Erbusco is to Franciacorta as Epernay is to Champagne. In other words, Erbusco is the moral "capital" of Franciacorta, both for being the epicenter of the region and, above all, because the best vineyards for the production of Franciacorta DOCG are located on the morainic hills of this municipality. Strengthened by this primacy, a group of friends in autumn 2004 decided to give life to a new wine-making reality, centered exclusively on Erbusco. The name Derbusco Cives, "citizens of Erbusco", refers to a sixteenth-century spelling in the name of the city which in turn descends from the Longobard "der busche" which means wood. A young company with the desire to make quality without compromise (therefore producing a limited number of bottles), which in every phase of the production chain uses ancestral methods to create a high quality product, with attention to every detail.
