    Italy's Great Sparklers: Wine Roads of Franciacorta from Milan

Italy's Great Sparklers: Wine Roads of Franciacorta from Milan

  • City: Milan
  • Duration: 7 hours

Overview

Just a short hour's drive from Milan lies the bountiful zone of Franciacorta, a wine region that is becoming increasingly renowned as a gem of Italian Champagne Method wines. Located at the foothills of the Alps, the terroir is perfect for the growth of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This full-day private wine experience allows you to fully discover the beauty of the region, its people, cuisine, and story by visiting two of the most prestigious wineries of the area.

Departing from your hotel in Milan, you will first visit the Azienda Agricola Ricci Curbastro, an estate headed by the Ricci Curbastro family, whose agricultural roots trace back to the thirteenth century. Your visit will begin with a tour of the welcoming grounds at the Museum of Agriculture and Wine, which displays objects and tools traditionally used in the production of wine and agricultural goods, before heading to the cellar to explore the magic that is Franciacorta wines. Your visit to the Ricci Curbastro farm will culminate with a lunch of various traditional antipasti, or appetizers followed by a seasonal risotto and a homemade dessert. This lunch will be paired with three of the family's Franciacorta wines.

From this very traditional farm, you will head to Ca' del Bosco, a modern estate whose contemporary style offers a contrast to the agrarian Ricci Curbastro estate. You will tour the cellar, learning the history of the estate and exploring Ca' del Bosco's highly technological advancements in wine production. You will then visit the barrique cellars, the historic repositories of art, and lastly, the dome. Here you will enjoy a tasting of the winery's Franciacorta Cuvwe Prestige, Curtefranca Bianco, and Curtefranca Rosso
