BELLAVISTA was founded by Vittorio Moretti in 1977. He was a businessman whose vision was to transform a small family-run concern of a few hectares of vineyards on the Bellavista Hill, in the Lombardy region of North Central Italy, into a fully-blown wine-making establishment. He has certainly achieved his aim – today the Moretti family have 203 hectares planted with vines for the production of Franciacorta. These are DOCG wines, made in the same method as champagne, with second fermentation in bottle, and are widely regarded as Italy's finest sparkling wine. Bellavista are Franciacorta specialists, who use traditional presses and around 90 base wines to create their cuvées, some of which have been fermented in small oak casks. With artisanal attention to the minutest detail, Bellavista produce an impressive range of elegantly crafted wines – a timeless classic in every glass.
