Food & Wine

Home to the Slow Food Movement, Piemonte is a region to discover through top-of-mind products such as the Alba white truffle (candidate in 2017 as Intangible UNESCO Heritage), chocolate and hazelnut, artisanal cheeses, precious rice varieties and a treasure of 42 DOC and 17 DOCG labels wines. Torino, birthplace of aperitif and vermouth, gianduiotti chocolate and grissini breadsticks, the calm “chequered sea” of the rice fields in Vercelli, Novara and Biella, the enchanting Lake Maggiore and Orta, the "vineyard Landscape of Langhe Roero and Monferrato" UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2014, and the ancient fortified villages and castles in the Asti, Alessandria and Cuneo areas: Piemonte is a gourmet favorite destination in any season, home to unique food and wine tradition and savoir-vivre.
