Monticelli Brusati

Overview

The paradise of Italian-made bubbles

We’re just a few kilometres from Brescia and Lake Iseo, in the heart of Franciacorta. A land rich in culture, history and food and wine traditions. A triumph of rows of vineyards, rolling hills and small villages. Like Monticelli Brusati, a small centre consisting of no less than 14 tiny hamlets of medieval origin. Explore them one at a time, perhaps on a relaxing day, on foot or by bike.

Don’t forget to visit the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Rosa or the church of San Zenone, the patron saint of the town, which boast frescoes dating back to the 15th century. Or a detour to the Waterfall Trail in the nearby Gaina Valley, which winds its way along a small but impressive canyon.

The Monticelli area has practically always been devoted to viticulture. And it could not be otherwise, since here we’re in the heart of an area under the protection of the Franciacorta Consortium. Dozens of historic wine cellars are waiting for you to taste the famous Made in Italy bubbles.

A stop at one of the many osterias scattered around the four corners of the municipality is a must, where dishes of an almost unique gastronomy await, capable of playing on two fronts, with peasant cuisine based on meat from the hinterland and fish from nearby Lake Iseo.
