Taste of Piedmont
January 9 – January 22
The Piedmont region in Italy borders Switzerland and France and is true to the meaning of its name – foot of the mountains. The weather in Piedmont is ideal for growing wine and where the Nebbiolo grape thrives – producing two of the most iconic wines, Barolo and Barbaresco. To go along with the powerful and tannin-heavy wine, Piedmont is known for rich and savory food such as truffles and slow-braised beef. Piedmont food and wine are perfect for a cold winter day!
