From Roman outpost to a gourmet destination: Baldichieri to taste


Baldichieri d’Asti stands in a hilly position in the north of Astigiano.

It is about 12 km from Asti, the provincial capital.


Thanks to the discovery of an ancient tombstone in the Vaj locality in 1941, historians believe that Baldichieri was a Roman outpost as early as the 1st century AD.

On the site now occupied by the municipal cemetery once stood the medieval castle of Baldichieri d'Asti.

The castle and village were destroyed in 1553 by the French.

Home to important working settlements, Baldichieri d'Asti is known for the excellent quality of its meats and wines, including Barbera d'Asti and Freisa d'Asti.
