Piedmont is known for its stunning scenery, access to the nearby Alps and rich wine heritage. But it’s truly appreciated by those who savor the slow life. Preserving the local ecosystem, its flavor and traditions, and keeping memories and traditions alive. The birthplace of the Slow Food movement is deeply rooted in cultural authenticity, integrity and truly fine eating.
The white truffles, family-owned wineries, local chocolates, regional cheeses. Get an in-depth look at communities who value the process of creating exquisite and exceptional cuisine unmatched by few other places in the world.
From a wine-and-dine getaway to a group of savvy food aficionados, our Piedmont retreat offers authentic immersion and the region's best flavors.
Fall is high tourist season, coinciding with vineyard harvests and the Alba White Truffle Fair in October and November. May thru June is another magical time of year.
More or less wine, a masterclass in truffles and truffle hunting, or perhaps a chef-led exploration of regional delicacies. Or add time in Campania, Tuscany, Rome. The choice is yours.
Natural beauty and luxurious comfort. Our accommodations capture the essence, ethos and hospitality of Piedmont.
Wide windows and spacious balconies make it easy to enjoy Turin from afar. Light-filled rooms and all the modern comforts make it the perfect base to explore the city.
Set near lush woods and the sprawling vineyards of Monterotondo, our boutique villa hotel is the perfect nature-meets-luxury experience, set in a beautifully restored 18th-century farmhouse manor with all the modern comforts. It's also a working vineyard, producing acclaimed Gavi and Barbera wines stored on the grounds in historic cellars you can visit in between visits to the spa or simply wandering the expansive grounds.
Surrounded by green vineyards and luxuriously appointed with antique furniture, a nod to the hotel’s 19th-century roots. It's a warm, inviting place to unwind after a day exploring the region’s vineyards.
