“I came to Piemonte to work one grape harvest.  That was over 20 years ago…”

Welcome to PiemonteMio!

PiemonteMio is a site dedicated to life here in Piemonte.  My Piemonte – Piemonte Mio – is all about the wine – some of the finest in the world.  But as you will see, there is so much more to Piemonte than just that.

I can help you to discover the best of the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato in this jewel of north-western Italy, with architecture, cuisine, sports, scenery, design, history as great as any in the country.

Food and wine tours in Piemonte

I have information on how to get here, and what to see and do when you arrive, so that you can experience the Piemonte that the locals know.

Food and wine are what most visitors to the Langhe, Roero annd Monferrato come for, but Piemonte has much more to offer than just that: from Olympic ski and winter sports resorts, to Italy’s first capital city, Turin, home to some of the best museums in the country, to say nothing of the shopping…

Wine & Food Tours

“We had an incredible day with Evan in Barolo country!…world class at every step and a ton of fun.”

Dan Styf

Nowhere in Italy can offer as much as Piemonte when it comes to what’s on your plate and in your glass.   The wines are the most interesting in the land and the cuisine, courtesy of the Savoyard Empire, is a sublime blend of French and Italian.

The glories of Italian regional larders are overwhelmingly to be found in small, family-owned producers, and Piemonte is no exception.  People making authentic wines or foods deeply rooted in the area, and restaurants making traditional dishes from locally-sourced ingredients.

The wines are easily accessible, the food wonderfully seasonal and crowned with the glorious White Truffle.

To visit the places the locals go, you need someone here; someone who lives and breathes the region: someone who will show you places others don’t know about.  Someone like me…

I didn’t realise how much I loved Gavi!

I knew I liked Gavi but I didn't realise just how much until I visited Tenuta La Giustiniana last weekend with my mate Clemens who has a wine business, (MonVino), exporting principally to Germany. He had received some enquiries from Stuttgart and Berlin for quality...

Welcome to 2012

It's been a week of contrasts as we returned from Delhi after 16 straight days of curry and Kingfisher beer to decent wine and plainer food. The weather is slightly different as we have had our 1st snowfall overnight and it's still snowing! Although the holiday was...

Dinner at Herstmonceux Castle, Friday 16th March

In conjunction with Herstmonceux Castle I have arranged a wine-tasting and typical Piemontese dinner in this historic setting. The wine-tasting will include Barolos and Barbarescos (dubbed the King and Queen of wines), made by several of my passionate and dedicated...

Sottimano awards 2011

Great to see these awards for one of my favourite neighbours! Wine Advocate Antonio Galloni, “This is a stunning set of wines from the Sottimano family. The 2008 Barbareschi are among the wines of the vintage and are not to be missed. The transparency and sheer class...

Feast or Famine

Having had a Summer with little or no rain the weather in the past week made up for it. After the tragedies in Liguria last week we now have our fingers crossed that the rain of the past couple of days is absorbed locally although Her Outdoors had to make several...

Multi award-winning Giovanni Rosso

I must admit that I am only scratching the surface when it comes to the sheer number of Barolo producers and I also find it difficult to get to grips with quality young'uns. I recently visited the cantina of Giovanni Rosso in Serralunga d'Alba now run by son Davide...
