Where The Wines Come From

Piemonte

Natural wine production in Piemonte, Italy, is deeply intertwined with the region's rich winemaking heritage and diverse terroir. Nestled in the northwest of Italy, Piemonte is renowned for its picturesque landscapes, rolling hills, and majestic Alps. Indigenous grape varieties such as Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto thrive in this environment, producing wines that are elegant, complex, and full of character. Natural winemakers in Piemonte embrace organic and biodynamic farming practices, nurturing their vineyards with care and respect for the land. In the cellar, they employ minimalist techniques, allowing the grapes to ferment spontaneously with native yeasts and minimal sulfur usage, resulting in wines that authentically express the terroir of Piemonte. The resulting wines are vibrant, aromatic, and reflective of the region's unique landscapes and winemaking traditions. Whether enjoyed with traditional Piemontese cuisine or savored on their own, natural wines from Piemonte offer a taste of Italy's winemaking heritage and a glimpse into the future of sustainable viticulture.
