Berlucchi 61 Celebrates 50th Anniversary

BruteRoseBerlucchi ’61 celebrates its 50th anniversary of the magical year of their first wine,
its creators, and the decade of optimism, experimentation and exploration.

Berlucchi’s two flagship Franciacorta wines and two Cuvées, Cuvee 61 Brut and Cuvee 61 Rose, crafted exclusively for the U.S. market are fashioned from the classic sparkling wine grapes Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Guido Berlucchi and Franco Ziliani are unanimously given the credit for having been the first to understand the wine-growing potential of Franciacorta. But in the realm of ideas, paternity and primogeniture rarely guarantee survival or success: what is also needed is determination and ability to keep in step with new developments, changing consumer tastes as well as viticulture and winemaking innovation.

As the No. 1 Metodo Classico sparkling wine producer in Italy, with over 40 percent market share, Berlucchi is unique in that it produces its wines in the classic Champagne method modeled after the famous méthode Champenoise.

The primary philosophy guiding this winery was laid out by founder Franco Ziliani: produce wines of quality, at affordable prices, in quantities that will make them easily available in every region of Italy, and to a broad group of serious consumers.

Berlucchi has become synonymous with classic method sparkling wine, the bottle for that occasion and everyday enjoyment alike, for both festive toasts and through a meal.
