Philosophy

Cellar Franca Contea is situated in Adro, in the heart of Franciacorta. Its vineyards, mainly Chardonnay grapes in different clonal selections and Pinot noir, extend over an area of 15 hectares. The Cavalleri Family boasts an old generation of farmers that took a growing path in the years, with professionalism and commitment, only setting their sight at high levels, aiming at the excellence of the product through the application of the most natural methods, starting from the soil and gathering, with hard work, the fruits that it can give. The winemaking art of Franca Contea starts from the vineyard and proceeds in the cellar; here is where the grapes are pressed as soon as they arrive, through an innovative vacuum press; Franca Contea was one of the first and still one of the few to utilize it. Operating in an inert environment and in a -0.7 bar depression, the press squeezes gently the grapes, preserving all its natural scents. Franca Contea works with courage and passion, following its grapes with great care, following them through all their path up to the “magic” moment when the bottle will be uncorked! From here the choice of different colours - one for each wine - to transmit all the emotions strongly felt during the process to produce them.

Label

The broken label, characteristic of Franca Contea’s wines, symbolizes the past and the present, the tradition with technologies or better, the technology as an implement to bring back tradition. Franciacorta is a land which invites to live again the history of its sons, the culture which links the man to the land he was born and grown up in, marking out the path of the one who, rich in sensibility, wants to commit the uses and costumes of his ancestors leaving them, at the same time, sons of their era... This is the choice of Franca Contea, its labels and its logo, a prehistoric rock engraving in Valcamonica which symbolizes the earth, the plough and the sun. This is because wine, for Franca Contea, is born from the sun and the earth and last but not least from man’s work. Adopting these symbols in a logo only means a way to give continuity to the gifted people from Lombardia. Symbols linked to the tradition to start a tradition.
