If you weren’t already planning a trip to Italy’s Piedmont region, it might be time to start. Hosted by Slow Food, this festival happens every two years and includes visits with iconic cheesemakers, wineries and vineyards, cheese caves, farms, and Michelin-starred restaurants. Through September 23.
