Epic Europe

PIEDMONT

Italy

Vineyards, castles, white truffles & warm hospitality, what more could you want?

 

From Torino to the south, the Piedmont Region is home to some of Italy’s finest wines, as well as the culinary traditions that the Slow Food Movement was founded upon. Famous wines like Barbera, Barolo, and Barbaresco all hail from here, in vineyards surrounding the countless medieval hilltop villages all connected by beautiful winding roads – which are perfect to discover the region by on bikes.

 

Beginning in Torino, the city that once led Europe in modernized industrialism at the height of the Fiat years, you can explore the daily markets (Europe’s largest and longest-running), the colonnaded streets, aperitivo bars and restaurants, or museums. But once you head outside of the city, towards Alba or Asti, the true Piemonte reveals itself. Risotto fields give way to hill towns surrounded by vines, and the pastel landscape that is best explored by fall, when the grape harvest is in full swing, and the aroma of truffle season begins to fill the air.

 

We have hand-picked a number of accommodation partners in Piemonte, ranging from classic hotels housed in former Palazzos, to rustic cascina-style farmhouse agriturismos. And our relationships with vineyards, restaurateurs, and local producers (and even trifulau, or truffle hunters) ensure that you will see the local side of Piemonte, tasting the best that the region can offer.

  • "I have done trips in the Alps and surrounding regions with Epic Europe for the past 4 years, and every one has been unique and surpassed the last. The experiences that they deliver due to their personal relationships are a window into the real life in these incredible locations, and they share these friendships with us." - K.B., CT USA
  • “The team at Epic Europe created the most incredible trip for us, where everything came together seamlessly, and we never had to think about what came next - it just magically happened as if it was meant to be. That takes real talent, and they make it look easy." - B.N., WY USA
  • "Our family spent last Christmas in Zermatt on a bespoke Epic Europe ski trip. The special thought and care that they put into our holiday made it our best yet." - L.M.; CA USA
  • "Hiking in the Alps has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn't sure that a typical trip was my style. Epic Europe designed a custom route for our group, staying in the best little inns and hotels, and we felt like we had the trails to ourselves. I will come back again and again to explore new trails with their guides every year that I can!" - R.B., NY USA
  • "Epic Europe has coordinated several corporate events for us over the past 5 years, and I cannot imagine a more professional operation to handle all of the details. From a team-building event for 50 people in a 17th-century castle atop a mountain pass, to marketing conferences and catalog shoots, their knowledge of the best locations in the Alps is second-to-none, and they are as good as it gets at being creative." - E.P., Lugano CH
  • "I would have to say that Verbier and Zermatt might be the best places I have ever ridden a mountain bike, and I couldn't imagine going without the help of Epic Europe's guides. It was a dream trip for sure." - B.S., PA USA
  • "Epic Europe's custom road biking trip that they put together for my buddy's bachelor party was great - the right combination of killer rides, great hotels, and outstanding restaurants. Great guides, and overall a perfect trip." - A.S., London UK
  • "A day of heliskiing in Italy culminated with a sunset run off the Breuil saddle of the Matterhorn - one of the most thrilling runs of my life - and we left our tracks in a place where they remained for a week afterward, reminding us of the best day of skiing in our life!" - WG, CT USA
