Wine tasting tour in Piedmont
Discover five places in Monferrato and their most identifying wines
The area of Alessandria province (Piedmont, in North West Italy) goes from Ovada, close to the sea, to the Tortona Apennines, where you can ski in winter. Then from Casale – Monferrato‘s major centre – to Gavi, with its huge fort, and Acqui Terme, with its ancient history. So many landscapes, but also different terroir, the set of microclimatic conditions and soils that determine the identity of a wine.
Syusy Blady and Patrizio Roversi started a new journey, a trip about enotourism: travelling and tasting wines in a reasoned way, discovering the places “through the glass” as a new kind of tourism, not necessarily in the classic holiday destinations – the sea, the lake and the mountain. The Italian province’s economy is often based on wine making, affecting also the landscape and traditions.
Syusy and Patrizio chose five areas in the province of Alessandria and their most identifying wines, following a surprising itinerary. The matches are: Casale Monferrato and the Grignolino, Acqui Terme and the Brachetto di Acqui DOCG, Ovada and the Dolcetto di Ovada DOCG, Gavi and the Gavi Cortese DOCG, Tortona and the Derthona wine.
