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.
