The Wine Grapes of Piedmont

Piedmont is mainly known for Nebbiolo, the key grape variety in the famous wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. Historically both the red skinned Barbera and Dolcetto were important, and for many wineries in the region these are still the key varieties. Recent years have brought a growing interest in some of Piedmont’s lesser known grapes though. The white Timorasso is enjoying a resurgence in popularity, but others such as Arneis, Albarossa and Freisa, to name just three, are also intriguing wine lovers with their local charm. Here is the full list of which grapes are used in Piedmont.
