Because no great love story ever started with a salad.
Here we go again. It’s almost Valentine’s Day and you still haven’t thought of a gift. Ads follow you wherever you go, a riot of perfume, jewelry, makeup, and accessories of dubious taste. But you’re looking for something different, something to share with your significant other. “A trip?” Too hard to coordinate vacation times. “Dinner?” Too cliché. “A winery visit with a wine tasting?” Now, there’s something you don’t do every day.
Coppo Winery in Canelli, the center of Moscato d’Asti and Asti DOCG production in Piemonte, has a great idea for a Valentine’s Day gift for your sweetheart this year. Over Valentine weekend—February 13 and 14—their Underground Cathedrals (recognized in 2014 as a UNESCO World Heritage) will open its doors to all couples, with a small giveaway. If you come as a couple for the Classic Tour, your partner’s tour and tasting will be complimentary (see more info on the tour here).
Because, of course, no great love story ever started with a salad.

A one-of-a-kind wine tasting
It will be a unique occasion. Not only will you get to discover the Coppo wine cellars, which go deep underground (over 40 meters), but you will also taste one of their most prestigious Metodo Classico wines. Only for St. Valentine’s Day weekend, all couples who visit can taste (among the other wines included in the tour) the Rosé Clelia Coppo, a sparkling wine that is obtained using the “ancestral” method.
To accompany the Clelia Coppo wine, you will also be served Moscatelli cookies, made from Moscato Moncalvina and produced specially for the Coppo winery by Ciardi, a historical bakery of Cori that has been baking sweets and goods by hand for three generations.
