About us

Company details

The excellent wine producing job is something the Biatta family passes on from one generation to the next. Giovanni Biatta, the forefather of “Le Marchesine”, acquired in 1985 the first three hectares in the Franciacorta area.

For at least five generations, though, the family has nurtured its one and only true passion: wine excellence. The Biatta family has very ancient origins from Brescia, its documented existence dates back to 1196, when Giovanni’s great-grandfather, Camillo Biatta, was négociant éleveur, an old noble profession passed from father to son., up to Giovanni.

“Le Marchesine”, small and innovative Franciacorta wine estate, is now one of the most prestigious companies in its league, and in full development in the lucky Lombard area. Under the expert guidance of his father Giovanni, Loris Biatta with his children Alice and Andrea, takes care of the vineyard and of the cellar. From its initial three hectares, the company vineyard has extended reaching 47 hectares, registered in the Doc and Docg lists. Most of the vines are grown on Guyot with 4000-4500 strains per hectares, the rest on Sylvoz with a slightly lower density, with 3200 strains. Even though it is perfectly in line with the productive guidelines dictated by the Franciacorta consortium, “Le Marchesine” as always distinguished itself for its innovative cultivation style, starting with abandoning the outdated pergula system, as soon as Giovanni bought the vineyards, and shortly after the import of the French techniques.

At present production is around 450.000 bottles per year, 230.000 of which are Franciacorta Brut and Extra Brut, 40.000 are Franciacorta Satèn, 30.000 vintage bottles from special years. And 10.000 bottles of vintage cru Secolo Novo. Add also 15.000 bottles of Curtefranca white and 15.000 bottles of Curtefranca red.

The company’s strength lies in various factors that aim and converge towards the best possible product. The philosophy of Le Marchesine goes even beyond a careful selection of the best roots to implant and the use of the same logs of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay which are used in France. Le Marchesine’s philosophy is centered on technological innovation. The most evident example of this is the choice of the cellar’s mechanized pupitres (giropallets), which with a constant rotational movement, allow a possibly even higher result than with manual rotation. It is not by chance that the estate has a proud relationship with a very important institution of the Champagne region: the Champagne enological institute, of which the oenologist from Le Marchesine, Jean Pierre Valade, is a member himself.
