History & Geography
The territory of Franciacorta includes the Morenic Fiel, an area of extraordinary beauty which stretches from the banks of Lake Iseo across gentle hills and evocative valleys embellished by ancient villages, medieval castles, patrician villas, churches and remote abbeys. The culture of vines and wine production in the land of Franciacorta are much more ancient than the name of the region itself. The first traces of this longstanding activity date back as far as pre-historic times and continued up to today, withstanding the different invasions and occupations witnessed by this area in centuries of history. A tradition of vine culture which spanned across several millennia and that has succeeded in recognizing the production of the sparkling wines of Franciacorta as the true vocation of this land.
