In this Travel Bite, we’re celebrating the contemporary region of Piemonte, also known as Piedmont. Many of you already know it’s capital, Torino/Turin, an incredible city which offers plenty of history, contemporary art, and fantastic coffee culture. Just southeast lies the beautiful area of Le Langhe e Roero, know for its incredible bounty of wine, food and art.
Join me as I explore Monferrato’s bountiful Agliano, best known for its Barbera red wine, the third most distributed Italian wine, nearly five centuries of wine culture thanks to delicious Barbera d’Asti grapes.
