With their dedication and devotion, they have taken the company to its 60th anniversary and beyond, with a constant focus on quality at all times. Over the years, the brand has become synonymous with style in Italy and across the globe. It epitomizes the values of unparalleled craftsmanship. The Franciacorta Association monitors and ensures compliance with the production regulations for Franciacorta, which became the first Italian wine made exclusively with secondary fermentation in the bottle to be awarded DOCG (Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin) labelling in 1995. The association is involved in a number of activities, including protection of the brand and the territory, enhancing the value of the products through ongoing work on the production rules and regulations, providing information for consumers, and promoting Franciacorta as the embodiment of a territory, a wine and a production method.
