Sitting at the base of the Alps and sharing the border with Switzerland and France, this mountainous northwestern region is unlike many other Italian regions with Mediterranean climate. Piemonte is a cold and snowy region with contrasting hot summers. Hence, wines from this region tend to have a distinctive full-body and are long-aging as a result of grapes growth in the higher altitude, cooler weather and the larger temperature swings from day to night.
Piemonte is known for its small, family-owned boutique wines and there are no less than 18,000 winemakers in this region. Piemonte also has the highest number of DOC and DOCG wines compared with any other region in Italy. Furthermore, Piemonte has been the leading region producing some of the most sought-after Nebbiolo reds which is native to Piemonte; the garnet red, tannin-rich Barolo and Barbaresco. Besides these powerful and prestige reds, there are the sweet and inviting white Moscato spumante that has been the main driving force of Piemonte’s wine economy.
If you enjoy your food and wines, we will be glad to recommend you to a Piemonte wine to enhance your dinning experience.
