Piedmont Wine Dinner @ Obika

Piedmonte wine dinner at Obika 

An Evening in Piedmont

Piedmont is one of the great wine regions in Italy. This wine region, located in Northern Italy, is known for its Barolos, and Barbarescos, but also other Nebbiolo based wines such as Gattinara and Ghemme.  Along with the Nebbiolo based wines, the regions is known for Barbera, Dolcetto, Grignolino, and Brachetto among others.  

As famous and popular as Piedmonte's reds are, the region also has great whites such as Roero Arneis, Gavi di Gavi and let us not forget the most well-known sparkling of Italy - Asti.  

Piedmonte is one of the biggest wine regions in Italy and has 16 DOCG's and 42 DOCs.

    It was great. Food was excellent. Loved the presentation of the menu given by the chef. That menu was truly a work of love and commitment to traditional Piedmont cuisine.

    Looks good, but there is also a dinner that same night at Drago Centro (downtown LA) featuring some high end Barolo and Brunello.
