Lombardy Wine Region Guide

Savor the Secret of Lombardy: Italy's Uncharted Elegance in Every Glass


Last updated: May 24, 2024


Northern Italy means Piedmont to most wine lovers and little else. Yet the Langhe and Monferrato hills to the southeast of Turin are not the only great vineyards of the country’s industrial powerhouse. To the south and east of Milan are a clutch of dynamic appellations that, until recently, languished in obscurity. Indeed, it is very ironic that glamorous – and achingly trendy – Milan should be at the center of such an unknown region, overshadowed by Piedmont, Tuscany, and even Trentino-Alto Adige. Nonetheless, some superlative wines are being made in Lombardy today: voluptuous reds, structured whites, and exceptional sparkling wines. The northwest has always bowed less to tradition and more to contemporary ideas than the rest of Italy, not least due to its multicultural past. After sampling a bottle of Franciacorta, based exclusively on French grapes, you’ll understand why.
