Serious Fun Making Serious Wine

Barbacan has a strong minimal intervention ethos. And we don't just mean the modern interpretation of no additives and biodynamic certification, we mean the whole process is done by hand, from cultivating to bottling and not a tractor or machine in sight - just brute Northern Italian strength of their arms and legs.  Their ancient vines are deep-rooted in 2000 year old soil that's rich in minerally goodness with layers of gneiss, granites, and quartz. That plus their added attention to detail and their love of the land helps create unique DOCG certified wines full of character and elegance with the climate and altitude helping produce luscious red fruit. From vineyard to bottle, their passion and frivolity is evident - just ask their 11 thousand TikTok fans. In fact, their whole social media presence is seriously iconic. They’ve built a cult following with content that includes regular updates of their slanted winery life, climate change activism, expert dance choreo and the proper way to lip-sync to pop songs – bearded and in your pyjamas. These guys are having some serious fun making serious wine.
“We are farmers in the Alps, we preserve pluralism of our ancient native vines and the cultural identity of traditional agronomic practices. Every season we repeat ancient gestures, carrying on the identity of an Alpine people".
