Historic winery in charming village
Apr 2019 • Couples
As many other reviewers have pointed out, this place dates back to the 16th Century and it has been making wine continuously since then and as a result, has a fascinating history to go with the very interesting wines. This is a small winery and one feels like you are sitting in the living room of an old friend. Make room for buying the wines, you can find clothes anywhere, but wines like these are much rarer.

Too commercial, lack of passion
Nov 2018 • Couples
Nice winery with an amazing ancient cellar builds hundreds of years ago under the building and the garden. It is unique and a MUST if you want to visit an historical handmade traditional CANTINA PIEMONTESE.
Unfortunately, it is in the center of Neive which makes it too busy, too commercial and too crowded. The tasting room is in the entrance of a typical Piemontese house but it lacks of space and calm to really appreciate it. The lady attending us was maybe a bit tired as she was lacking of passion, being too rushed, jumping from one guest to the other without creating the kind of atmosphere and relationship a guest is used to when is visiting a vineyard.
Last but not least, although we spent more than 130 euros, we have been charged with a tasting fee of 10 euros which we never experienced in 7 years in a row going around so many different wine yards in Langa. Poor experience with the exclusion of the cellar…

One of the oldest wineries in continuous operation in the region
Sep 2018 • Couples
Cantina del Glicine doesn't look like much from the street. The tasting room is quite modest, with a large table and communal chairs around it. The mature lady who pontificated over the wine tasting is a funny character and makes you feel welcome. The cellars are amazing. Dating back to the late 1500s, they are built with bricks, and constitute a maze of tunnels underground. The winery produces a 12 different wines and about 4 grappas. Some of the wines have received important awards, such as tre Bicchieri from Gambero Rosso, Italy's answer to Robert Parker. We arrived late in the afternoon, and after tasting wonderful wines at three other locations, so we were less impressed by the wines we were offered at Glicine: they were good, solid wines, but none had a nose, and the finish was short and vanishing.

so much fun
Sep 2018 • Couples
This place is a hoot! We were hosted by 2 elderly women and I felt bad that I ddin't speak Italian, but she did a great job and we had some help from a bilingual customer. As others have noted, the tour of the cellar is worth the price of admission. We loved the natural stone, the mold/fungus, the snails. Did I mention it dates back to 1582? And then there's the cats, beloved by the women and ever present. The wines were quite good and even though we didn't have room in our suitcases, we bought some anyway!

Don’t miss it, it’s all worth it
Sep 2018 • Couples
The cellar is quite an experience, the oldest in Italy still producing wine. The wine tasting is accompanied by different types of cheese and hazelnuts. It costs 10€, well worth it. The lady was friendly and welcoming. I believe one shouldn’t miss il Glicine.

Amazing
Jul 2018
If you've been doing something since 1582, you must be doing it right. Short tour of the ancient wine cellar (hence, 'cantina,') and a lovely, unrushed tasting in the sunny, inviting tasting room. BTW cats factor heavily in the signage and labeling for Glicine which sets well with me (being a cat lover.) I think we sampled 5 or 6 wines and all were amazing. Highly recommend.

Superb - wholly recommended for all groups
Aug 2018 • Family
Wonderfully family run place.
Welcoming, friendly and good wine!
Highly recommend - our youngish family (8, 10, 12 years) were looked after and made most welcome.

(Ignore the 2 negative reviews - one clearly from a commercial tour operator looking to make money from the hospitality of a family run enterprise and didn’t like being caught out!)

Magnificent cellars from the 16th century
Jul 2018 • Couples
We got a nice tour in the magnificent cellars from the 16th century and a tasting of their range of wines. Very nice Barbera d’Alba and Barbaresco. Also nice grappas from their pwn vinaccia.

Friendly Organic Winery with historical cellar
Apr 2018 • Couples
Glicine has a cellar dated back 500 years and is the oldest in the area. We made an appointment to have a cellar tour plus tasting. The winemakers and nonna are extremely hospital, we throughly enjoyed our visit and their wine. We purchased two bottles of their Barbaresco and the tasting fee was waived. What a deal! Lovely town it is located, really lucked back atmosphere for some strolling around.
