Monique Soltani and Wine Oh TV will travel to the Franciacorta region of Lombardy to explore its unique wines and culture
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/03/2013 -- Founder and host of Wine Oh TV Monique Soltani has announced that she will be traveling to the Franciacorta wine region of Lombardy, Italy in early September in order to cover the wines and culture of the region for a new video series.
Franciacorta is one of only a handful of wines with a controlled designation of origin (DOCG) designation in Lombardy. Soltani will be traveling to the “great amphitheatre of vineyards” south of Lake Iseo in the northern Italian province of Brescia, within Lombardy. Once producing only still wines, the Franciacorta DOCG is now known exclusively for its sparkling wines.
Last year, almost 14 million bottles of Franciacorta wine were sold, an impressive number considering the region has only been producing it’s now-lauded sparkling wine for the past 50 years.
“I’m so thrilled to travel to and taste the wines of the Franciacorta region,” Soltani said. “I’m learning so much about the region already. I recently learned that Franciacorta was named the official toast of Milan Fashion Week. Italy is very proud of Franciacorta—along with Prada, Ferrari, and so many other of the finest Made In Italy products.”
“This trip couldn't come at a better time,” she said. “The holidays are right around the corner, which of course is a perfect time to break out the bubbly. I can’t wait to share my adventures with Wine Oh TV’s audience when I return.”
Wine Oh TV has also just completed their video series “Traveling in Tuscany,” in which Soltani explored wines of the Tuscany region, particularly the legendary red wines of the Chianti Classico DOCG.
