• My name is Marilena Barbera
    and I am a winegrower.
    I live and make my wines in Menfi, Sicily.

I am very happy to announce that the Slow Wine Guide for 2020 has recognized the outstanding quality of all the wines I submitted to their tastings in the past weeks, awarding Cantine Barbera with The Bottle.

Furthermore, Ammàno #6 - harvest 2018 was awarded with the Vino Slow, a special prize that is is bestowed upon those wines that represent a true expression of terroir, originality, and history. Quality-price ratio is another factor that the editors consider for this prize. 

The Guide will be officially revealed next Saturday October 12th at the Teatro Verdi in Montecatini Terme from 10.30 am, wine tasting starts at 2.30 pm at Terme del Tettuccio SPA.
