Discovering the territory
Dogliani: a land of wines, handicrafts, ancient fairs, festivals and markets.
This village is located in the center of the south-western Langhe, in a natural valley surrounded by rolling hills, between the Monregalese and the Albese. A land that has always had strong ties with the landscape and even today it shows the characteristic urbanistic physiognomy that history and the hand of man have drawn from its origins.
“Dogliani is considered the capital of the South West Langhe”
The town has pre-Roman origins and it is divided into two urban areas: the village, on the valley floor by the Rea River, a right tributary of the Tanaro River, and the Castle. The village has two well-preserved historic centers: one lively and more commercial and the other one, on the above hill that still preserves, almost intact, its appearance of a medieval fortified village with narrow streets, meandering alleys and the ancient walls .
Besides the two oldest villages within the ancient walls (Borgo and Castello), the village of Dogliani includes today the outlying villages of Airali, San Quirico and San Rocco, built after the war.
