Barba, Abruzzo

The Estate

Despite its huge dimension, Barba winery is a family business. It is located in the north part of Abruzzo, in central-eastern Italy, along the valley of the Vomano River and on the surrounding hills, in the towns of Cellino Attanasio, Atri, Pineto and Roseto. It extends on about 680 hectares, of which 170 are planted with vines, fruit trees, and trees for lumber, and about 500 are used for animal raising and industrial business.

Philosophy

The land has a deep heritage in the wine and benefits from an suitable microclimate with long sunny days and cool summer evenings and sea breezes in the winter. These conditions are favourable for wine production, nurtured by passion and great know-how.
Barba wines don’t depend on luck, but are the result of attention to detail during every phase of production, from the vine to the winery. It is just this combination of simple principles and good ideas which defines our unique style, always in search of quality.

The People

The property belongs to the Barba family, which is made up of the three brothers Giovanni, Vincenzo and Domenico Barba and their families. Giovanni, who has a degree in agriculture, is the chief executive officer and works full time, with his assistants, in all sectors of the business.
