Piedmont is known to most people as the land of wine and fine cuisine, and renowned for its many diverse and beautiful landscapes. This part of Italy is largely unspoilt by tourism and is in many ways a true Italy, rooted in agriculture and fiercely proud of its culinary heritage.
Food festivals take place nearly every weekend, celebrating the regional produce of local farmers and vintners who are proud to offer you a real taste of the local gastronomic culture. The stunning Piedmontese food is typically rustic, with a strong French and Swiss influence due to the region’s location in the north-western corner of Italy.
One of the most famous and tasty specialities from Piedmont and considered their regional treasure, is the pungent White Truffle – more delicate and aromatic than the more common black version and highly prized by true gourmets.
Piedmont also happens to be home to some of Italy's most prestigious wines, including the magnificent Marchesi di Barolo. We would be happy to arrange wine-tasting and private tours at some of the top-quality vineyards of the region, and for the brave-hearted, there are many well-respected Grappa distilleries in the area!
