In 1956, Giovanni BONFADINI, always a winemaker in Franciacorta, started the Bonfadini winery. In 1993, Graziano, one of Giovanni’s seven children, took over the winery and continued to cultivate the vineyards and sell the grapes to large wine producers in Franciacorta. However, in the back of his mind, he always wanted to create something special with his own grapes. In 2007, his daughter Francesca, wanting to honor the work that her grandfather and her father had done, decided to start producing and bottling their own wines. In 2010, Nobilium Brut was introduced to the market as the first Franciacorta DOCG Bonfadini. The wine’s immediate success was not enough for Francesca. Her constant attention to the finest details of all aspects of the wine business, from the growing of the grapes, vinification, aging, aesthetic aspects of the packaging and marketing helped bring the 5,000 bottles of Bonfadini’s first year to 50,000 bottles of four very distinct classical wines. In 2013, with the addition of winemaker Gianni Gasperi, Bonfadini succeeded in establishing its own distinctive identity. Since then, their wines have received many awards and positive feedback in Italy and abroad. The future looks exciting: Bonfadini is investing resources to upgrade the winery to produce up to 100,000 bottles a year. New types of Franciacorta wines will be introduced and, as always, Bonfadini will keep its highest standards of excellence.

Mirabella also produced the first Franciacorta without added allergens and sulfites, in total respect for nature and the consumer.

Agricultural tradition since the 13th century, the Ricci Curbastro family runs farm estates in Lugo di Romagna (Ravenna), in Rontana di Brisighella (Ravenna) and the homonymous farm estate of Capriolo in Franciacorta (Brescia). Of the 80 acres of estate area, 68 acres are planted with vineyards according to the strict guidelines of modern viticulture and of the Consorzio Vini Franciacorta (Franciacorta Wine Consortium), of which the estate is member from its inception. In the secular park where the Villa Evelina stands, the underground wine cellar is located. This is where the fermentation processes and the slow aging of Franciacorta DOCG take place. The vinification is controlled by enologists Annalisa Massetti, Andrea Rudelli and Riccardo Ricci Curbastro: a mix of experiences for wines that are meant for the increasingly demanding tastes of consumers worldwide.
