It is with great pleasure that we post a pece published by DuJour, a paper and online magazine dedicated to Luxury Lifestyle, which we prefer to define as "Luxe, calme et volupte", quoting Budelaire. The article, which can be downloaded here, is a short elegy that takes into consideration (very few) places of the Franciacorta Region - more and mre oftne recognized as a destination of refined excellence - and among them our CorteBianca, described as such:
"This place is absolutely stunning (and made for Instagram). At its heart it's an organic and sustainably-focused winery owned by Marina Tonsi, an architect and interior designer who brings her passion and eye for design to Franciacorta. The vineyards are nestled in the heart of Franciacorta, between the hlls and the lake, and the winery was renovated from a traditional Lombardy farmhouse with the most advanced green architecture. Try and email to get a visit - they only open vvhen they are there, and it's worth the extra effort, promise."
Very nice words, of course, that above all capture the "precious and simple" spirit that defines everything we do. And aside the praise to our property, the true sense of the piece is not to miss a visit - also longer than e weekend - to our extraordinary territory.
The second edition of the Franciacorta Festival in New York is going to take place this coming Wednesday, June 5th, at the prestigious hotel The Redbury, on 29th East. The event is part of the OCM Project, with the collaboration of Constance Chamberlain, founder of Wine&Co (a Wine & Spirits Marketing and Communication firm specialized in promoting Italian and International Wine consortiums), and May Matta Aliah, Ambassador of the Franciacorta Consortium.
The first part of the Event is dedicated to Trade, with a tasting table and two seminars – the first an overview on the Franciacorta Region (history, wine and territory), whilst the second a focus on the soils (a crucial topic for the American market), which will host a discussion led by some wine experts who have visted Franciacorta.
The second part is dedicated to consumers, journalists and influencers, with a number of tasting positions – curated by sommeliers – for the different types of Franciacorta,
We will welcome you in New York, in an ambiance dominated by the red color, to which we like to respond with the precious nuances of our Rosé.
Unexpected, it covers
the tense wire,
the vineyard, the chilly poles,
it covers the soil and the grass
and walking on it feels like
disturbing the silent beauty that falls
on the world to make it a gentler place

A great news from "Millésime Bio", Montpellier's Organic Wine Fair. Our wines are growing, are getting better and are more and more appreciated by Experts and Guides. In the tasting notes of the 2015 edition of Francois Gilbert and Philippe Gaillard's French guide “The world wine signature” – dedicated to Italy – our 2009 Satèn has been awarded the score of 89/100, which surpasses the 86/100 score of 2014. It is worth noting that only 12 Franciacorta labels have been awarded a higher score. Even more worth noting is the fact that Francois Gilbert himself has popped by our stand to meet and award us in person.
