Lower Langa

Antico Podere Tota Virginia

Hotel in Serralunga d’Alba

Sitting down at one of our tables means trying a unique culinary experience.

Originally one of the farmhouses owned by Virginia Ferrero, the hotel-restaurant Tota Virginia still today preserves the typical architecture dating back to the early twentieth century, with exposed bricks and arcades.

Located in a panoramic position in the small town of Baudana di Serralunga d’Alba, it offers a splendid view overlooking the Barolo vineyards, which are dominated by the Castiglione Falletto castle.

The Restaurant

The large windows, round tables, the simple and well-finished decor all create a bright and welcoming atmosphere. The owners enjoy receiving their guests in a homey and comfortable setting, while offering a high quality service.

The outdoor tables are found under the arcades, on the adjacent balcony. While, on the lower floor, the Salone Virginia hosts parties, weddings and meetings of up to 200 people. The portico envelops the garden; a green ‘living room‘ where hotel guests can relax and cool off in the Langa stone pool.

The menu

The Chef, Claudio Cagliero proposes creative recipes, without neglecting the local tradition.

All ingredients are chosen with the utmost care according to what the season has to offer, so that they are always fresh, wholesome and of quality. The dishes were created to enhance the surrounding territory, while paying particular attention to products such as the white truffles from Alba, and Piedmont cheeses.

Guests can choose the dishes found in the ‘à la carte‘ menu or savor the traditional menus and fish.

The Wine List

The modern in-house wine cellar has over 1,500 labels. There’s also a wide choice of local wines from the surrounding territory: Barolo, Barbaresco, Nebbiolo and Barbera; along with the spumanti sparkling wines from the Langhe, Roero and Franciacorta regions. There’s an interesting selection both national and international, including the best Passito wines on the market.

Along with the tasting menu you can choose wine pairings which will allow you to try each dish with the most appropriate label

Dessert, coffee and spirits

There’s a wide variety of sweets; tasty little masterpieces made by the chef, created specifically to satisfy even the most discerning palates.

Coffee is served with little pastries and a rich list of spirits, preserved in the main hall’s stone tower.

The Hotel

The hotel’s 13 rooms are dedicated to people who wish to spend a romantic holiday immersed in the vineyards.

All rooms come with every comfort and the interior design pays attention to the tiniest of details, with elements and decorations that recall the world of wine.
