Welcome to our latest installment of #WinephabetStreet brought to you by Dracaena Wines and Trio North Wildwood. In this series, Debbie Gioquindo and I work our way through the wine world one letter each month. We discuss the characteristics and history of the grape, as well as suggested wine pairings. So uncork, unscrew or saber that bottle and connect with us as we chat, laugh and drink wine all in a laid back atmosphere.
N is for Nebbiolo
When you think or hear Nebbiolo, you must travel to Italy. Nebbiolo’s history began, and some will say, still remains in Piedmonte. The first mention of Nebbiolo is way back in the 1200s. The first quote seems to be that of “Documents on the History of Piedmont,” where it appears that in 1268 this grape varietal was cultivated in Rivoli, in the hills of Turin.
