In 1988 a long bearded architect-engineer bought a plot of land on the slopes of Monte Orfano.
Stubbornness and determination of the owner were rewarded in 2011 when the first harvest was collected. The encouraging results compelled to expand and innovate, always keeping tradition very well in mind. Barbalonga (which translates into long beard from the local dialect) wine is the perfect synthesis of its owner personality’s traits: passion for winemaking, attention to detail, love for the land and – last but not least – his long beard.
