Day 2: Asti and Alba


Day 2

After breakfast we went straight to Canelli to the Gancia wine cellar... yes... you read it right... after breakfast! At 10.00 am (I think it was something like that)! 
Gancia presents itself today as a Leader on the Italian market for the production of sparkling wine.


Let's just move to the pictures (Some were taken by me and some by Helena)





Big wall of bottles :)


Helena posing with the sparkling wine :)


Very old books


These bottles look so tempting




And then there was some sparkling wine tasting....
honestly... I hated it (I tried lots of sparkling wines and this one was in the category of the worst ones)




We were the soul of the trip :P We just couldn't stop laughing!

Asti...

 
 We actually got stuck inside this "castle" and it was so funny! Luckily there was a button on the wall to open the door and we were saved! :))))






 The Cathedral


Don't ask...


Cathedral's inside...amazing right?


 Alba


at the end of the day on the bus... (pictures taken by Lorena)

Professor n.2



...and that was the end of another amazing day... (what happened at night will be our little secret :P)
