Located in Northwest Italy, Piedmont has been called “Italy’s Burgundy” because of its many small, family-owned wineries with picturesque hillside vineyards that are often wrapped in fog during the fall months. Piedmont produces many styles of wine but is famous around the world for producing perhaps the “king” and “queen” of Italian red wines: Barolo and Barbaresco – made exclusively from the Nebbiolo grape. In addition to the regal Barolo and Barbaresco, an increasing number of innovative producers are experimenting with making red blends, such as Nebbiolo blended with Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, or Cabernet Franc – all wines prized for their great aging potential, which can reach 10-20 years, usually longer. The region also produces elegant white wine varietals, such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
