Profile of Bersi Serlini

Bersi Serlini is one of the oldest wineries in Franciacorta, Italy’s premier wine region for bubbly. It was founded in 1886 on a site where an order of Cluny monks had settled in the 11th century and cultivated the vineyards. They experimented with new viticultural techniques and left the Bersi Serlini family, centuries later with a valuable “savoir-faire” that has enabled them to carry on where the monks left off. The location is stunning, close to Lake Iseo and set amid picturesque vineyards. The winery and hospitality area has been renovated by Italian designer Flavio Albanese, giving the impressive property a modern and luminous appearance through the use of glass and wood that is striking and contemporary.

The quality of the terroir, particularly the soil is one of the strongest assets of Bersi Serlini and indeed the entire region of Franciacorta, which enables the sparkling whites and rosés to combine an excellent acidity with delicate fruity flavors and yeasty creaminess. Nestled between the Pianura Padana and the Pre-Alps, cold mountain winds rush over the lake from the mountains, meeting the warm winds blown from the Pianura Padana which creates a unique, fresh microclimate that nurtures their grapes, spread out over 30 hectares. The harvest is carried out in August, completely by hand. The wines are produced by the Franciacorta method, and Bersi Serlini uses Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Noir to make their wide range of wine styles including Franciacorta sparkling Brut, Satèn, Extra Brut and Rosè.
