Wine hotels in Piedmont
For some people, the true home of Italian wines is the Piedmont region. It has more DOCGs (the highest classification of Italian wines) than any other region within Italy. Piedmont is often likened to Burgundy because of its numerous small-scale, family wineries, and their demandingly high standards. As you’ll see from our guide, some of the best wine hotels of the Piedmont are around the hills of Le Langhe.
.This is where the majestic red tannic wines Barolo, Barbaresco and Barbera d’Asti are produced and where the Nebbiolo grape is revered. Amongst the white wines, sparkling Moscato d’Asti and Asti Spumante are the most famous.
Wine hotels in Piedmont for food-lovers
- Overlooking the vineyards around Asti, Castello di Villa is a raspberry-pink castle where elegant rooms have open beams and four-poster beds; some have hand-painted murals. It has an excellent wine list and menus of locally sourced food plus it’s within striking distance of around 50 Michelin-starred restaurants.
- Surrounded by its own vineyards, and with another exceptional wine list, Agriturismo Villa Tiboldi is a country house set in a dreamy location to the north of Alba. Enormous bedrooms have rugs on polished floorboards, lavish drapes and four-poster beds. The fine-dining restaurant is set amongst exposed brick walls and huge arched windows.
