Biking tours in Piedmont

Ride along the barolo wineyards
or challenge the alps!

Welcome to Piedmont

As with a glass of old Barolo the senses of native condescension are suddenly reawakened in the bitterest souls.

Carlo Emilio Gadda

Italian writer and poet
Without Piedmont, without its history, its tradition and culture, Italy couldn't exist as we know it today. So, if you want to find out what Italy tastes like, you have to visit this extraordinary land at least once. Piedmont is known for being an area with an extraordinary cultural heritage where the passing of the centuries has left an indelible mark: an architectural and artistic wealth of enormous value that starts from the Roman remains to reach through various styles the Liberty and the contemporary period. Throughout the region, both in the small cities of art and in the capital Turin, you can admire palaces, villas, castles, fortresses of royal beauty such as the Savoy residences, but you can also take advantage of the incomparable natural beauties that the vast territory of this region can offer.

Piedmontese wines

Nebbiolo, Barbaresco, Barbera, Dolcetto...
We guess you know these wine names. Could you guess they're all coming from the same Italian region?
The name Piedmont comes from latin “ad pedem montium”, meaning at the foot of the mountains, and it’s considered worldwide as one of the most important wine-growing regions in the world. Whilst the region champions a number of varieties, Nebbiolo is the most spectacular, ethereal and capable of producing truly profound wine such as Barolo and Barbaresco, whose names come from small villages of the Langhe region. However, the most cultivated variety is Barbera, from which lighter, fruity wine is produced, typical of the Monferrato area. In the case of white wines, the Gavi is number one. Here, the Cortese di Gavi variety produces delicate, flowery plants, while the Arneis is more likely to have a fruity-spicy, honey-like bouquet. Wine of Piedmont is of its own character, as many of the local grapes are either not grown in other parts of Italy or play a comparable qualitative role there. This applies to the Nebbiolo, the Grignolino, Dolcetto, Cortese and even the Barbera does not quite play the role in the rest of Italy as in Piedmont.

Alba

the truffle paradise
Alba is a lovely, roman and medieval town and it is best known for its white truffles, wines and hazelnuts. Alba truffles, in particular, are the local landmark and the leading quality in the International Truffle Market. The truffle fair which takes place in autumn is an absolute highlight. “Tajarin al Tartuffe” is one of the most renowned dishes from the region involving local delicacy. “Tajarin” is the finer version of tagliatelle from the Piedmont region. A must taste!

Castelmagno Cheese

A cheese from the Middleage
Castelmagno PDO is considered the most famous Piedmontese cheese and has its origins already in the Middleage when it was used as a bargaining chip for the payment of annual fees for the use of pastures. It is named after a Roman soldier whom despite being persecuted, kept on preaching gospels and gave its name to the famous sanctuary town of Castelmagno in Grana Valley. What's really important is that it pairs perfectly with a glass of Barolo wine but it’s also used as a sauce of dishes such as gnocchi or pasta.
