Young graduate in economics who returns to his origins by resuming the family tradition.
The connection to the land and the vine for him has a recent origin, even if it has its roots in a family heritage of which he is the fourth generation. In Canale, a town in the Roero in the province of Cuneo, the surname Barbero is known thanks to the creation in the 1940s of "The Barbero group", that is the "Cantine Sterzi" of Verona, the "Enrico Serafino" of Canale, passing through the production of the "Frangelico" in Caracas rather than the acquisition of the "Barbieri", producer of Aperol. The group is then sold, but Giacomo Barbero decides to resume the family wine production to which he feels particularly attached. After graduation he worked in the summer in a winery in his country, where he had the opportunity to take his first steps in the vineyard and understand the steps of winemaking and warehouse management. It was then in October 2015 that he officially started his business by managing a vineyard in Vezza d’Alba, while buying other lands in the Roero to expand production. At the moment it presents four typical labels of the area on the market: Langhe Favorita, Roero Arneis, Barbera d'Alba and Langhe Nebbiolo, but its aim is to expand the range by offering wines that best unleash the characteristics of its land.
