One of the greatest wine regions in the world. Its name literally means the ‘foot of the mountain’. Piedmont is located in the North Western reach of Italy. First amongst the region are the Nebbiolo based Barolo and Barbaresco. But great red wines are also made from Barbera, and Dolcetto. Whites from Arneis can be engaging and real Moscato is actually quite a lovely drink.

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. But luckily it didn’t work forever, as we may not have the wines that we cherish today.


Famously producing long lived red wines which are light of colour, but abundant in tannin from Barolo, Barbaresco and various other local wines. This is the variety that defines the region. Typical flavours include: Tar, roses, anise, cherry, blackberry and truffle.
