Franciacorta

FRANCIACORTA, OUR LOVE.

06

SINCE THE VERY FIRST TOAST, WE HAVE NEVER BEEN APART.

Like our sparkling wines, the territory of Franciacorta is unique. What makes it so special is a mix of natural gifts combined with a know-how handed down across the centuries.

We are talking about a place where wine-making culture dates back to the Lombard period (8th century AD). And it is no accident that our ancestors chose these hills to produce their wines. The morainic soil, the mild microclimate due to the proximity of Lake Iseo and the fresh breezes of Val Camonica combine to create unique conditions for growing vines.

In medieval times the lands north of Lake Iseo were “francae curtes”, meaning free from duty, thanks to the reclamation of this marshy terrain by the Cluniac monks. Hence the name Franciacorta.
