Vineyards undoubtedly characterise the local Acquese territory, and according to the “De naturali vinorum historia“ by Bacci, it seems that vines have always been found on the hills of this region.
Popes and politicians drunk wine in Piedmont, starting from Elvio Pertinace in 193AD, the only Roman Emperor of Piedmontese origins.
Its existence represents the landscape, the history, the costumes and lifestyle, and it is a fundamental factor for the people and the areas’ economy.
The vineyards reward us with prestigious grapes that create excellent wines among which the grand reds emerge: Barbera del Monferrato and Barbera d’Asti, Dolcetto d’Acqui, Freisa and Piemonte Albarossa, that are a perfect combination throughout the entire meal that enhance the flavours and tastes of the local, traditional cuisine.
From white grapes, Cortese and Chardonnay wines are produced, that are cultivated in a spacious area of the region. Esteemed dessert wines are Brachetto d’Acqui and Moscato d’Asti both DOCG (denomination of origin protected and guaranteed) of a remarkable, refined pleasantness. Brachetto d’Acqui was born in the Acquese territory and is solely and exclusively produced here; it is a sweet, delicate, soft wine with a fine and persistent froth.
