Bold wines on the slopes of Camonica Valley

Cantina Bignotti Valle Camonica

The experience

Andrea and Marco are the youngest members of the Luscietti-Bignotti family business. They have the honor (and the responsibility) of managing the historic Camonica Valley winery. They put effort and passion in their work, interpreting the vocation of this mostly hilly and mountainous land which breeds strong cultivars. The terraced vineyards develop on steep slopes, sometimes exceeding 70%, and produce remarkable wines. The first Camonica Valley wine bottle was produced in 1998. Cultivar delle Volte red wine is a blend of Merlot and Barbera; it is the produce of the historical vines cultivated by nonno Pietro since the fifties.
The new generation of wine makers welcomes us in the wine cellar between steel tanks and oak barrels and offers us a comprehensive experience: they explain the production techniques, the bottling process, and an introduction to specific sommelier terminology during our wine tasting. We will look at different glass shapes and how they enhance bouquet and taste, and will train our noses to detect the aromatic ingredients hidden in a glass of white, aged and young reds, or a prestigious traditional method champagne. The explanation of Paolo, the winery manager, and the wine tasting is enriched by a selection of local cheeses and cured meats.
