Barbanera as Tradition and Innovation
The family wine business was founded in 1938, in one of the most beautiful corners of Italy: on the slopes of Monte Cetona, in the heart of the green hills and vineyards of the Tuscan district known as the Valdichiana. Today, Barbanera stands for a dynamic, modern operation concerned mainly with export to Europe and beyond. Initially focusing purely on wines from Tuscany, growing demand in recent years for wines from other Italian Regions such as Puglia and Sicily, has led to a broadening of the range of wines offered - as well as a constant process of updating the winery's technology.
As a result and as a complement Barbanera's own lines, such as Duca di Saragnano and Barbanera itself, wines and their packaging can now be tailor-made to suit customer's needs.
As part of the process of targeting new markets and new trade sectors, the company has also achieved certification in the principal organizational quality control regimes: ISO, IFS and BRC.
In addition, the wines regularly win medals and prizes at the highest level in international competitions. The latest and most prestigious result was the crowning of the 2011 vintage of Toscana Rosso "Vecciano" as Luca Maroni's "Best Red Wine of Italy" in his guide "Annuario dei Migliori Vini Italiani 2014" (The 2014 yearbook of the best Italian wines).
