The first organic Franciacorta
Come visit us at the winery
To follow the progress, from vineyard to glass, of wines that are conceived, cared for and produced according to the principles of organic and sustainable viticulture.
The visit starts from far away, from the explanation of the pedoclimatic origins of the Franciacorta territory and from the history of its enological evolution.
It is in this background that reside the reasons for our work, which wants to emphasize the natural talent of an area historically devoted to wine production.
We will narrate you the origins of this territory, with a permeable soil because rich in sand and silt and poor in clay.
The same territory from which our precious wines are born, which constitute a unique production because it is characterized by different microclimates, influenced by the ancient glacier and the presence of the lake.
A short video will guide you through the story of Barone Pizzini, the development of the winery and the first organic Franciacorta.
Dive in nature, walk through the vineyards
After the introduction it will be easier to observe the vineyards with a critical eye, recognizing the elements described above and seeing how we apply the rules of organic viticulture.
Our lands are spread over different areas, allowing us to channel all the different characteristics of this variegated territory in the wines we produce.
We will walk together among the rows adjacent to the cellar, where we’ll explain the various stages of cultivation and where you can personally bear witness to the well-being of the plants, surrounded by a rich ecosystem.
Explore the winery and discover the winemaking processes
Upon returning to the winery, built according to green building criteria, we will continue in the two main work areas: the first, dedicated to winemaking, and the second, which contains the barriques and the bottles aging on yeasts.
The guide will explain our production method in depth, depending on the preparation and the questions of the group.
Be curious, we will reply with passion to all your questions!

What to see in the surroundings
Discover an extraordinary territory
Franciacorta is a land of natural and cultural sights. Take advantage of the visit to our cellar to immerse yourself in an environment full of wonders, of which our wine wants to be an expression. Here are the places we suggest to our visitors.
Monastery of San Pietro in Lamosa
Founded on a rocky rise that dominates the peat bogs, and also linked in the name (Lamosa) to the marshy nature of the places, San Pietro is the oldest and last standing of the Cluniac foundations of the Sebino.
Madonna del Corno
The sanctuary was presumably built in the ‘500, according to the legend, after the apparition of the Madonna to a soldier tired of fighting. Located at the peak of the southern rocky part of Monte Cognolo, it can be reached by foot, with a nice walk in the hills, both from Iseo and Provaglio.
Torbiere del Sebino Nature Reserve
The Torbiere del Sebino Nature Reserve, declared a “wetland of international importance”, is considered a priority area for biodiversity in the Padana Plain. This is due to the variety of habitats and species, aquatic-marsh, present in the area, some of which are rare or at risk of extinction in Lombardy and in Italy.
