Set in the foothills of the Alps, Berlucchi was the first to start producing sensational Franciacorta sparkling wines that are today famed all over the world. The story of this pioneering producer began with Guido Berlucchi, a local landowner, and Franco Ziliani, a young winemaker who had started his career consulting with many leading wineries. The two quickly realised the exceptional potential of Guido’s family estate to create top quality sparkling wines and collaborated to found the Berlucchi label in 1955.
