The “Sagra della fragola e del vino birbet”, held at the end of May, celebrates two of the typical products of Roero: The local strawberries and Birbèt: a sweet, pomegranate-red, partially fermented, festive wine made from the Roero version of the Brachetto grape (Italian brachetto dal grappolo lungo), which hangs from the vine in elongated clusters.
