The visit includes an introduction to the Franciacorta wine region, its history and some facts about its development. The hospitality staff will explain to you the method of production (the same of the Champagne!), showing you the journey of the grapes through the cellar. The guided visit is followed by the tasting of two Franciacorta DOCG wines. After this lovely tasting, we will reach a charming little trattoria, where you will enjoy a three courses lunch.
