Franciacorta: Pursuit of Excellence

United in a Pursuit of Excellence
With May Matta-Aliah
Mar 16 2021

Summary: 

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
 
Although it was Walt Disney that originally said it, this quote defines the leading strategy of this wine region. 
Franciacorta has risen from a nascent producer of sparkling Italian wines in the 60’s to a recognized leader in the field today.
 
Join us for a follow up webinar about Franciacorta by May Matta-Aliah, Regional Education Ambassador and learn about the initiatives that the region has been embracing; from a focus on biodiversity to the introduction of new varieties. This forward thinking wine region continues to show what can happen when the majority of its producers join together in a common goal to continue in their relentless pursuit of improving wine quality while honoring and defending the unique region for future generations.

    Excellent presentation but need to also quote measures in metres, litres, and hectares. The rest of us outside US and UK are metric.
    And I'm going to visit Lake Iseo!

    May's presentation was so informative and enjoyable; she does a nice job of explaining Franciacorta and giving a sense of the region and what it's like to visit. I can't wait to get there! Looking forward to more webinars from May!
