“Franciacorta 2011: the vintage”
Franciacorta, a territory which increasingly intrigues tourists and wine lovers from all over the world.
A small village to discover, a reality that even the actors themselves are learning to understand and appreciate.
A good fortunate to be close to Lake Iseo, to have a climate and a land suitable for wine production.
A choice to offer quality: in wine, in food, in manufacturing, in the tourist offer and in hospitality.
A destination for holidays and trips out of town, Franciacorta constantly proposes events, activating the entire area. To offer guests totalizing experiences, to immerse in a reality that has made the excellence a philosophy of life.
The next event that will involve all Franciacorta will be during the weekend of 14 and 15 September, with the tenth appointment of the Franciacorta Festival in the cellar.
You will be able to discover the territory through the various proposals of the “Strada del Franciacorta“: from trekking or cycling routes, through the visits of abbeys, villages, palaces, villas, gardens and nature reserves.

A THEME TASTING, DEDICATED TO A HARVEST:
“FRANCIACORTA 2011: the vintage”
Participants will initially be guided by the cellar master in an engaging tour, aimed at getting to know the Franciacorta method and the history of the company.
Then we will continue with the tasting of Franciacorta wine, to find what has just been told in the glass; surrounded by the evocative context of the contemporary art gallery of the winery.
Two glasses, two wines, the same harvest: 2011
The historical archive of the grape harvests of the Franciacorta Consortium evaluates that of 2011 with the highest marks: 5. “A slow maturation, accompanied by mild temperatures and good daily temperature, favourable to the synthesis and accumulation of precursors to aromatic compounds, proved an excellent support for obtaining sparkling bases of excellent quality“.
We will try them, we will see the implications of this excellent vintage proposed by La Montina in two versions.
Toghether with the wines there will be tasting of local products.
Visiting tours for the entire weekend will be available at two times: departure at 9.45am and 10.15am
