Economic Observatory

Franciacorta has undertaken a specific studies and research to be able to develop strategies in keeping with the demands of its consumers, with product quality as its main objective. The Franciacorta Economic Observatory, the first and only tool for collecting and analysing reliable data in the Italian wine industry, is the most obvious example of this. The Consortium also promotes many projects with universities, such as Cermes - Bocconi, and local authorities and associations for the protection of the environment.

Over the past 50 years Franciacorta has reached an excellent level of recognition and exceptional growth in Italian and international markets.
