GATTINARA, ITALY — A black-and-white photograph in the Antoniolo winery shows the vineyards of this town in northern Italy 100 years ago, when vines seemed to cover every inch of the Alpine foothills that begin to rise here, along the banks of the Sesia River. The scene is different now. Only a few patches of vineyards are left, tucked away in the forests that climb toward the snowy peaks along the Swiss border.

India Winery Few wine regions have experienced as sharp a decline as northern Piedmont, where the vineyards of Gattinara and neighboring towns like Ghemme and Boca used to cover more than 40,000 hectares, or about 100,000 acres. Like other European vineyards, these were decimated by successive plagues of phylloxera, a pest that feeds on grape vines. But there was less incentive here to replant with phylloxera-resistant vines, because factories and textile mills in nearby cities like Novara and Milan were luring away the agricultural work force with higher-paying jobs.
