I visited Piedmont with Berry Brothers & Rudd and so can you…

It’s not too late to enter Berry Bros. & Rudd’s latest competition to win a trip to Piedmont, Italy with their resident wine buyer, nebbiolo expert, and 8th generation Berry, David Berry Green. Berry Bros. & Rudd is one of the oldest wine merchants in the world and is offering one lucky person and a companion the chance to hang out with their Piedmont winebuyer. Piedmont is well known for it’s Barolo’s but did you know that Barolo is made from nebbiolo? Or that nebbiolo is also made into an early drinking, bright and very food friendly wine? All you have to do is make a short video explaining why you think you’d like to win.

I was invited to visit Serralunga d’Alba, where David is based in Langhe, Piedmont, and met many of the producers as well as eat some very choice food and visit medieval castles. But the real reason we were there was to discover the wines made from the nebbiolo grape. I had a chance to sit down with David and asked him why he thought nebbiolo was worthy of being in the spotlight.

See how easy it is to make a video and what a lovely chap David is? So what are you waiting for, make your own video explaining why you think you should win the trip and get your entry in by 21 April 2011. Good luck!
