The Barbero company is housed in a historic building in the heart of Asti. The company, which was founded in Mombercelli d'Asti, is mainly known for the production of the artisanal crumbly torrone and for its fine chocolate. Five generations ago, in 1883, Melchiorre Barbero first gained permission to produce "Torroni e Noasetti". Nowadays the same family continues to run the business. When we arrive, we’ll be taken to the factory where we’ll be shown the old traditional machinery and some old photos showing how the factory used to be. Barbero still makes different types of nougat and chocolates, and we’ll enjoy a delicious tasting.
