Want to learn about Piemonte and the home of Nebbiolo? Pull up a chair and have a listen.
Piemonte is in the top two appellations for wine production in Italy…naturally, there is Tuscany and its darling grape Sangiovese and then there is Piemonte. To me, Piemonte is bit more complicated than Tuscany, but the Piedmontese are just as proud and stubborn as the Tuscans.
It has taken awhile for me to appreciate the complexities of Nebbiolo, particularly with the nuances of the appellations buried deep into the landscape.
If you are anywhere near Milan, a quick 1.5 hour drive could land you in the middle of this prolific wine country and take you back 100’s of years.
Learn what makes it such a special place in the world of wine and the passionate history that one assumes when growing grapes and making wine there.
