Franciacorta is an area of gentle hills covered with vineyards, medieval towers and patrician villas. It lies in a sunny hollow to the south of Lake Iseo and has been dedicated to wine-making since the Romans started to cultivate the vine.
Heirs of the tradition, today’s wine makers produce high-quality wines, the most famous being “Franciacorta”, the king of Italian sparkling wines.
