Erbaluce is one of the native grape varieties of Piedmont, an Italian region that is particularly renowned for its high-quality wines. If you’re planning a trip to Piemonte any time soon, make sure to organize an Erbaluce wine tasting and discover this interesting variety with legendary origins.

During your visits to the wineries producing Erbaluce, you will learn that the first evidence of this variety date back to the 1600s. Its name is probably linked to the golden color of its grapes, almost shining when the sun enlightens them, even though some say the name comes from the romantic fairytale of Albaluce. Thanks to its versatility, Erbaluce can be used to produce different types of wine, from dry to sparkling, to passito wines, all included in its DOCG appellation Erbaluce di Caluso.
