Any celebration can be improved by a toast. At Il Bar in Piazza, discover the fizzy allure of Ca' del Bosco and their famed Franciacorta . Whether red, white, or rosé, brightly spumante (sparkling) or lightly frizzante (semi-sparkling), Italy’s effervescent vini are the perfect pick to celebrate the holidays.

Franciacorta is Italy’s most prestigious and elegant bubbly, dry and complex with a fine, persistent perlage. The ultimate tradition for holiday festivities, Franciacorta isn’t only for celebrations: it’s for everyday, a welcome guest at the table, from aperitivo to dolci, and all courses in between.



The name “Franzacurta”, which dates back to 1277, refers to the area south of Lake Iseo, between the Oglio and Mella rivers, in the northern region of Lombardia. Both white and rosé, Franciacorta wines are Italy’s most prestigious and elegant bubbly, produced with the metodo classico, or "traditional method" where wines undergo a secondary fermentation in the bottle.

The grapes are all grown exclusively in the are of Franciacorta and the resulting vini tend to be dry and complex with a fine, persistent frizzante (semi-sparkling) quality.

To bring the cultural experience of holiday bubbles to NYC we are collaborating with Ca' del Bosco to introduce their famed Franciacorta selections. Take a seat, have a sip, and learn all about Ca' del Bosco!

The enchanting Ca’ del Bosco story began in the mid-1960s when in Erbusco, Franciacorta, Annamaria Clementi Zanella bought a little house on a hill, locally known as “Ca’ del bosc,” surrounded by dense chestnut woods.

Maurizio Zanella, Annamaria’s son, saw in Franciacorta the land that would generate the finest fruits for both still wines and premium bubbles: his winery was the first and best expression of the potential of this wine territory. This position was reached thanks to the enthusiasm and passion of Maurizio Zanella, who in the early 1970s followed his artistic vocation and became a leader in the Italian wine renaissance, turning a house in a chestnut wood into a vanguard winery. The Ca’ del Bosco tales began like this: from a dream, to a fairytale born to last through time.



Join us at Il Bar in Piazza for a wide variety of Italian cheeses, cured meats, lightly fried bites, fresh oysters, and – of course – celebratory bubbles, for an aperitivo or before dining in any of our full-service restaurants. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis; Il Bar in Piazza does not accept reservations.


Ti aspettiamo - see you there!
