April 3rd – Franciacorta is proud to announce a new three-year partnership with the Television Academy as the Official Sparkling Wine of the Emmy® Awards. A partnership which began in 2020 has been expanded with this important new agreement in which Franciacorta will be sole Italian wine partner in Los Angeles on the occasion of the awards and all the main events leading up to it.
The 75th edition of the Emmy Awards will take place on Monday 18 September in Los Angeles and be aired live on FOX and the main international broadcasting channels. The winners will celebrate the handing over of the prestigious statuette with Franciacorta at the event’s media centre in the presence of national and international journalists and photographers, and once again at the Franciacorta Bar at the Governors Gala, the glamorous after-party celebrating the Emmy winners and an exclusive line up of global television celebrities and personalities.
The Franciacorta Bar will also be present at the main events running up to the Emmy Awards, including the Creative Emmy Awards for those working behind the scenes – set designers, costume designers, picture and sound editors, animators, special effects, etc. – and the Performer Nominees Celebration event for all the actors, producers, writers and directors nominated.
“We are proud that the Television Academy has chosen Franciacorta as Official Sparkling Wine partner for the next three years”, says Silvano Brescianini, President of Consorzio Franciacorta. “It’s a long-term partnership that not only guarantees an important presence in the US market, which is growing rapidly for us, but that also offers our wineries a great visibility and an exclusive positioning internationally.”
The Emmy Awards are the most prestigious event of the year for American television, celebrating the most outstanding achievements and talented performers from the entire industry. Television’s growing success in recent years as a major entertainment and family enjoyment choice has attracted international film and theatre actors and created an increasingly loyal worldwide audience.
“Franciacorta is the ideal partner for the Emmys and the Television Academy,” said Frank Scherma, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for the Television Academy. “Their varietals and sparkling wines are renowned for their quality, and we are thrilled to offer them to our nominees, members, partners and guests throughout the season. I can’t think of a better way to extend hospitality and celebration than with a glass of one of Franciacorta’s sparkling wines!”
Consorzio Franciacorta is proud to be able to set the seal to a three-year agreement with the Emmy Awards in a way which encompasses prestigious partners representing and celebrating excellence in a range of spheres, including Milan Fashion Week – via a partnership with Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana – 1000 Miglia, Porsche and Michelin Guide.

Consorzio Franciacorta is the body which guarantees and monitors Franciacorta production standards, as the first Italian wine produced exclusively with the bottle refermentation process to have obtained the Protected and Guaranteed Designation of Origin (DOCG) denomination in 1995. The consortium’s work is developed in various activities: from safeguarding the brand and the area, and promoting the product in ongoing work on the production regulations and standards, to raising consumer awareness and promoting Franciacorta as an expression of an area, a wine and a production method. Founded on 5 March 1990, its head offices are in Erbusco, in the heart of Franciacorta. The consortium is presided over by Silvano Brescianini and has 122 wine estate members.
