The Barbaran family’s love for wine began in the 1920s, when Alberto Barbaran supplied the taverns of Treviso and Venezia, his wines transported in horse-drawn carts.
With his combination of family expertise, academic studies, and remarkable entrepreneurial talents, Simeone Albino, the youngest of nine children, followed in his father’s footsteps: starting from nothing, but with passionate commitment, he launched the winery called today Barbaran Vigne e Vini, Barbaran Vineyards and Wines. From the first vinifications, in 1967, to today, the winery has continuously adopted new technologies and the latest equipment. It has grown by striving to recover and preserve the most time-honoured local winemaking traditions, with a special focus on traditional wines, but above all on indigenous grape varieties.
Today, Fabio continues the work begun by his father and mother with impressive skill and effectiveness, retaining his loyal customers in Italy but providing a new thrust to the winery by offering his high-quality, traditional wines to the international market as well.
