Piedmont (or Piemonte) means at the foot of the mountains, which is an apt description for this region that stretches across valleys encircled by the French, Italian and Swiss Alps.
The Langhe as Piemonte’ s most renowned wine region is known, is a wine lover’s dream and there will be opportunities to visit top wine estates such as Giacomo Conterno, Angelo Gaja, Bartolo Mascarello, Vietti, Chiara Boschis, Sandrone Luciano, Bruno Giacosa, La Spinetta, Renato Ratti and many more! Visits to other notable wine-producing zones such as Asti, Gavi, Roero and Gattinara will complete your full-immersion Piemonte experience.
Through in-depth, professionally led seminars you will learn about the characteristics of the soil, details and properties of the main grape varietals and about the art of winemaking. Wine tasting methodology, proper serving techniques, food pairing and proper terminology will all be part of the indoctrination with many opportunities to test your newly acquired skills.
