Piedmont Wine Tours- For Wine Aficionados

Posted by Italianna Food & Wine Tours on March 6th, 2020

If you are an avid wine enthusiast and plan to visit to Italy, your trip is incomplete without a visit to Piedmont, a lovely region in northwest Italy. It is a scenic place with the Alps in the background the place beckons a large number of tourists who enjoy savoring excellent cuisines and wines amidst nature’s marvels. Besides architectural marvels dotting the city landscape, it is also famous for its amazing wineries.

After Sicily, Piedmont is the second largest region in Italy. This region is known for its quality DOCs and DOCGs in Italy. This region is still relatively unknown to would-be explorers despite its impressive pedigree. Many tourists visiting this area tend to visit a small part, the Langhe, home to Barbaresco and Barolo wines. These are considered some of the greatest wines in the world. Despite its fame, these two wines combined form just 3 percent of total wine production of this region. There are several things to do in Piedmont besides visiting famous wineries. There are museums, impressive buildings that are fine examples of architectural splendor and more. 

Tourists who first visit Piemonte, fall in love with it and normally come back. The Langhe region is located in Piedmont’s southwest corner and can be reached by train to Alba and Asti. However, many tourists prefer the freedom of a car to enjoy the scenic countryside in the wine valley. Rent a car and enjoy the ride to this region traversing hilly country roads. 

Many people who are aware of Barbaresco and Barolo as popular wine regions love exploring family-run operations, which are fairly small but still insist on taking appointmentsrather than dropping in. Visitors planning to just wing it may be disappointed because there are very few walk-in tasting rooms here and they might have to give it a miss in the absence of prior appointments. Several companies organize Piedmont wine tours and help with appointments.

When traveling in groups with family or friends, you can choose any of the luxury tours in Piedmont that can take you on wonderful a tour of the wineries, explaining the intricacies of the complex wines. It is important to note here that every winery visit may take from 1.5 to 3 hours making it quite a different experience from one winery to the other. The family running the operation is quite passionate about the work that has been handed over to them from generation to generation. 

The best time to go for Piedmont wine tours in Barbaresco and Barolo is, in fact, any time of the year and largely depends on the experience one would like to enjoy. The high season starts from May to December while January to April months are offseason. The tourist season is at its all-time high during the fall season. Producers get busy after September during harvest and white truffle season so it is important to have a plan to have the best experience possible.
