Franco Francesco was established in 1911 in San Damiano d'Asti, a small town in the Asti area in southern Piedmont. Among these fertile lands in this particular microclimate, on soils rich in geological history, there are hills dominated by rocks, meadows, forests, ancient castles and roman churches. Francesco here in 1933 planted the first vineyards where grow their important grapes, giving elegant wines rich of primary aromas; thus begins the story of Franco Francesco.
The great enthusiasm that inspired Francesco has also affected the sons, decided to follow him in this exciting adventure. The correct starting point is the constant research of production techniques most appropriate to ensure, from the vineyard to the cellar, the highest possible quality to the final product.
Over the years the Colline Alfieri, in the happily lying hills at the confluence of three major territories, Monferrato, Roero and Langhe, in this fluvial environment, with a cool temperate climate have been planted vineyards of different types.
Today, the company is run by his sons Maurizio and Francesco involved by the enthusiasm they wanted to engage in this great adventure and, above all, see realized their children dream, "grown up we want to produce only great wines" .... With great good will and perseverance of the goals, we have set ourselves: to be able to introduce our wines outside our territory, to increase the area planted and invest in the best technologies to produce wines of higher quality, while maintaining the awareness that to produce good wines you must take care of the grapes and build a strong bond with the land.
