Piemonte is a hidden gem for landscape, food, wine & its proximity to Liguria, France. Still relatively unknown, this region of Northern Italy offers magnificent sceneries paired with also magnificent wines and flavors. With over 160 types of cheese and 45 different D.O.C. wines, you can say that Piemonte is a wine and cheese lover's paradise, producing Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbara and Dolcetto, as well Asti Spumanti, a typical of Christmas celebrations. Its Langhe region has become a UNESCO World Heritage Site and righteously so: its ancient villages and castles, the gentle slopes, all this invites to hiking and truffle hunting, (the world’s famous white truffle of Alba), its rows of vineyards, forming perfect geometric shapes invite to endless wine tastings.
