What others are saying about Piedmont

I would like to know if anyone has been successful in growing lemon trees in Piedmont? We are @ 600 meters elevation, south of Alba. We will use terra cotta pots, and have a micro climate area next to our stables. Full sun all day with 1 meter thick limestone surrounding area. Stephen
