2nd Italian food, wine and travel bloggers event on Piedmont

Welcome back to our now 2nd Italian Food, Wine & Travel bloggers group! This month we feature one of my favorite regions in Italy, Piedmont or Piemonte! Last month we featured the Veneto region and had lots of amazing blogs to share. 
 
This group consists of bloggers that have a deep appreciation and passion for Italy whether it comes from their travels to Italy or their appreciation of the fine wines and amazing cuisine. Piedmont, translating to “foot of the mountain” is indeed at the foot of some of the tallest mountains in all of Europe. It's a hop skip and a jump from the French and Italian Riviera as well the Valle d'Aosta with it's stunning Alpine landscapes. This region is also highly regarded for it's rich cuisine that pair perfectly with some of the best known wines in all of Italy.
