Wine for a Texan State of Mind
Time for Brachetto

brachettodacqui_01Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word.” John Steinbeck’s words perfectly capture the spirit of the Lone Star State. Texas is a place of wide open spaces, big cities and large appetites.

As the “lone star” of Italian wines, Brachetto d’Acqui is a red wine perfectly suited to the Texan palate. It is sweet, pleasantly effervescent and serves as the perfect complement to a menu of stuffed turkey with cranberry sauce, cornbread, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.

Enjoyed on the cool side, Brachetto d’Acqui is one of life’s great pleasures. It is 100% Italian, made from grapes grown only in the Piedmont of northwestern Italy on gently rolling hills straddling the 45th parallel.

Brachetto is perfect for any time of the day and suitable for almost any occasion. Serve it with Sunday morning brunch or sip it on a Saturday evening with friends. It’s a welcome addition to any dinner table and will make your Thanksgiving Day unforgettable.
