“Passion for the land, respect for the environment and the desire to innovate are the values that distinguish us”
Located in Corte Franca, a few kilometers from Lake Iseo, the company covers a total area of thirty hectares, entirely included in the important wine-growing area “Franciacorta D.O.C.G.”. In the 90s the Bosio family, of ancient Franciacorta origins, decided to embark on an exciting adventure in the wine world, combining the passion for the land with the desire to innovate. The Bosio Farm has as its primary objective the production of quality wines with maximum respect for the environment.
The vineyards currently in production occupy an area of twenty hectares and have hilly position and variable exposure. The interpretation of these factors (soil, exposure, climate) in the choice of different varieties allows to obtain a diversified and quality production. The company cultivates important vines such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, for the production of Franciacorta D.O.C.G. White wines; Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Barbera for the production of red wines. In order to obtain a high-quality product, the Bosio Company has paid attention to the use of particular agronomic techniques. Espalier system with high thicknesses, equal to 6,300 plants/hectare and with low production per vine, an essential compromise to produce a quality grape and therefore an excellent wine.
The term “Franciacorta” identifies a hilly area, extended over 19 municipalities in the province of Brescia. A total area of 230 square kilometers, between the river Oglio to the west, the hills of the river Mella to the east, Lake Iseo and the last offshoots of the Rhaetian Alps to the north and the sub-hilly plain to the south.
The characteristics of the soils of morainic origin and the particularly favorable climate, where the cold winds of Vallecamonica are mitigated by the influence of Lake Iseo, make the territory of Franciacorta particularly suitable for the cultivation of vine and allow to obtain wines that are positioned at the top of Italian enology.
