BackgroundAt the heart of the world's favorite spirited beverages you will find Cinzano, with over 260 years of tradition and excellence. With classic appeal and versatile brands, Cinzano's legacy is sure to continue for generations to come. In 1757, CINZANO's two brothers, Giovanni Giacomo and Carolo Stefano Cinzano, Master Distillers, opened a small shop in Turin where a dream soon became a reality. As their traditional Vermouth production rapidly increased, so did their reputation for quality. The Savoy monarchs beckoned the brothers expertise to create a sparkling wine to emulate the popular French Champagne of the early 19th century. The result was the birth of Cinzano Sparkling Wines in 1850. The Cinzano range of sparkling wines includes both sweet and dry versions, each with their own unique characteristics.
