An educational journey through Lombardy, Italy
Presented by Jacob Gragg, Brand Ambassador USA

Summary:


Italy’s answer to Champagne, Franciacorta is a small wine-producing area in Lombardy, northern Italy. Nestled in the hills immediately south-east of the foot of Lake Iseo in the Brescia province, this region is famous for its high-quality traditional method sparkling wines. In Franciacorta, there’s a sparkling wine for every taste with varying aging and dosage requirements. Experience the range of Ca’ del Bosca wines as they were meant to be tasted, alongside regional tastes including caviar from Calvisius, the largest sustainable producer of caviar in the world located just a mere 30 km from the vineyard.

About Ca' del Bosco:


The enchanting Ca’ del Bosco story began in the mid-1960s when, in Erbusco, Franciacorta, the Zanella family bought a little house on a hill, locally known as “Ca’ del bosc” and surrounded by a dense grove of chestnut trees. The Ca’ del Bosco fairytale is written in its wines and its vineyards’ extensive weave. Maurizio Zanella saw in Franciacorta the land that would generate the finest fruits, both in still wines and in premium bubblies. The splendid Ca’ del Bosco tales began from this: a fairytale and a dream born to last through time.

“Ca’ del Bosco has been one of the leaders of Franciacorta, the famed metodo classico sparkling wine produced in Lombardia. Proprietor Maurizio Zanella produces one of the zone’s most brilliant cuvées, Anna Maria Clementi, a wine that spends between nine and ten years on its lees."

-Tom Hyland, Forbes 2021

About Jacob Gragg:


It’s only natural that Jacob would represent the Ca’ del Bosco portfolio for Santa Margherita USA. Jacob’s quest for quality, desire to educate and passion for the finer things in life led him to join the group in 2019. He’s been sharing the love for Franciacorta ever since.

In 2009, he set the goal of passing the Master Sommelier exam and garnered experience most notably as the Sommelier at Aria Restaurant in Atlanta, and as Sommelier of The Georgian Room at the Cloister in Sea Island. After the intense restaurant experience, Jacob spent five years working as an Ambassador for a renown Italian producer. He earned his Advanced Sommelier from the Court of Master Sommeliers at the age of 24, making him one of the youngest to have achieved this certification. In addition, Jacob is a Certified Specialist of Wine, Certified Specialist of Spirits and was named one of the Best New Sommeliers of 2012 by Wine & Spirits magazine and is the Founding President of the Southeastern Sommelier Society.

Considered the industry standard for Franciacorta (Lombardia), Ca’ del Bosco is of paramount importance to the Santa Margherita family of wines, serving as the example for unwavering commitment to purity and quality. Today, Ca’ del Bosco is one of the top awarded wineries of Franciacorta receiving more than 40 “Tre Bicchieri” from the Gambero Rosso Food and Wine Guide, Italy’s highest wine award.
