For 10 days in September, the national wine exhibition Douja d’Or is held in Asti. The festival offers visitors the possibility to try a wide range of high quality, prize-winning wines from all over Italy – as well as from the Piedmont region. Wines such as Barbera, Moscato, Barolo and Asti Spumante are available for sampling. The event also offers a large variety of seminars, exhibitions and a large selection of food stalls.
