🍷Getting Lost in the Hills of Piedmont…

Snow-capped mountains and rolling green hills are lined with row after row of vineyards.  Castles stand sentinel on the hilltops, it feels a bit like being in a landscape from a medieval adventure novel.

🍷This is Italy’s largest wine region, located at the foot of the Alps in the region aptly named, Piedmont…

🍷In 2014, the Langhe, Roero and Moferrato wine areas were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site for their centuries of fine wine production, unparalleled beauty and sustainable practices.

Quite a large variety of grapes are grown here but the most well known are: Barbera produces a very easy to drink red wine with a nice balance of tannins and acidity; Nebbiolo from which a variety of wines are made — especially Barbaresco and Barolo, known respectively as the queen and king of red wines.

Moscato, which produces a sweet, sparkling, white wine that is popular as a dessert or brunch wine. And Arneis, a very floral white wine grape that produces an extremely pleasant wine that is also made in the methode champenoise by some producers.

A visit to the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato area is an unforgettable wine and foodie adventure. Not to mention a rich cultural experience.

Book a room in one of the small hill towns, rent a car, and get lost in the hills of Piedmont’s wine country.
