Medieval towers, castles, monasteries mixed with hillside vineyards, small historical villages and renaissance palaces. This is Franciacorta, a region rich in noble history and beautiful nature. 

 

Just one hour east of Milan and situated in between the UNESCO-listed cities of Brescia and Bergamo and Lake Iseo where the famous artist Christo realized his "Floating Piers" is situated the wine growing area Franciacorta.

 

Although it has a relatively young history – the first official Franciacorta sparkling wine was produced here in 1961 – this fertile area has quickly established as one of the country’s premiere wine regions thanks to its high-quality viticulture and meticulous production standards.

 

Franciacorta covers 200 km2 and is home to over 100 wineries that produce sparkling wines in the "metodo classico", making them a more affordable alternative to French Champagne. The luscious Satèn style, produced exclusively in this region, is comparable to the French Crémant and pays a nod to Italian silk (as the heritage of Milanese fashion), but there are also other excellent styles of Franciacorta such as rosé, millesimati and riserva.
