The neighborhood, the place where they live, the place where this soil is tilled; this is Santa Barbara. Rich and pleasant nourishment for the wine. An ancient work, gentle and conscious, allows to create harmony, to keep it, like a promise. It's not the farmers who create the landscape, it is the wine itself which continuously improves its details. The name "barbara" comes from Latin "barbarus", which means "foreign". It can be dated back with certainty from a 6th century lombard-germanic military outpost. It hosts the offspring of ancient movements of people eventually mingling with the land which hosts them, and which is as kind as mother earth. The castle was built in 1200 and has often been under dispute because of its reassuring inviolability. And suddenly an image: Santa Barbara. A 1600's painting exposed in the office of the mayor. And also a statue within a niche on the high altar of the baroque church with the same name. Moreover, also a stone arch in the center of the village is named after her. And so is the winery named after the place where it is located.
