Global Nebbiolo Day

February 28 - March 6

Global Nebbiolo Day

March the 5th

  1. Nebbiolo is an old, old grape, first being referenced as far back as the 13th Century
  2. Even its name evokes the region’s foothills on cool autumn mornings, when the valleys and vineyards lie hidden under a ghostly blanket of nebbia (fog). Or, from the fact that .
  3. Even though Nebbiolo only makes up ~8% of all the grapes grown in Piedmont, more of this grape is grown here than anywhere else in the world.
  4. Despite being an essential part of two of the country’s premier wines, Nebbiolo is rarely grown anywhere else in Italy.
  5. Much like Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo is an incredibly fussy variety to grow. It flowers early, ripens late, and can struggle to ripen fully. It also seems to prefer specific hillside locations and clay- and silt-based soils.
  6. Also like Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo is considered to be a “terroir-expressive” variety, in that it picks up more of the earth, soil, and climate characteristics versus other grapes, which means it can taste wildly different depending on where it’s grown.
