Province of Alessandria
The P. Bordino Veteran Car Club organizes the 31st edition of the Bordino Grand Prix from 26-28 May 2023.
After the thirtieth anniversary edition in Portofino, we are ready for a new extraordinary adventure! Tbis year we tour the land of Piedmont, whose landscapes are UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Langhe and Roero. We will take a break from the hectic everyday life – lots of relaxation, gourmet moments at the highest level, immersing ourselves in nature, and reliving history through art and traditions.
The departure is scheduled for Friday afternoon from Alessandria, where you will experience an atmosphere “of yesteryear”, a real party with a huge audience that will cheer on the drivers, lots of entertainment, with participants strictly dressed in period clothing.
The destination of the evening will be a renowned wine cellar in Canale d’Alba. We will taste typical Piedmontese specialties accompanied by wines of absolute excellence, in a very prestigious environment among wooden barrels, a hand-cut stone cellar, in a spectacular underground room with “cotto” tiled walls.
We will stay at the Albergo dell’Agenzia, an old Savoyard residence that has been reborn from a Slow Food idea. Located inside a marvelous neo-Gothic complex, it is a large space comprising the Hotel, the University of Gastronomic Sciences with its academic plaques and the Wine Bank.
Saturday morning is dedicated to culture with a visit to the Castle of Racconigi, one of the Royal Residences of Europe. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with more history and more stories to tell. In particular, it offers perfectly preserved, splendid decorations from different eras and a myriad of furniture expressions of heterogeneous tastes and styles.
In the afternoon we will visit the Wine Bank, one of the most important wine collections globally. Housed here is a collection of the best national labels, selected by a commission of experts who will let us taste some of the most important wines in the world.
Sunday sees a return to Alessandria, visiting Ghilini Palace, an authentic jewel of the Piedmontese Baroque for lunch and the awards.
