines also contribute to their constant fascination." ~ the Terroir
