Villa Franciacorta

Azienda Vinicola


V illa Franciacorta, a small medieval hamlet dating back to the fifteenth century, is located in Monticelli Brusati just short distance from Lake Iseo. Around every corner of this precious area of Franciacorta you may catch glimpses of the past re-emerging in the medieval hamlet of Villa: from the Roman road that skirts the river and runs through the property, to the ancient well set beside the drive way and the perfectly preserved underground cellars dating back to centuries past.

The Bianchi family’s awareness of its role as guardian of a unique terroir ensures that all the wines are produced exclusively from grapes grown on its own 37 hectares of vineyards. The underground cellars are perfectly located to exploit the natural thermal conditioning that provides the ideal resting place for the Franciacorta as it awaits the time for its disgorging.
