Franciacorta, Italy’s finest sparkling wine, joins as an Official Sponsor of Nolcha Fashion Week: New York Spring/Summer 2015, which runs September 4th – 8th, 2014.

Franciacorta is the first Italian wine produced exclusively by the traditional method of re-fermentation in the same bottle, and the first to obtain Italy’s highest appellation award of DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita).

“Franciacorta sparkling wines, with their elegance and top quality, have a natural affinity with high fashion, and we are thrilled to be a part of Nolcha during New York Fashion Week.”  Maurizio Zanella, President of Consorzio Franciacorta.

Franciacorta comes in many styles, from fruity rosé to brut to vintage with lots of complex flavors from extra aging, as well as a style unique to Franciacorta, Satèn, which means silky and is made from all white grapes with a hint less bubbles than the brut style.

Guests will be able to enjoy Franciacorta throughout Nolcha Fashion Week: New York at the runway shows held at Pier 59th showcasing independent fashion designers from around the globe as well as various other events throughout the schedule.

Arthur Mandel, Nolcha Fashion Week Co-Founder comments: “As we expand our partnerships with international brands, we welcome Franciacorta as the Official Sparkling Wine of Nolcha Fashion Week: New York. Franciacorta aligns well with our roster of high fashion independent designers and serves sought after industry attendees a taste of Italian quality.”

This season’s events will run September 4th – 8th, 2014, including individual and collective runway shows, an exclusive bloggers brunch, fashion lounge, networking events and an official fashion week closing party.
