Nestled between the snow-capped Alps and the sun-soaked Mediterranean coast of northwest Italy is the stunning landscape of Piedmont, one of the finest wine regions of the world. This gastronomical hub so deeply steeped in food and wine culture, gave us the three B’s: bold and structured Barolo and Barbaresco made with the region’s flagship Nebbiolo grape, along with easy-going, cherry-scented Barbera. But it has also given us inky Dolcetto, sparkling Moscato d’Asti and crisp, citrussy Gavi.
The wines of Piedmont epitomise the “dolce vita” spirit, offering a refreshing no-fuss generosity through a diverse array of styles. Pair them with your favorite comfort-food classics, like an earthy risotto with Porcini mushrooms and truffle or tender beef braised with hearty root vegetables.
