Your friends and family might know you as that one, the foodie or wine lover who always whips out your cellphone right when everyone else's forks are hovered above their plates.

From Grapevines to Forest: 5 Hikes to Enjoy Autumn Colors in Piemonte

Piemonte has one of Italy’s most varied landscapes: from Alpine foothills to acres of vineyards, from thick forests to fields of rice paddies, they are all a showcase of bright colors in the autumn. Walks and hikes are the best way to enjoy the reds and golden yellows of the season, so we’ve prepared five hikes that explore five different wine zones.

This dilemma resolved, the market and wine’s widespread diffusion have demanded that new questions be answered, that of product communication. The end goal has always been the same: to win the trust and loyalty of the consumer.
