Piedmont has a wealth of little-known traditional varieties. Time to discover them! The wine region Piedmont in north-western Italy is best known for its powerful Nebbiolo wines Barolo and Barbaresco, its fruity Barbera and sweet Moscato wines. But the region has much more to offer. Piedmont hosts an impressive range of indigenous (autochthonous) grape varieties that have not yet reached international recognition.

BKWine Magazine’s guest writer Sara Nässén went out to discover some of these little-known gems and share her discoveries with you: Piedmont’s treasure of lesser-known native grape varieties.
