Producer Profile

Marco Barba

Marcobarba is the brainchild of Marco and Stefano, brought to life and nurtured by the "Barbaboyz" at Menti Winery in Gambellara. These dedicated individuals tend to small parcels of neglected vineyards, once owned by elderly widows. Their plots span the white sedimentary soils around Lonigo and the dark, volcanic terrain of Gambellara, while also contributing to Giovanni Menti Wines. Employing biodynamic practices, they cultivate grapes for Marco's production of approximately 40,000 bottles of Marcobarba wines annually, including fizzy white, still white, red, sparkling wine, and grappa.
