Casa Cayega 2019

Casa Cayega is the celebration held by Tenuta Carretta in honor of their most “pop” and lively Roero Arneis: the Cayega. A day opened to everybody, young and old, with lots of activities, music, food and wine: see you on Sunday 29th of September in Piobesi d’Alba!

  1. Hands in the vineyard

One of the most fun and interactive activities offered is “Winegrower for a day”! At 11am and at 3pm there is a chance to join in the harvesting of the golden bunches of arneis directly from the rows of Tenuta Carretta. Gloves, shears and all other tools will be provided, to guarantee an authentic “vigneron” experience!

Free admission, reservations are advised: contact +39 0173 619119 or email

  1. A walk through the vines

Have you ever dreamed of walking through the beautiful vineyards of Roero but have no idea where to go? Tenuta Carretta has designed “Grape’s Road”, the first vine-trekking trail that you can roam on your own, thanks to the available audio guides which can be downloaded on your phone. The trail will be opened from the morning until late in the evening.

Free admission

  1. An unforgettable picnic

A day in honor of great wines is worthy of an excellent pairing. Flavio Costa, the Michelin-starred chef of the restaurant “21.9”, will be preparing picnic baskets filled with gourmet delicacies. Baskets good for couples or for families, filled with “stellar” sandwiches, wine, water, drinks and dessert, will be available. Lunch can be consumed among the beautiful vineyards of Tenuta Carretta (booking is advised, from 11am to 3pm).

  1. Verticale Cayega

If you thought that the Arneis was a wine to be drunk only when it is young, it’s time for you to change your mind. You can try it at “Verticale Cayega” scheduled at 5pm: a new and authentic way to discover the greatness of the Roero Arneis, a local white of Roero able to resist the test of time.
