Discovering the wine region of Erbaluce di Caluso

Piedmont (Piemonte) holds an unrivalled place among the world's finest wine regions. Located in northwestern Italy, it is home to more DOCG wines than any other Italian region, including such well-known and respected names as Barolo, Barbaresco and Barbera d'Asti. Though famous for its austere, tannic, floral reds made from Nebbiolo, Piedmont's biggest success story in the past decade has been Moscato d'Asti, a sweet, sparkling white wine. Piedmont lies, as its name suggests, at the foot of the Western Alps, which encircle its northern and western sides and form its naturally formidable border with Provence, France.

To the southeast are the Apennines, the most northerly. These low coastal hills separate Piedmont from its long, thin neighbour, Liguria, and from the Mediterranean beyond. The Alps and the Apennines are important here in many ways. They are largely responsible for the region's favourable climate and for many centuries they provided a degree of protection against invasion.

Discover the grape variety: Verjus

A very old grape variety, probably of southern origin, which was once found in many French regions including Picardy, it once abounded in the Seine basin and Burgundy, generally grown on trellises, arbors, against walls, etc. A very beautiful stump is now found climbing along the walls of the Reims Sciences Po Campus (Marne), given as being over 300 years old. It was also known in Italy, Germany, ... and well before the phylloxera crisis and because of its great vigour, it was customary to graft on "Verjus" varieties that lacked it. Today, it is on the verge of extinction, but it can be found among a few amateur gardeners who sometimes use it as an ornamental vine. Note that it has never been used as a wine grape because its wine is frankly bad.
