Ca’ del Bosco continues to push the boundaries of Italian winemaking and wins a new prestigious award. The influential American magazine Wine Enthusiast has elected Ca’ del Bosco as European Winery of the Year 2023. The award will be presented in Miami in February 2024 at the Wine Star Awards gala ceremony. The award adds to a year that has seen the achievement of many goals including the completion of the winery and vineyard heritage.
After 52 vintages, Ca’ del Bosco can finally show itself with its final “face“, the one that was once only dreamed of and then, over the years, took shape. A long journey that began in 1968, when the first vineyard was planted, and that today is revealed in its completeness, marking a historic milestone for the winery.
Today, with a vineyard estate of more than 280 hectares spread over 11 of Franciacorta’s 19 communes, Ca’ del Bosco has almost reached its goal of vineyard area under pre-established conduction. A dream if you think that only in the 1970s-80s the hectares under conduction were 13. A very important milestone that makes Ca’ del Bosco the custodian of an important portion of territory, strictly conducted following the protocol of certified organic viticulture to protect the soils and the organisms that live in them.
A work of many years that also involved the spaces in the cellar, redefined to better enhance the winemaking and aging of the wines and celebrate them in a series of evocative spaces, with a scenography that allows visitors to stimulate and explore their senses.
An important project born from the will of the Members of Ca’ del Bosco, the Marzotto and Zanella Families, who have always been convinced of the potential of the territory, to be enhanced and expressed in excellence in their wines.
“I am honored by this prestigious award, which comes at an historic moment that marks a turning point for us: we have reached where – over fifty years ago -we set our sights in terms of size both in the vineyard and in the winery, now we have to work steadily to continue to deserve what we have achieved by always aiming for qualitative excellence,” said Maurizio Zanella, founder and president of Ca’ del Bosco.

At Ca’ del Bosco, a single objective determines and defines production, from selection in the vineyard to bottling. Quality of the highest level, better known as excellence.
