FOMO (Fear of Missing Out): Four too-short days in Piemont

DexterDog | Oct 15, 2012 04:59 AM


We have 4 nights (3 full days) in Piemont, en route from the Veneto to the Haut Savoie region in France.

Day 1 (a Monday), we will reserve a table for a relaxing lunch at Del Belbo Da Bardon, San Marzano di Oliveto. (Thanks to allede’s recommendation for another poster seeking a lunch hook en route to the Piemont region.)

We’ll be based at a B&B near Cocconato and are planning to spend the first full day in the Monferrato area and the next two days in the area near Alba.

I’ve done a heap of research on this Board and elsewhere (including using the Red Guide on-line) and am now in on overwhelming state of FOMO. This is especially the case given the quality:price ratio seems seriously reasonable given our exchange rate and eating in Sydney (recently ranked as one of the most expensive places to live in the world... sigh)

Based on eating one multi-course meal a day – which is probably all we’ll be able to manage without requiring medical intervention – I’m thinking that we’ll do the following:
-- Gener Neuv for dinner on Day 2.
-- Al Castello for lunch on Day 3, because it’s co-located with the the Enoteca Regionale Piemontese
-- Osteria Veglio for lunch on Day 4, which is the day we will visit the Enoteca del Roero and, after lunch, Neive.

Any other suggestions greatly appreciated....
