Piedmont/Piedmonte sits at the foot of the Alps bordering France and Switzerland, known for its ski resorts and of course home of the Fiat car but I think if you asked anyone what they think of when you mention Piemonte surely they will say wine and truffles.  Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera D’Alba and Gavi are absolutely world famous wines so if you haven’t tried them hurry and go get yourself a bottle or two. Apparently even Pliny the Elder celebrated the wines of this region in his work, Naturalis Historia.  So raise your glass to Pliny and enjoy the refinement of this region.
