Places you would like to spend a few days at sometimes 'sneak up' on you without warning.
An update by Rivetto from Piedmont on awards their wines received in past year made me realize that they welcome guests at their Farmhouse in Sini (near Alba).
With 7 bedrooms, this house offers quiet and great views of the rolling hills and vineyards...and of course guided tours of Rivetto's cellars and on-site wine tastings.
On a clear day you can even see the Alps.
You can stay as little as one night and as long as your savings allow.
