With the harvest over, the month of festivals has arrived: September.
First in our winery the Festival Franciacorta opened the dances, then the Festival became itinerant: from the Franciacorta London Festival to the Franciacorta Festival in Como. Appointments different from each other, but all dedicated to making Franciacorta, its wine and its method known in Italy and abroad, accumulated by the same goal: that of consolidating the presence of our wine even outside our territory.

The Franciacorta London Festival saw the participation of about 30 wineries, including ours, in a country that still knows little about Franciacorta: a country that is a great consumer of Prosecco and Champagne, where the challenge is to tell the story of a different product, but one that remains a great symbol of the Italian lifestyle.

We participated in this Festival with our Franciacorta Brut and Franciacorta Rosè , both expressions of our idea of making organic Franciacorta, strongly characterized by Pinot Noir grapes. Both wines are currently distributed in the British market.

The large presence of Italian restaurants in London represents a great opportunity to propose and introduce our wine in a territory yet to be explored. In the heart of London there are already those who appreciate our Franciacorta wines, such as in the Chelsea neighborhood, where Alex of the restaurant Stecca proposes our organic Franciacorta wines with our traditional dishes. An example is our Franciacorta Rosè with salumi and gnocco fritto or beef carpaccio with parmesan and arugula. Alex’s favorite, however, remains our Millesimato Blanc de Noir, which is an organic Franciacorta made from pure pinot noir grapes.

From the Thames we moved to the banks of the Lario, an area that knows Franciacorta and its nuances well. In the setting of Villa Erba in Cernobbio (CO) was held the Franciacorta Festival in Como, where we participated with 30 other Franciacorta wineries.

During this event our Franciacorta Rosè was again the protagonist, as in London, but flanked this time by Satén in which the fruity and floral scents of Chardonnay excel.

An event under the banner of beauty, that of a territory and its tradition, which was enhanced by the very beauty of the place that hosted it, Villa Erba, also home these days to another very important event: Orticolario, dedicated to the Water Landscape, a journey to recover an authentic and profound awareness.

If there is any magic on this planet, it is contained in water, and we winemakers know it very well: nature becomes the inspiration of one’s lifestyle. An experience among design, art, theme gardens, rare, unusual and collectible plants, and arts and crafts, with more than 270 exhibitors in the park and exhibition center overlooking Lake Como.
Definitely, another event not to be missed!
