    With the purchase of the first vineyards in 1965, Don Humberto Barberis founds the fulfillment of an old familiar dream: to construct a warehouse able to make wines of high quality. The experience obtained during long years spent to the taken care of culture and of their grapevines impels, it to the acquisition, in 1989, of the warehouse of Vistalba giving therefore a very important step for the fine wine elaboration. During the years that followed, the produced wine was sold to other warehouses, that recognized the virtues and qualities of the same. These recognitions developed the idea to participate in different international contests, obtaining important prizes. Today, with the active participation of the children of Don Humberto: Adrķan, Walter, Liliana and Mauritius, the familiar tradition by the wine is acquiring a new impulse, make clear in the modernization of the warehouse and the wine commercialization with own mark in the national and international market.

    Familia Barberis is made from select grapes grown in our vineyards at the foot of the Andes Mountains.  This Malbec has a deep purple color that is full of red highlights.  Its aroma of cherry, white pepper anise and other ripened red fruits is also complemented by a touch of chocolate and vanilla that is the result of a delicate barrel aging process.  On the plate, this wine offers round and sweet tannins, as well as an enjoyable finish that highlights its time spent in French and American Oak barrels.  This solid example of Argentinean Malbec is an ideal companion for grilled red meats and pastas in a red sauce.
