As one of the important producers of Franciacorta DOCG Contadi Castaldi has recently renovated an old plant of terracotta tiles. Still using the old cellars and tunnels the upper part is a modern production and event area. This fact of working on different floors gives the possibility to work with limited use of technology by the power of gravity and not pumps, thus disturbing the wine as little as possible. The lands cover 120 hectares of own vineyards of which 85% are planted with white grapes, Pinot Bianco and Chardonnay. These grapes are the base of the Franciacorta Metodo Classico DOCG, which accounts for 680.000 bottles of the total annual production of 750.000 bottles. The rest is Terre di Franciacorta DOC and a small production of Vino Liqouroso. At the moment only 10% of the production is exported abroad. The aging of the DOCG requires space and the old tunnels have a capacity of 3.000.000 bottles. At Contadi Castaldi tradition and innovation go well hand in hand and this winery is the only one in Franciacorta to have their own laboratory for the development of the quality.

Additional information: Main products: 5 different Franciacorta Metodo Classico DOCG, Terre di Franciacorta DOC, Vino Liqouroso.
