Reading time in

Happy Cayega Hour

As we saw in the previous post, from 15 to 18 September Tenuta Carretta celebrates the 555 years of its history with a series of public and private events that will also involve the city of Alba.

In the capital of the Langhe on Thursday 15 September at 6.45 pm, the recital of the soprano Maria Agresta will be staged at the Church of San Domenico. An event open to all citizens who will reveal to the public the extraordinary voice of a soprano of international standing.


The culmination of the celebrations for the 555 years of Tenuta Carretta will be Casa Cayega, scheduled for Sunday 18 September 2022. Casa Cayega is now an eagerly awaited event, in the usual harvest appointment format that creates an extraordinary moment of encounter between Tenuta Carretta and wine lovers . An event open to the public, a tribute to one of the winery’s iconic wines, Roero Arneis Docg Cayega, whose pleasantness and attitude to accompany the whole meal have made it a symbol of conviviality.

The Casa Cayega party will take place as usual in Piobesi d’Alba, between the cellar, courtyard and vineyards and will see the succession of immersive activities in the universe of Tenuta Carretta: vine trekking on Grape’s Road, gourmet picnic and / or lunch at curated by the starred chef Flavio Costa, the inauguration of the Quattro Quarti photographic exhibition, workshops for children, visits to the cellar and guided tastings, aperitifs and snacks at sunset with the Happy Cayega Hour, as well as the now famous Vignaiolo format for a day in collaboration with the Wine Tourism Movement, which takes visitors among the vineyards of the Estate to let them try the experience of the grape harvest.

The event will be open to the public and free admission. Some activities have a limited number, so reservations are required by writing to or by calling 0173.619119 int. 4 during office hours.
