Truffle hunting in Piedmont.

A continuation of our event list from October. Please note: most of these listed things to do in Piedmont are annual.

November in Piedmont is filled with more wine and food experiences. Of course, don’t miss the Alba White Truffle Fair – as the weather gets colder, the truffles get more intense, so make sure you try them! If you have a sweet tooth, the fabulous Cioccolatò festa in Turin is two weeks long. And, mark November 22 to venture to Acqui Terme for a Scarpa wine tasting at Clos Vineria.

It’s going to be a busy, fun month – we hope you enjoy your time in the area with our list of these November fall events Piedmont!

scarpa wine tastingBagna Cauda Day (Piedmont food festival)

About the event: A tribute to the incredible local specialty of Bagna Cauda. Traditionally the dish was served as a complete meal with everyone gathering round to feast on bits dipped in the warm fondue-like mixture of olive oil, garlic, and anchovies. Today, the dish is more frequently found as an antipasto with a dollop of the sauce on vegetables, like roasted peppers. This event lets it shine as it was once done.
