Coming from Gallo Grinzane, follow signs to Sinio and, when you get to the roundabout, not enter into the village, but go straight following signs to Albaretto; after three twists, always going up, you find a small chapel on your right and immediately our farm Cascina Sant’Eufemia.
Sinio is a small medieval village lying on the hills in the Langhe, about 15 km from Alba. In our region, there are a lot of special events during the year: the most known is “The Truffle season” in October which attracts thousand of tourists from all over the world! We have been celebrating it for more than 20 years. But we find more amusing the celebration in Sinio, every year from the 10th to the 20th of Agoust: every night some theatrical or musical performances are organized. On the 14th there is "La notte delle Masche" (the witches' night) which is the most important event for our village: on this occasion about 2000 people enjoy themselves among magicians, fortune-tellers, witches, jugglers.
All things concern the magic theme: there are a lot of people dressing as witches, with big hats and black clothes. All around the village you can see stalls selling pumpkins, brooms, potions and a lot of other things normally used by witches. People can also taste typical food and wines offered by people in the village.
The economy is predominantly agricultural and done by small family run farms; the area has retained the character and soul of the “past” Langa, between the area of excellent wines - Barolo in particular - and the Alta Langa, economically poorer but rich in the variety of the landscape and crops, sheep and goat milk cheese, in nearness to the sea...
Historical architectural famous cities such as Torino, Asti, Alba, Mondovì, the sabaudian residences of Racconigi, Stupinigi and Casotto can easily be reached in about one hour by car.
