Piedmont

Home to some of the best red wines in the world

Piedmont is a region comprised mostly of large mountains which filter down into smaller hills, perfect for wine-making! The region is at the foot of the Alps (literally the name means 'at the foot of the mountain') and many of the locals speak Franco-Provençal since it is so close to south-eastern France.
If you've ever heard (or tasted) a Barolo, Barbera or Barbaresco, this is the region known for these big, Italian reds. For those with a more sensitive palate, do not be disturbed; some of the finest and most intricately designed whites are also found in this region. To explore all of these, travel along the “Strada del Barolo e grandi vini di Langa,” the Wine Route. Piedmont is also known for its honey. Along with pleasing your appetite, this region will please your eyes - there are castles galore each boasting a unique history. The capital, Turin (Torino) was home to the winter Olympics not long ago, for this region is known for it's incredible skiing and snowboarding.

  • Das Piemont ist eines meiner absoluten Lieblingsregionen. Die Menschen brauchen zwar ein wenig zum Auftauen, aber wenn man sie dann kennengelernt hat, dann bleiben sie Freunde fürs Leben. Die Weine sind unvergleichlich, vor allem die Top Barolo und Barbaresco Weine. Besonders zur Trüffelezeit ist das Piemont eine Reise wert. Der Duft des weissen Trueffels ist dann überall zu spüren. Köstlich! Mehr Tipps unter www.bellabionda.de
