1701 is an adventure that, as often happens in the wine world, is born from the association of a group of friends. Involved in the leadership of one of the oldest companies of Franciacorta, professional entrepreneurs find themselves increasingly linked to the rural origins, embodying in their 1701 manifesto idea of Franciacorta and viticulture.
They are the brothers Federico and Silvia Stefini formally to found and lead the project today and the cellar of 1701. Together with their collaborators take care of the eleven hectares of one of the oldest wine estate in the area, three hundred years of history and an extraordinary vineyard four hectares surrounded by the walls of the eleventh century.
It works on the basis of a shared decision with conviction: the principles and methods of organic viticulture and biodynamic. Such an approach, far from forcing and chemical intervention, it is also a philosophy of life, a way to approach the vineyard, understand it and respect it in its life cycle until, in the bottle, it expresses its full vitality, character and virtues: first and utmost authenticity of the terroir, in all its expressions.
The current production of 1701 is less than seven thousand bottles.
