Consorzio di Tutela Vini d'Acqui

Nestled in the scenic landscapes of Acqui Terme, in the province of Alessandria, Piedmont, the Consorzio Tutela Vini d'Acqui was established in 1992 as the stalwart guardian of the Vini d'Acqui's prestigious lineage. Representing the north-western Italian viticultural excellence, its core mission is to oversee, regulate, and protect the esteemed denominations of Vini d'Acqui, ensuring that their unique territory of origin, the passionate producers, and discerning consumers are all safeguarded.

Boasting a formidable alliance of 60 diverse entities, the Consortium encompasses farms, cooperative wineries, and notable sparkling wine producers. Their combined strength and commitment have led to tangible milestones. One such pivotal moment was in 1996 when, under the Consortium's diligent advocacy, Brachetto d'Acqui was elevated to the DOCG (Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin) status. This recognition was more than just an emblem of quality; it solidified, from both legal and administrative perspectives, the distinct characteristics of the wine and its sparkling counterpart, thereby amplifying the prestige of both categories.

But the Consortium's aspirations extend beyond mere regulatory roles. They are fervently dedicated to magnifying the grandeur of Acqui wines. Through meticulous production planning, they ensure the wines' intrinsic quality. Furthermore, their strategic promotional initiatives aim to cast the spotlight on these wines, positioning them as emblematic representations of the 'Made in Italy' brand. Complementing this is their educational drive, disseminating the exquisite qualities of the Vini d'Acqui and bolstering its market presence both domestically and internationally. In essence, the Consorzio di Tutela Vini d'Aqui stands as a beacon, illuminating the illustrious legacy of Dolcetto d'Acqui DOC and Brachetto d'Acqui DOCG to the world.
