Piemonte is one of my favorite wine regions in the world. The hills, the morning fog, the smell of autumn forest, truffles, old wine cellars and wine shops with treasures we only can imagine.
Over the last years I've followed the development of sparkling wines from Piemonte closely, and the quality has become very impressive. There are now several producers making very nice bubbles, and one of them is Fontanafredda. Established in 1858 on old hunting grounds, this large producer is one of the most well known in Piemonte. Great value for money is one of the key words that strike me when talking about the producer, and our wine of the week is no exception.
