According to a report published this week by the Italian news agency ANSA, approximately 25,000 guests attended last weekend’s Franciacorta Wine Festival, a record number for the event.

Guests had the opportunity to tour and taste the wines of 68 Franciacorta wineries and local food products and the cooking of local chefs and restaurants were also featured.

“We brought the public to Franciacorta,” said Cristina Ziliani, media director for the Guido Berlucchi winery and one of the event’s organizers, “through an encounter with the fresh and authentic style of one of the great auteurs of contemporary Italian cuisine,” referring to celebrity chef Davide Oldani who cooked at the winery for the occasion.
