Autumn in Piedmont

Autumn in PiedmontAutumn is a wonderful time in Piedmont, the vines are starting to turn from a wonderful lush green to typical autumnal golden browns and purples – it really is an amazing sight.  

Despite a relatively wet spring it has been a good year for most of the growers in Piedmont. Moscato grapes are already being harvested and it will not be long before ‘Vendemia’ begins for Barbera, Barbabaresco and Barolo grapes.

White TrufflesIt is also the White Truffle season, if you have not tried this delicacy it really should go your list of things to try!  The White Truffle fair starts in the beautiful medieval city of Alba on Sunday 6th October and runs every weekend until November 17th.
