Wine also plays an important role in the local economy, with several red wine DOCs (denominations): Barbera d’Asti, Barbera del Monferrato, Grignolino, Freisa, Malvasia, Ruchè. White denominations are Cortese, Moscato and Chardonnay.
Olives have been reintroduced recently, to renew a tradition dating back to the nineteenth century, yielding a delicate, fruity extravirgin olive oil.
Worth mentioning is also bread, backed in small craft bakeries.
