An itinerant lunch between Montà and Canale, two villages of the Roero, in the heart of the wine hills and close to the cities of Alba, Bra and Asti. A Sunday in the countryside among woods and vineyards enhanced by the characteristic Sunday market in Piazza Vittorio Veneto in Montà and by the periodic antiques market in the historic centre of Canale. Also in Canale it is possible to visit the Enoteca Regionale where it is possible to buy the wines tasted on the walk.
The Porté Disné walk (about 8 km) is an ideal event for a Sunday in the countryside, but it can be connected to further pleasant experiences for a short holiday of two or more days combined with interesting tourist destinations and itineraries in Turin and the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato.
Porté Disné was the dialect expression once used in the Roero and it meant the ritual of bringing lunch to family members in the fields or in the vineyard. Around noon crowds of women and children swarmed from the village with a basket of food to be delivered to husbands, fathers, grandparents, brothers whose work could not suffer the interruption of the return home for the meal.
The event proposed for the last Sunday of May ideally intends to reconnect with this tradition through an "itinerant" lunch along a breath-taking naturalistic path between Montà and Canale.
At the start, the participants will be provided with a wicker basket with a goblet glass, crockery, cutlery and a linen napkin; proceeding along country lanes and paths between the fortresses, they can then stop to taste wines and local dishes offered in the various stages, animated by live folk music, and thus reach Canale, for the final dance.
The return to Montà will be ensured by a shuttle bus service.
