Fratelli Barba, Abruzzo
Situated on the slopes of the valley of the Vomano river, between the sea and the foothills of the Apennines, the long-standing family estate, Fratelli Barba, now cultivates some 68 ha of vines in the areas of Colle Morino, Casal Thaulero and Vignafranca. In 1993 they made considerable investment in the vineyards, replacing the traditional pergola system with trellises to bring down yields, carefully selecting vines for propagation, introducing rigorous sorting at harvest and building a state of the art, modern winery. They are now producing wines that reflect the gentle, warm, temperate climate of Abruzzo while retaining freshness and elegance.
