A Unesco World Heritage Site, the Piedmont region is home to the famous and respected Barolo and Barbaresco vineyards. Until the 1970’s, Barolo and its Nebbiolo grapes, were almost unknown. Now it is considered one of the best and renowned red wines in the world, partly due to the revolution of the Barolo Boys. A group of young Modernist winemakers, who in the 1980’s and ‘90s dramatically changed the style of Barolo wine by introducing a series of technical innovations. They were both “revolutionaries” and “scrappers”. Six of nine Modernist winemakers are part of our outstanding piemontese portfolio, Elio Altare, Giorgio Rivetti (La Spinetta), Roberto Voerzio, Chiara Boschis (E. Pira e Figli), Luciano Sandrone and Enrico Scavino.
Another great terroir vineyard, Etna and its complex volcanic soils, will be highlighted by Tenuta Delle Terre Nere.
The Ardoisières and La Combe des Grandes Vignes estates will also be on hand, perfectly expressing the diversity of Savoie’s terroirs.
