Piedmont to Sardinia- The Piedmont region in Italy is located on the northwest corner of the boot, it hugs southern France. Sardinia is an island southwest of Piedmont. Sardinia is said to be one of the most ancient lands of Europe, as well as a stop on the trade route from the south to Great Britain. We hope to bring you a local food journey of these two areas. Piedmont is known for its exquisite beef, white truffles, and rich pasta, while Sardinia boasts rich cheeses and plates of seafood with saffron flavors. This is a five-course meal paired with premium wines from Knapp Winery, Chateau LaFayette Reneau Wine Cellars, Zugibe Vineyards and Glenora Wine Cellars.
