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.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 visitorsare greeted each year for tours and tastings.Today, Berlucchi is managed by Franco Ziliani’s three children, Arturo, Paolo, and Cristina, who continue to push forward on the path set out by their father and Guido. They have taken the lead on promoting Franciacorta as a global wine destination, enhancing the environmental stewardship of the winery’s production and sharingItaly’s finest sparkling wine with the world.I MODERNI
