Wine from piedmonte
Wine from piedmont is made in the region of Piedmont, which is a large region in northwestern Italy. The region borders, in the north with Switzerland and in the west with France. Furthermore, the region borders on Liguria, Emilia-Romagna, Lombardy and Valle d'Aosta. The region is geographically divided into three parts, divided by the Alpes region to the north, the Po plain and the hilly landscape in the southeast. To the north lies the Grenzgipfel mountains which is the highest mountain of the region with 4609 meters and the second highest in Italy. This mountain is located on the border with Switzerland.
