The vineyard region of Piemonte joins the World Heritage List
The World Heritage Committee of UNESCO, which has been meeting in Doha (Qatar), gave its approval on Sunday for the vineyard landscape of the Piedmont (Piemonte) in northwest Italy to be added to the prestigious World Heritage List.
Becoming Italy’s 50th World Heritage Site it has an official geographic designation of “Langhe-Roero and Monferrato” but its boundaries include the well-known wine areas of Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera d’Asti and Asti Spumante, among the most famous wine appellations in Italy.
