The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines are grown in the estate vineyards of Arzelle, Rovere, San Carlo, and Ragnoli; in the heart of the Franciacorta DOCG, at a high density of 10,000 vines/ha. The Morainic soils were formed during the last Ice Age; gravely, stony soils are well-drained and rich in minerals. The vineyards are greatly influenced by the cold winds from the Alps, however, the continental climate is mitigated by the effects of Lake daIseo. The Berlucchi vines are Guyot and spurred cordon trained. For over 20 years Berlucchi has been at the forefront of innovation and sustainability projects, such as vigor mapping the use of satellite images and multispectral cameras that capture plant's photosynthetic activity and consequently their state of health in real-time, which allows for bespoke cultivation; soil zoning and increasing biodiversity in viticulture. In 2016, the three-year conversion to organic viticulture was completed; low-impact products have been used since 2000. Cover crops, integrated pest management, natural fertilizers, and hand-harvesting

The Berlucchi family winery was founded in 1955 by Guido Berlucchi, Franco Ziliani, and Giorgio Lanciani. Together, they transformed Franciacorta into one of Italy’s most prestigious regions for the production of sparkling wine. Franciacorta’s renaissance began with Guido Berlucchi’s creation of the very first Classic Method wine in 1961. With a pioneering spirit, Berlucchi introduced and promoted expertise that had not existed in Franciacorta until that point, inspiring many other passionate, forward-thinking producers to follow suit. Together, they transformed this region into the crown jewel of Italian winemaking. From their estate in Borgonato, Guido Berlucchi follows a philosophy of high-quality viticulture that is environmentally sustainable. In 1962 they introduced ‘Max Rose’, Italy’s very first Classic Method Rose. After nearly 60 successful years at the helm of the company, Franco Ziliani passed his expertise onto the next generation, his children Cristina, Arturo, and Paolo. In 2022, Guido Berlucchi was awarded the prestigious ‘Winery of the Year’ by Gambero Rosso.
