OUR WINERY

THE WINERY

Our winery is located in Cazzago San Martino. Here we dedicate ourselves to the vinification of our Franciacorta wines with passion and dedication. Since the beginning we decided to invest in innovative, technological and efficient equipment. In particular, we know how important the pressing of the grapes is in order to obtain a high-quality must and wine, for this reason in our cellar you can find a Willmes Sigma press. It has many advantages compared to a traditional press, among them:

  • 50% less pressure on the grapes thanks to the double membrane technology, fewer rotations and fewer pressing cycles.
  • Gentle grape processing results in only 2% lees, so net juice yield and must quality are greatly increased.
  • Vertical must draining channels allow for a more natural descent of the juice, maintaining the quality characteristics unaltered.

In addition, all tanks are made of steel, they are thermo-conditioned and insulated. This allows us to have not only a better control of the wine temperature, but also a great energy saving in storage.

THE WELCOME

In the desire to meet our customers, exchange opinions with wine lovers and show our reality, we are building our welcolming area in the municipality of Calino, in the heart of Franciacorta and surrounded by the morainic hills.

Here PIETRALUCE will have the opportunity, in a very pleasant and welcoming environment, to meet all those who want to know us better. PIETRALUCE wants to offer the opportunity to have a pleasant experience, even beyond wine, where nature, hospitality and sharing will be of immense pleasure
