Piedmont is the country's westernmost region and home to some of Italy's most prestigious vineyards. With over 50,000 hectares of vineyards and over 3 million litres of wine produced each year, this region has much to offer. The geography of Piedmont allows the vines to grow at the foot of the mountains, sheltered from the wind, with good exposure and mild temperatures. These conditions have allowed certain local grape varieties to establish themselves in the region and make the reputation of Piedmontese wines. Nebbiolo in particular, this popular, noble and ancient grape variety is at the origin of various appellations: Barolo, Barbaresco, Gattinara and Ghemme. These top-quality, value-for-money wines have been making a name for themselves on the finest tables since the Middle Ages, thanks to the complex flavours and a great ageing potential. We have selected some of the best wines from this beautiful region of Piedmont for you to try.
