Ideas for your food and wine tours Piedmont

Tastings, cookery courses, food and wine tours, even tailor-made ones

Piedmont is the land of mountains, surrounded on three sides by the Alps. Against the backdrop of the Alps lie stretches of water and rice fields, ancient farmsteads, hillsides planted with vineyards and dotted with villages and castles. The first stop in Piedmont is Turin to admire the Egyptian Museum, the Holy Shroud and the famous Mole Antonelliana, which dominates the cityscape. The Royal Palace of Venaria Reale is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with the other Royal Residences of the Savoy family.

The Piedmont shore of Lake Maggiore is full of renowned resorts, such as Arona with its 17th-century colossal statue of San Carlo, Stresa and the Borromean Islands, with their accommodation, villas and gardens. Remember these locations for a Piedmont food and wine tour dedicated to lake fish dishes.

There are many Piedmont food and wine delicacies worth trying! Piedmont cuisine means traditional foods that cannot be missed, so much so that it is considered the region of choice for food and wine tourism.

Piedmont’s most characteristic food and wine specialities are fondue and bagna cauda: sauces that enhance the use of Alba truffles and raw vegetables. Also exceptional to discover during a Piedmont food and wine tour are braised beef with Barolo wine and the wide selection of Piedmontese cheeses: tome, robiola, bruss from the Langhe, and gorgonzola from Novara. Piedmont produces some of the finest Italian red wines: Barolo, Barbaresco, Gattinara, Ghemme, Nebbiolo, Freisa, Grignolino, Barbera, Dolcetto. In short, you will be spoilt for choice for your Piedmont food and wine experiences and itineraries.
