The story of 1701 is a project created by a brother and sister, who six years ago took over one of the oldest wine properties of Franciacorta with over 300 years of history and framed by the walls of an 11th Century villa. A unique place, it is guided by the passion of a group of young entrepreneurs who wish to discover their link to ancient methods of farming.
