My name is Marilena Barbera, and I am proprietor and winemaker at Cantine Barbera, our family winery based in Sicily.
Our commitment is to produce quality wines only with the grapes we've grown and selected in Menfi, in our Tenuta Belicello.
We believe in the magic of making wine, and making it in a fully sustainable way.
We use indigenous yeasts for fermentation, which we select and reproduce in our vineyards. Our wines do not contain GMO and have very low levels of sulfites. We do not use concentration or micro-oxigenation techniques, and we stabilize our wines only using cold temperatures. Filtration is performed through natural cellulose layers, that we compost after use, as well as sludges deriving from water treatment. All our processes are constantly monitored in order to implement the quality and the full traceability of all our wines, and to guarantee environmental respect and protection.
Our customers are people who care about food and about the way it is produced, who are interested in the traditional culture that is beyond a bottle of good wine, who respect the work that winegrowers do to achieve quality, and to make the pleasure of wine possible everyday.
