Bookings are now open for the latest Decanter Wine Experience; an exclusive seven-day wine tour of Piedmont with Decanter’s Michaela Morris.
Situated in the north west of Italy, Piedmont is home to some of Italy’s most revered wines. It goes without saying that great wine and food go hand-in-hand in this country and even more so in Piedmont, home to iconic old world wines and famous delicacies including white truffles, risotto, cheese, hazelnuts and Piedmontese Beef.
The region benefits from many sun-drenched slopes with favourable aspects, with the protection of the Alps and Apennines, creating perfect conditions for the region’s famed Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto grape varieties.
Morris, who travels regularly to the region to taste and judge its noble wines, will host an intimate group of wine enthusiasts over the course of seven days, providing a comprehensive and enjoyable introduction to the iconic appellation. Private wine tastings will feature special vintages at Michaela’s request in beautiful establishments including the three-Michelin-starred Piazza Duomo in Alba.
This exclusive tour has been carefully curated by Morris to include excursions guests wouldn’t be privy to otherwise. Guests will hear from expert wine makers behind some of the region’s most iconic estates, enjoy a private tour with the former mayor of Barbaresco and even indulge in truffle hunting in the forests of Barolo.
