Italian company producer of spirits founded by Carlo Gancia in 1850 with the aim of creating the first sparkling wine, made from Italian grapes, using the typical techniques of champagne. After years of study uninterrupted, Carlo was able to solve the problem that has plagued him until 1865, ie the breaking of bottles for excess sugar, finally resulting in a kind of champagne-based Moscato very similar to that of France but with the aroma and absolutely unique character, the progenitor of Asti spumante. In 1878 the Fratelli Gancia get, at the Paris exhibition, the recognition of "Unique Italian company producer of champagne", the Italian royal family grants permission to use the formula "Bianco Gancia, vermouth of Aristocracy and Kingship" and Garibaldi actually lends itself to being the first "ambassador" of the company.
