The food and wine scene is one of the main reasons to visit Piedmont. Whether you are after a 3* Michelin restaurant experience, or an authentic osteria with simple, yet mouth-watering fare, Piedmont has something for everyone. Some of the other tasty things on offer include red wine, truffles, hazelnuts, peaches, nougat, gorgonzola and chocolate.
The most famous wine areas are the Langhe and Roero; the Langhe produces two of the most iconic red wines, the Barolo and Barbaresco (made from the Nebbiolo grape), and the Roero region (a more recent addition to the Piedmont wine-tasting map) is known for its excellent white Arneis wine (also a Nebbiolo blend).
If you’re a ‘foodie’, then you may have heard of the annual White Truffle Festival. However, you can enjoy an exquisite food and wine scene year-round (plus many different coloured truffles). We’ve personally tasted our way around the region so that we can share these hidden gems with you.
