About the winery and its history
The "Ca del Bosco" winery in Lombardy has a very high reputation that can be compared with that of the best champagne houses. You work here with great care, but do not block yourself to modern techniques. It was founded in 1968 by Maurizio Zanella on his mother's country estate, who bought it in 1964. At the age of 17, ZanellaPinot was already growing Nero and Chardonnay and produced his first sparkling wine before his 18th birthday. He built the "Ca del Bosco" winery bit by bit with his own efforts to a site of 22,000 square meters. For support, Zanella even got the cellar master from Dom Pérignon and the oenologist Emile Peynaud from Bordeaux at his side as advisors.
The winemaker Maurizio Zanella
Maurizio Zanella not only brings his passion for wine to the winery, but also his fascination for art and culture. Zanella is the heir to one of the largest Italian transport companies. But instead of continuing his father's company in the next generation, he took the risk of setting up his own winery in Lombardy. Today he produces both excellent sparkling wines and still wines in his highly regarded winery.
The Prestige Cuvées are the business card of the winery
The slopes of the vineyards lie on the foothills of the Alps south of Lake Iseo. The mineral-rich soils, many hours of sunshine and mild temperatures create optimal conditions for the production of Chardonnay, Pinot Nero and Pinot Bianco. A long minimum storage time on the yeast gives the wines a very balanced aroma profile. The raw materials are used here with great respect for nature. The high quality of the wines comes from special cooling times that are set for the grapes and air tanks that make use of gravity. "Cadel Bosco" has developed bottling systems especially for wine production.
The well-known Spumante Franciacorta from the "Ca del Bosco" winery
The Cuvee Prestige Franciacorta Brut is one of the most famous sparkling wines from the “Ca del Bosco” winery. The name Spumante does not really do justice to the product from the "Ca del Bosco" winery, because over 50 years of experience in bottle fermentation flow into it and the process is constantly being readjusted. Extensive catacombs are located beneath the ground of the "Ca del Bosco" winery, in which thousands of bottles are stored for several years of bottle fermentation. There is also a vault in which wines are stored cool and aged in large barrels and small barriques.
A visit to the "Ca del Bosco" winery
If you want to pay a visit to the "Ca del Bosco" winery, you will be welcomed by an impressive gate. It is a masterpiece by the sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro, who called it the “hymn to the sun” and honors the sun as the life-giver of the vine. From here a small avenue leads to the winery, which is overgrown with acacias. Visitors get a fascinating view of all the vines that are grown on "Ca del Bosco".
