The Langhe  is a hilly area in the province of Cuneo in Piedmont, northern Italy.  It is in these lands that one of the world's finest wines is produced, the Barolo. It is also famous for its cheeses, and truffles—particularly the white truffles of Alba.

La Morra is a town in a beautiful panoramic position, with views of the Langhe and Alps with a medieval layout. In Piazza Castello there is a spectacular viewpoint of the surrounding hills. The parish church of S. Martin, the municipal towers of 173 and a Baroque style bell tower, are worth visiting. In the Annunziata hamlet there is the Museum Ratti dei Vini di Alba, relative to the history and techniques of oenology and viticulture.

Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato became a UNESCO WHS in 2014
