GAVISHIRE, THE COUNTY OF THE GREAT WHITE WINE FROM PIEDMONT
In Piedmont, there is a land comprised of 11 municipalities between Liguria and Lombardy that is home to Gavi, the most important white wine from Piedmont. The meeting of the salty wind that blows in from the Ligurian Sea and the snow from the Apennine Mountains makes this a unique corner of Piedmont in the province of Alessandria. One glass of Gavi DOCG, a white wine to be enjoyed both young and aged, expresses the delicate yet elegant smells of the acacia flowers blooming in the spring, almonds and honey, as well as the fresh, savory taste of this rich land, antique like its winemaking tradition that dates back to 972.
It is precisely in this period that the surprising liveliness of the Oltregiogo, the inland area of Genova, began to develop. This is a rich and fertile land, crossed by the Via del Sale and the Via Postumia, the main business streets that were established after the feud between the men of Zena, who already controlled the sea traffic of the area. Today, this area still mirrors the ancient ways of Genova in its architecture, territorial identity, language and especially its cuisine heavy in vegetables and fish. And there you have it - this unique land called Piedmont is home to one of the most important white wines, the Gavi DOCG.
A still yet to be explored corner where you can find slow tourism and travel paths linked closely to nature and the beauty of the uncontaminated landscapes including the Nature Reserve of the Piedmont Apennines and many picturesque places glorified by antique villas and country homes. History and culture mix in the discrete luxury of the country resorts, golf clubs and worthy local sights such as the Museo dei Cappuccini di Voltaggio, the archaeological area of Libarna in Serravalle Scrivia and the Musei dei Campionissimi (dedicated to cycling) in Novi Ligure (in partnership with the Piemonte Region - PSR 2014-2020 - European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development).
