Cristina Ziliani – daughter of Franciacorta creator and co-founder of Guido Berlucchi Franco Ziliani – has inherited the same pioneering and entrepreneurial spirit that allowed her father to start what is now one of the most important quality wine regions in Italy.
Since 1981, Cristina has been part of the company administration, but it was in 1990 that she found her vocation – becoming the Marketing, Communication and Hospitality Manager for Guido Berlucchi.
As an active promoter, sharing the wine culture of this national territory, among other things, Cristina Ziliani has led this historic winery to create a model of hospitality and dissemination for the territory that opens its doors to an audience of over 20,000 visitors a year, 15% of which come from abroad.
Since 2017, Cristina, together with her two brothers, have owned and managed Guido Berlucchi. Today, Guido Berlucchi is the largest winery of Franciacorta by way of vineyard hectares and revenue.
