Autumn in Piedmont
Piedmont is the land of mountains: it is in fact surrounded on three sides by the Alpine chain, which right here includes the highest peaks and the largest glaciers in Italy. It is a region with deep-rooted food and wine traditions that vary from cheeses of all kinds, to bagna cauda, white truffles and the exquisite gianduiotti. Piedmont offers a vast winegrowing panorama that makes room for hills, plains and slopes. Among the most well-known and photographed locations we find: the Langhe, the city of Alba, Barolo and Barbaresco, the Monferrato, the Morra and the Asti area. The Roero area is also full of places and wineries to visit. The great Piedmontese vines are Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto. Piedmont is not only a wine region and in fact among the most productive in the dairy, rice, fruit and vegetable sectors. The goodness of local products has always conquered a large slice of the market, ensuring the quality and traceability of raw materials. In 2014 the Monferrato, Langhe and Roero area was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For many it remains and will always remain a great point of reference for its cultural, food and wine richness and its history so rooted in the land it belongs to, written since the birth of Italy itself.
The wine of Piedmont is among the most prestigious symbols in the world of wine and evokes tradition and passion only by walking through rows and vineyards.
