FBIC adds a stellar Tuscan producer to its portfolio

Farsons Beverage Imports Company (FBIC) Limited has recently been entrusted by Brancaia to distribute their award-winning wines locally.

In 1981, Swiss couple Brigitte and Bruno Widmer bought the then abandoned Brancaia estate at Castellina in Chianti as a family retreat. The house was on a hill surrounded by seven hectares of vineyards, and Bruno Widmer was immediately drawn to them and to cultivating them for wine. Bruno, a former partner in a well-known Swiss advertising agency, became immersed in winemaking and decided right from the start that he would only produce wines of the highest quality.

In 1989 the family added the Poppi Vineyard at Radda in Chianti and in 1998, the vineyards in the Maremma just 10km from the Mediterranean coast. Today, Brancaia have 40 hectares of vineyards in Chianti Classico and 40 hectares in the Maremma, with winemaking facilities in each region.

Now managed by Barbara Widmer, Brigitte and Bruno’s daughter, together with her family and a strong and loyal team, Brancaia is today, one of Tuscany’s leading wineries, receiving important national and international awards every year. The wines are successfully sold worldwide.

Brancaia wines are available in selected restaurants, wine boutiques and at Farsonsdirect in Mriehel (www.farsonsdirect.com).
