Piedmont Wine Region Guide

Discover Piedmont: Italy's Hidden Gem for Wine Lovers and Culture Enthusiasts

EXPLORE ALL OUR GUIDES TO THE BEST ITALIAN WINE REGIONS

Last updated: June 20, 2024

Introduction

Described as the “new Tuscany” by well-traveled sybarites, Piedmont offers a myriad of indigenous grape varieties and regional appellations, most famously Barolo and Barbaresco. Yet this is merely the beginning: one of Italy’s finest dry whites, Cortese di Gavi, is made in this dramatic landscape, not to mention Barbera d’Asti, Moscato d’Asti, Dolcetto and the esoteric Arneis. The magic happens close to the French border in northwestern Italy – Piedmont translates as “at the foot of the mountains.” Indeed, its vineyards are shadowed by the spectacular Alps, which almost encircle this undulating region, providing ample winter skiing and snowboarding opportunities. Meanwhile, the area’s capital, Turin, is a historic city rich in diversions; many of Italy’s best restaurants – and wine bars – are found here. No one could accuse Piedmont of lacking viticultural, gastronomic, or cultural excitement. See for yourself.
