The Italian wine label of Bellavista was founded in the year 1977, in Franciacorta by Vittorio Moretti. What was once a small, family-owned wine brand, got developed into a technologically-sophisticated winery in about three decades’ time.
The vineyards from where grapes are sourced for these wines are located on top of the Bellavista Hill, which explains the reason for the name of this label. Today, the Moretti family owns 198 hectares of land in one of Italy’s wine-rich areas of Franciacorta.
There are around 107 vineyards located in the Alpine foothills, with close proximity to the Lake Iseo and Monte Orfano. The climate, soil and the overall terroir of this place helps the grapes to express themselves fully well when they become ripe and nice. Grapes are neatly hand-picked and sorted according to the vineyards from where they were picked.
The winemaking principle followed here is to be as close to nature as possible in all the processes starting from the vineyards to the wine. Some of the popular Bellavista wines are:
