New UNESCO world heritage: The Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont

Tasting OnMyWay is happy to forward this information to our tasting community.

The following text is from the whc.unesco.org website:

Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato covers five distinct wine-growing areas with outstanding landscapes and the Castle of Cavour, an emblematic name both in the development of vineyards and in Italian history. It is located in the southern part of Piedmont, between the Po River and the Ligurian Appenines, and encompasses the whole range of technical and economic processes relating to the winegrowing and wine making that has characterized the region for centuries. Vine pollen has been found in the area dating from the 5th century BC, when Piedmont was a place of contact and trade between the Etruscans and the Celts; Etruscan and Celtic words , particularly wine-related ones, are still found in the local dialect. During the Roman Empire, Pliny the Elder mentions the Piedmont region as being one of the most favourable for growing vines in ancient Italy; Strabo mentions its barrels.

The vineyards of Piedmont/Italy are birthplace to some of the most amazing wines in Italy. We have a collection of those in our database and invite you to browse this region to plan your next trip or simply for the fun of it. We have chosen one producer for you.
