Hillside Overlook, Acqui Terme

In Piedmont, the picturesque northwest region at the foot of the Alps, harvest draws international visitors to the tiniest villages and most out-of-the way hillside regions. More and more people are rediscovering the "slow food" philosophies the Piemontese never forgot: being in touch with the land, in harmony with the seasons, and cultivating/harvesting food by hand.

"Piedmont is one of my favorite wine regions in Italy. From crisp Gavi to the delicious, slightly effervescent Brachetto d’Acqui to big Nebbiolos of Barolo and Barbaresco, there is a wine for every dish," says Certified Italian Wine Specialist Allison Levine, founder of Please the Palate.
