"There's large chunks of the world that unfortunately can't afford high end wines. I keep seeing the same people from the same wineries everywhere I go." [9:00]

This week on In the Drink, Joe Campanale is joined by winemaker Niccolo Barberani. The Barberani family collect and process their grapes grown alongside the Corbara Lake from more than fifty years. Since 1961,Vittorio Barberani cultivated the vine and obtained a very good wine for his bars in the district of Orvieto. He produced primarily Orvieto Classico, the highest local expression of the Trebbiano Procanico and Grechetto grapes. Vittorio, who founded the Wine House with a clear idea of producing very drinkable wines, began immediately to distribute its wines to nearby restaurants. In the 70s, Luigi and Giovanna Barberani started running the business, focusing on excellence and boutique wines and adding a touch of modernity and internationalization to their production that is constantly evolving. Nowadays Niccolo’ and Bernardo are giving a concrete and dynamic contribution to the estate, with that passion and love inherited from their parents.

"Biodiversity in the vineyard is very important. If you do that - you don't need [...] to use chemicals. Keeping your ecosystem lively is really [the advice] my grandfather left to me." [12:00]
