Only In Piedmont

Five great things to get excited about in this beautiful region


« Prev Next » 4 of 8

Speaking of wine, Piedmont is certainly famous for their fair share of Italian wines. The aforementioned Barbaresco, a firm yet elegant style of Nebbiolo, has traditionally played the role of Queen to Nebbiolo's king: Barolo.

There are other wines of course, Barbera and Dolcetto most widely known, but local niche players such as Ruchet, Freisa and Pelaverga simply can not be duplicated anywhere. Yes, people have made some very attractive wines with Nebbiolo and Barbera, though I have yet to see any Ruchet, Freisa or Pelaverga from out of the region. As of yet, no one has matched the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco either.
