The value of biodiversity
Vineyards, but also woods, fields, hazelnut trees and meadows: all this is the Roero. We live in a territory where the value of biodiversity is uniquely rich. Our woods are home to very special trees and flowers, including rare species of wild orchids. They are home to lots of different wild animals: roe deer, foxes, squirrels, badgers, hedgehogs, owls and numerous other species of birds. The local woods are also known for their production of tuber magnatum pico, the Alba White Truffle, a highly-prized and very aromatic underground fungus which is internationally renowned.
