Today on Exploring the Wine Glass we are talking Franciacorta! Before we begin, we have one thing that we have to get out of the way…. It’s not Champagne! In order to be legally called Champagne, the sparkling wine must come from the Champagne region of France. Now that we have that over with, let’s talk Franciacorta!
Everyone has heard the statement, Location, Location, Location. Well, Franciacorta has it all! Located in the Lombardy region of northern Italy within the Brescia(BRESCHA) province, the region is nestled at the foothills of the Alps. You can find Lake Iseo (E SAY O) to the south and the region then stretches in a near perfect square for about 15 miles through the Oglio(O LE O) River. In these flatlands, you can find both magnificent vineyards and olive groves.
I was invited to NYC to taste through some delicious Franciacorta wines. These wines are well worth your effort to seek them out. Trust me! I hope you enjoy the conversation. If you would like to read more about Franciacorta, please read my blog. You can find the post at bit.ly/FranciacortaNYC
