Piedmont

piedmont.jpgImage by MLCG from Pixabay

Piedmont is the home of great Nebbiolo from Barolo and Barbaresco, but don't overlook the Barbera and Dolcetto, not to mention the Moscato, Arneis and Cortese! Which is to say that these beautiful rolling hills produce a great variety of delicious wines, many of which wine drinkers in Canada might not be familiar with. Marquis is here to help, with a wide selection of wines from Italy's northwest.
