Piedmont

Piedmont

Piedmont is located in the north-eastern part of Italy and is one of Italy 's most prestigious wine regions. Man has cultivated wine here since 500 BCE. The ligurians , who gave its name to the Liguria region that runs along the Mediterranean coast , south of Piedmont, traded wine already with the Greeks. They decided to strengthen the trade through local production in Piedmont.
 The arrival of the Romans was a turning point in both production efficiency and an almost maniacal organization of the vineyards. The Middle Age period on the other hand, meant like for many other wine regions an erosion of the cultivation techniques and winemaking developed.
