Azienda Agricola Fratelli Berlucchi SrlBerlucchi is the pioneering winery of Franciacorta wine. They were the first to create a sparkling wine in the area, transforming a thousand-year-old local wine heritage into a world-class wine destination. Nestled in the foothills of Alps, is the wine area of Franciacorta. It is here, that in 1955 Berlucchi paved the first stones to transforming a local wine heritage into the seat of Italy’s finest sparkling wines, that are beloved the world over. The story begins with Guido Berlucchi and Franco Ziliani. The former was a descendent of the noble Lana de’ Terza family and the latter a young enologist from the Alba Wine School who had developed a reputation for consulting important wineries. Guido sought Franco’s advice for what he thought was a singular issue – how to stabilize his white “Pinot del Castello” wine – and instead, found a partner with whom to change history. Franco recognized something that Guido, for all his passion for winemaking, missed: the incredible potential of his family’s estate to make sparkling wine that could compete with the likes of Cham-pagne. The 17th-century underground cellar maintained the right environment for riddling, and the mineral-rich moraine soils were perfect for growing pinot varieties. Franco’s vision and Guido’s passion were just the right pairing needed to embark on this pioneering path. The two founded Berlucchi winery in 1955 and released their first limited-production of 3000 bottles of Pinot di Franciacorta in 1961 to great success. This pivotal year continues to be commemorated by the winery’s ’61 label. The first 1961 bottle is displayed in the cavernous underground cellar, where thousands of visitors are greeted each year for tours and tastings.
