Piedmont has been producing wine since ancient times, and in addition to Barolo, its productions are famous all over the world, such as Barbera del Monferrato.
The different production areas are united by the type of cultivation of the vines, which takes place almost exclusively on hilly terrain, and which give grapes suitable especially for red wines suitable for aging, but also for white wines, such as Gavi or Cortese, the Erbaluce di Caluso and the Langhe Arneis.
We cannot speak of Piedmontese wines without thinking of Nebbiolo, for many the most noble of the Italian vines, Barolo (great internationally recognized red wine), Barbaresco and Langhe, the homeland of Barolo himself and which, together with Roero and Monferrato, have recently been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The list of the best Piedmontese wineries includes well-known names and others less so, places where the most precious and appreciated Piedmont wines are produced all over the world.
In the ranking of the most famous Italian wineries, those of Piedmont are numerous, starting with the cellars of Barolo and Borgogno to visit, ending with Cantina Fontechiara in Borgomanero, near Novara, whose vineyards are located a few kilometers from the lake Maggiore and Lake Orta.
