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.
The Piedmont region, particularly around Alba, is also famed for its heady - and expensive - white truffles. Choose to visit one of these wine hotels in Piedmont during the autumn harvest season and you will be in for a true gourmet feast.
