Piedmont Wine Study Tour Highlights

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to travel through all the key appellations of this authentic wine region of Italy with a notable expert and fabulous instructor!

The stunning wines of Piedmont are among the best in the world. The noble Nebbiolo grape achieves a level of greatness in the hills of Barolo and Barbaresco that cannot be matched in any other wine region. Lesser-known wine treasures such as Barbara, Dolcetto and Arneis are the everyday gems of industry insiders. Traveling to these small yet significant wine districts begets a level of understanding unreachable in books or podcasts. See and taste the difference between villages, appellations and vineyards.

  • Discover the Piedmont wine region with your instructor, Kerin O’Keefe, Italian Wine Editor for Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
  • Explore Piedmont’s iconic wine villages including Alba, Asti, Barolo, Barbaresco and Serralunga
  • See the famous Langhe and Monferrato Hills firsthand and discover why they were made UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
  • Delve in the fascinating terroirs of Barolo and Barbaresco, the king and queen of Italian wine
  • Drink history as you learn about the evolution of the region’s wines and taste winemaking philosophy in the glass
