At the beginning of 1400 there was a big agricultural development and the concentration of viticulture in the hilly suburban area.

In 1852 the Treaty on the wines of Gabriele Rosa reports Franciacorta wine as “most excellent, vigorous and sweet”.
While it boasts a long history, the new course of winemaking in Franciacorta began at the beginning of the 1960 with the birth of the first modern wineries.
