About This Wine:
“A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” It was an observation that countless Europeans took to heart during the 1700s, 1800s and 1900s as they sought a better way of life in the Americas.
That is the story of the Barberis family, which moved from Italy to Argentina. They had founded the Barberis Winery in Piedmont in 1895, and 70 years later, they were producing wine in a new place: the Mendoza growing region of Argentina. As Adrian Barberis put it, “After many years of hard work, our dreams came true.”
Today, “Familia Barberis” Malbec is a highly sought-after wine in Argentina, and you’re about to find out why. The grapes to craft the wine came from some of the region’s top vineyards, and then blended to perfection. It’s a dream come true in a wine glass.
