Barbera Passita

The history of Barbera in Castellinaldo d’Alba has ancient, noble and sacred roots. The little church of San Salvario (Sanctus Salvatius) dates back to the 15th century and it gives the name at the little road where our company is located. Already a place of worship and prayer, then the parish church was attended by religious and monks and was recognized by all as a point of interest for many villages in the left bank of the Tanaro. The wine that was used to celebrate the Mass was rigorously selected among the farmsteads of the Municipality.
