Italy: Piedmont


The Region

Piedmont offers the highest number of Classified DOC and DOCG wines in Italy and is home to two of Italy's most esteemed wines: Barolo and Barbaresco made from the Nebbiola grape. The most popular wine for daily consumption is Barbera. Piedmont also gives the wine world Moscato, the sweet and now very trendy dessert wine and Asti Spumante, Italy's most famous sparkling wine, now simply Asti since gaining its DOCG status. If you go in the fall, a Truffle Hunt. And don’t miss the Wine Bank which is dedicated to preserving traditional values and quality of cuisine. It also acts as an historic repository for 50,000 bottles of Italian wines. And, since you are sooo close, our Chairman begs you to visit Milan for shopping the trendiest fashions in Italy if not all of Europe as well as a not-to-be-missed viewing of Leonardo DaVinci's ‘Last Supper’.
