Acqui Terme is a charming historic town in the province of Alessandria in Piedmont, Italy. For wine lovers in particular, it offers more than its famous thermal springs, which provide health and well-being. A wine is grown in the area that promises exceptional - and unusual - enjoyment. Its name: Brachetto (d'Acqui).
The province of Alessandria is very extensive and includes five different wine-growing areas: Acquese, Ovadese, Gaviese, Tortonese and Casalese. The names derive from the respective towns, which are located in the easternmost part of the hills of southern Piedmont, stretching from the Langhe to the Tortona area. Alessandria produces a considerable number of varied and high quality wines, making it an important area for viticultural diversity. We have already reported on the Timorasso from Tortonese. Today we are dealing with the Brachetto from the Acquese.
