Berlucchi ’61: the line that celebrates the excellence of Franciacorta

The Berlucchi ’61 line is a celebration of tradition and innovation in the world of Franciacorta, the renowned Italian sparkling wine. Created to commemorate 1961, the year when Guido Berlucchi and Franco Ziliani produced the first Franciacorta, this line embodies the passion, artistry, and dedication that characterize Berlucchi’s production.

The History of Berlucchi

The history of Berlucchi wines begins in the 1950s. Guido Berlucchi, noble country man and owner of the original Borgonato estate, was looking for a technician capable of stabilizing his Pinot del Castello, the white wine he produced with passion. The winemaker Franco Ziliani was the right person at the right time.

Ziliani, in fact, had a vision: to create a wine that could compete with the best French champagnes. Berlucchi, as a refined wine lover, understood the importance of this challenge and accepted it.

After some less fortunate years, in 1961 three thousand bottles of Pinot di Franciacorta were sealed. Uncorked the following year, they turn out to be excellent. Thus was born the first classic method sparkling wine from Franciacorta.
