It is difficult to describe the uniqueness of a Franciacorta wine without knowing the eclectic Franco Ziliani. He is the winemaker who, along with the noble and refined Guido Berlucchi, changed the destiny of an entire region, making it one of the most prized areas in the world for sparkling wines made with the classic method.
To add a touch of contemporary creativity to the management of the company, at his side today are his three children: Cristina, Arturo and Paolo. It is they who launched the Berlucchi ’61, Berlucchi ’61 Nature and Palazzo Lana Riserva lines. But above all, thanks to them, the company is now oriented towards total sustainability.
And then there are all the people who live and work with us in Franciacorta. The friends and colleagues who believed in this project from day one, and with whom we now share a product that is unique, exceptional. And recognisable.
Historic documents dating back to the powerful convent of Santa Giulia da Brescia provide the first recorded evidence of Franciacorta’s excellence in wine production way back in the 8th century AD.
