Our story begins in 1910, when my great-grandfather, Fedele Franzoni, opened a small warehouse in the center of Botticino, a hamlet at the foot of the Lombardy Prealps, where he began selling wine retail and wholesale. Since then his son Emilio and nephew Sergio have joined and succeeded him. Today I lead the company, with the essential help of my wife Stefania.
If the Botticino area is famous above all for marble, our family loves it and values it for another excellence. Botticino Doc is an important and decisive red wine, which comes from a special combination of the exposure of the vineyards, the calcareous soil and the microclimate that distinguish this hilly area, which is a few kilometers from Brescia and Lake Garda.
Today we cultivate around 12 hectares, jealously guarding the recipe of our wines, which arise from profound and continuous research, so they improve year after year. Making wine is truly a lifestyle, and you never stop learning.
More than a hundred years of winemaking tradition and work spur us every day to do our best to amaze and amaze you with the precious products that our territory offers, and if you have not yet had the opportunity to visit it... we will take you there through our wines !
