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.
