Approximately half of the red wine made in Piedmont is made from Barbera. A lot of it is just a drink, and to be honest, I’m not too fussed about Barbera. The best examples though, they can really turn your head. Any example you see on my site will be a head-turner. Look for currants and blackberries, liquorice and oak flavours. Fine tannins, plush mouthfeel (like a great Merlot) and mineral, savoury edge on the finish.
An ancient city at the heart of the region and its centre of trade. It is also the region that gives its name to quality Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo.
This Piedmont town is the home of the great Moscato, wonderful Barbera, Dolcetto and of course Nebbiolo. The wines tend to be a bit more obvious and fuller than the cross-town rival Alba. And don’t tend to get as much attention sadly.
Known as one of the greatest wine regions in the world, its name literally means the ‘foot of the mountain’. Piedmont located in the North-Western reach of Italy. There are a lot of parallels drawn between the best wines of Piedmont (Barolo and Barbaresco) and the wines of Burgundy. The region neighbours France and Switzerland with its border defined by the Alps to the north and west and Apennines to the south. These natural defences were used to keep the Ligurians safe from Roman invasions. Luckily it didn’t work forever, as we may not have the wines that we cherish today.

Tasting and Events

I hate stuffy wine events, so whether it’s a casual tasting or a Masterclass over dinner, I promise a fun, interactive and informative occasion… with great wine. Please take a peak below or view all our events here.
It has been a long time between shared drinks for a lot of us. I have not hosted a dinner since October 2019. I am keen to get out and share great food and great company. How about you?
Let’s not muck around either! Straight to the top shelf. Champagne, Sparkling wine, and three courses (plus canapes). I’m excited to be teaming up with Dakota for the first time, the menu they have prepared is going to elevate these wines to a new level. Book your seat here.
