Beyond my Franciacorta Real Story tastings to be held next week in California (click here for details), there are a number of fantastic wine tasting and wine trade events where you can taste a wide range of Franciacorta wines over the next three months.

The following event previews come from the FranciacortaUSA e-letter published by Balzac Communications, a Napa-based PR firm that represents the appellation in the U.S.
