What You Can Expect

Sparkling Franciacorta Private Wine Tour with Lunch and Wineries Visit

Franciacorta wine tasting

Depart from your centrally-located Milan hotel and begin the approximately one-hour drive into the Franciacorta wine region.

Visit the first Franciacorta winery of the day to learn about the entire course of wine production in the region, including how the wines are aged and bottled. Franciacorta wines are made using the champagne method, though the region's own regulations are even more strict than the ones imposed on Champagne itself.

Sample a selection of wines as you hear how Franciacorta was Italy's first sparkling wine to be designated a DOCG wine – the highest level of quality. Go on a tour of the winery, followed by a gourmet lunch in the winery's restaurant. Take a scenic break after lunch for a walk on the shores of Lake Iseo.

Stop at the second winery of the day, a small family-run estate with its roots in the 1800s. Learn about this winery's production process as you tour the cellar and vineyards. Enjoy another wine tasting before the return trip to Milan.
