to be able to enjoy the trip in complete tranquility ...

  • GEOGRAPHY - The current Franciacorta includes a territory that extends on the surface of the following municipalities, all located in the province of Brescia: Adro, Capriolo, Castegnato, Cazzago San Martino, Cellatica, Coccaglio, Cologne, Corte Franca, Erbusco, Gussago, Iseo, Monticelli Brusati, Ome, Ospitaletto, Paderno Franciacorta, Paratico, Passirano, Provaglio d'Iseo, Rodengo-Saiano and Rovato. The territory, mostly hilly and formerly strewn with forests, has recently been transformed with the planting of numerous vineyards that characterize its peculiarity. Local authorities are committed to preserving the landscape and conservation aspects both on the physical side and from the historical-cultural point of view: in fact numerous architectural testimonies of antiquity (monasteries, churches, abbeys, villas and castles of the medieval age). At the southern border of Franciacorta is Mount Orfano, which reaches 451 m of maximum altitude.
  • HISTORY - The name Franciacorta has its roots in the Middle Ages, when these lands were entrusted to small communities of Benedictine monks, exempted (francae) by taxes (curtes), so that they were reclaimed and cultivated. Here the first so-called biting wine was born, as early as the thirteenth century, four hundred years before that in Champagne. Land of abbeys and priories, this moraine area bounded by Monte Orfano, Monte Alto and the hills of Lake Iseo, knows its first major development in wine production in the second half of the 800, when the historian Gabriele Rosa could define it land of "excellent black and white wines". On the slopes of Monte Orfano, a jewel in a marvelous casket, stands the Castello Bonomi, the only Chateau of Franciacorta. (taken from www.castellobonomi.it)

Castello Bonomi

In the terraces of Castello Bonomi, where each stock gives only a few clusters of the highest quality, the Chardonnay is cultivated, which gives pleasant fruity and mineral notes and Pinot Nero, with its complex aromas, which gives the wine structure, character and elegance.
Only the love for the vineyards and the perfect fusion between the different vines that make up the same Franciacorta can make a very special wine.

Montisola

Monte Isola is the largest lake island in Europe. Finding ourselves is equivalent to taking a step back in time, as cars do not circulate, except those of the parish priest, the doctor and the mayor. Transit is allowed only for public services, for motor scooters and for bicycles, which can also be used to ferry or rent on site.
The island is connected to the shores of the lake by an efficient service of scheduled boats: the most convenient and close point to reach it is Sulzano.
