The region in Northern Italy is undoubtedly one of the best Italian winegrowing regions! For some people, it is the best one, even before the Tuscany. The Piedmont region in northwest Italy is renowned for producing some of the world's most famous and highly regarded wines, including Barolo and Barbaresco, which are made from the Nebbiolo grape.

The famous wine regions in the Piedmont

Some of the best Italian wines come from the regions Langhe, Monferrato and Roero, stretching south-east of Turin, like the famous Barolo, the Barbaresco and the popular Barbera. The beautiful landscapes with its unique combination of cultivation and untouched nature, are listed as UNESCO World Natural Heritage!

The wide plain of the Piedmont is crossed by the river Tanaro, which flows from southwest to northeast, passing Asti and Alba, which lie in the heart of the wine region. The large area is divided into the Monferrato around Asti, the Langhe around Alba and the Roero on the left side of the Tanaro. The vineyards are very diverse, some with a picturesque village up on a hill and some are craggy and steep, like in the Langha Astigiana and in the Roero.

The high season of the wine region is the autumn, when the traditional wine festivals take place in the villages and the mist and fog sweep over the vineyards and spread a special atmosphere. The name of the Nebbiolo grape, from which the Barolo, Barbaresco and Barbera are made, is derived from the autumn fog (ital. nebbia).

The Langhe region

This ancient winegrowing region lies in the heart of the Piedmont and is characterized by long, soft ranges of hills, on which the Nebbiolo grape is cultivated. The villages Alba, La Morra, Novello, Barbaresco, Neive and Barolo made this region popular – they are the elite of the Italian winegrowing regions! The famous grape was already named in the 15th century in the chronicles of La Morra, and today it is the centre of the excellent Barolo wine!

The culinary centre of the region is Alba, where you can enjoy the white gold of Alba, the fine truffles, together with the excellent wines!

The Monferrato region

The vibrant village Asti is an ideal starting point for excursions and trips to the hilly area between Turin and Alessandria. 

The provincial capital is the home to the famous Italian singer Paolo Conte, and the popular sparkling wine Spumante and the red Barbera d’Asti. The yearly Palio di Asti, the famous horserace, takes place here since the 13th century. The Alto Monferrato region is the largest winegrowing district of the Barbera d’Asti and the Barbera del Monferrato.

The Asti Spumante is produced in the areas around Asti, Alessandria and Cuneo and belongs to the most exported Italian wines, next to the Lambrusco and Prosecco! Since 1993, it is a DOCG wine with a guaranteed name of origin and is made of the Moscato grape. Its sweet taste and the low alcohol strength make it perfect to share a glass of wine with your dessert.

The Roero region

This region stretches west of the river Tanaro and is not much visited by tourists, as there are not that famous wines produced here like in the other regions. Although the Nebbiolo grape is cultivated here, too, the soil conditions and the altitudes favour a lighter wine than in the Barolo area of the Langhe region. But the cultivation areas provide excellent white wines, like the light and dry Favorita, or the popular sophisticated Arneis, which is a DOC wine.
