It’s literally a stone’s throw from the Alamo: Paesanos, a Texas culinary institution for 50 years and counting.

When people think of Italian-American communities in the U.S., the first thing that comes to mind is the wave of immigration from Italy that came through Ellis Island in New York in the late 19th century and early 20th century.

But what a lot of people don’t know is that Galveston, located on the Gulf Coast in southeast Texas, was another major port where many Italians landed around the same time.

Most of them headed for Houston nearby and central Texas where they established some of the largest Italian-American communities outside of the Tri-State area and New England.

One of those communities still thrives in San Antonio, in the “heart” of Texas, where Italian cuisine and its gastronomic traditions are still cherished and beloved just as they are in among their east coast counterparts.

Since 1969, Paesanos has been serving some of the best Italian food in Texas, including classics like the mussels and pasta in the photo above, a perfect pairing for Prosecco DOCG.

We’ve written a lot here on the blog about why Prosecco makes for such a great pairing with seafood.

And at Paesanos the other night, we were reminded how the salty flavors of the sea are complemented by Prosecco DOCG’s natural minerality and ripe fruit flavors.

We couldn’t be more thrilled that Paesanos serves Villa Sandi Prosecco DOCG by the glass and by the bottle. It’s an honor to be part of this Texas gastronomic legacy.
