Franciacorta Festival New York
June 5 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
For the first time in New York City, you can taste Italy’s finest sparkling wines from over 30 of the top Franciacorta producers as they join together for the inaugural Franciacorta Festival on Tuesday, June 5th from 6-9pm at The Redbury New York. These producers will be showcasing their wines to members of the wine trade during the day followed by an evening tasting for consumers.
Since the early 1960, passionate Italian winemakers quietly started crafting this delicious sparkling wine, in the Franciacorta wine region. The vineyards are located just south of Lake Iseo, one of the smaller and lesser known of Italy’s northern lakes. Thanks to the moderating influence of this lake, along with the protection offered by the surrounding hills, the grapes grown here, with their crisp and lively acidity are ideally suited to the production of premium sparkling wine. The focus on quality means that the wines all undergo an extended resting period to allow the finest of bubbles to form. These are elegant and beautiful wines that every wine lover should know about.
Tickets to the evening tasting event from 6pm to 9pm, are $35. While you are there, be sure to attend one of the 3 pop-up seminars explaining what makes Franciacorta so special.
