About Franciacorta

Franciacorta produces some of the highest quality sparkling wines in the entire industry, having received the ultimate DOCG status in 1995 as first Italian wine in this category. Focusing on stringent, hand–picked selections of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc and Erbamat grapes, it is crafted using the traditional method with secondary fermentation occurring in bottle.

The production of sparkling wine in Franciacorta traces back to the 16th century, with studies of the Napoleonic Cadastral records certifying the existence of almost 1,000 vineyards back 1809. Franciacorta’s modern history then began years later in 1960s, with just 11 producers collectively cultivating 29 hectares of vineyards to start the production of 270,000 bottles of sparkling. The Consorzio now stands at 116 current members who make the 17.5m bottles that are produced today. www.franciacorta.net/en/
