Cristina is part of the "first family" of Italian sparkling wine as her father, Franco Ziliani, was the original winemaker for company founder, Guido Berlucchi. In 1955, Franco made the first sparkling wine in the Franciacorta region and ultimately created the category of Franciacorta as the finest expression of Italian sparkling wine.
As Head of Communications and Public Relations, Cristina has been the voice for Berlucchi Franciacorta for the past 30 years – educating the world on how Franciacorta is Italy’s answer to Champagne.
Today Cristina leads the Company together with her brothers (Paolo and Arturo) and her still-active 82-year-old father Franco. Berlucchi Franciacorta currently produces a total of 4 million bottles per year, and is accredited as the first producer of DOCG Franciacorta bubbles! We can't wait to hear more!
