In our farm in Alba we grow from many years the William Pears. The pears are picked at the right point of maturity in late summer and their subsequent transformation occurs only with the addition of a typical sweet wine of the Langhe: Brachetto.
This is a different way to enjoy this very special summer fruit.
The pears are picked when ripe and are processed within few hours, adding the syrup with Brachetto wine and sugar cane.
The result is a product preserved with the same characteristics of a fresh product with unique organoleptic properties and enhances the distinctive flavor of this particular variety of pear.
They are great to taste the natural, or simply opening the jar to make delicious desserts, and ice cream.
The syrup is exceptionnal to drink!
