Barbaterre: Winery and Agritourism, a perfect combination of genuine cuisine with organic wines produced with our local grapes, the best expressions of our culinary and wine-making tradition from Reggio Emilia (Emilia Romagna region).
Barbaterre is located in Quattro Castella, in the province of Reggio Emilia, on the ridge of the first hills, with a wonderful view, as far as the eye could see, on the Apennine mountains. These territories are the set of castles and places of worship which were at the centre of important Italian history episodes: not far away from Barbaterre there is the Church of the Madonna della Battaglia, the small sanctuary built in memory of the victory of Matilde di Canossa’s army over that of the Germanic emperor Henry IV, and castles such as Bianello Castle, Canossa Castle and Rossena Castle.
Typical dishes of the Reggio Emilia tradition, result of the wise and careful use of our organic products, are recommended in our menu. Wine, vinegar and condiments, oil, wheat flour and vegetables are all produced in our farmhouse. Among the specialties of our menu the “Erbazzone”, a typical savory chard pie from Reggio Emilia, the “Gnocco Fritto”, a soft fried dumpling with salami, and then “Tortelli”, “guanciale”, an Italian cured meat product prepared from pork jowl or cheeks, and roast pork, to then conclude with exquisite home made dessert.
From the vineyard to the cellar we take care of our wines which represent the excellence of the territory: Lambrusco and Marzemino, produced with re-fermentation in the bottle with ancestral method; then our sparkling Sauvignon and our Pinot Noir, which have found excellent nourishment in the clayey and calanchive soils and the hilly microclimate, combinations that allow to obtain an excellent classic method, the Blanc de Noirs which with over 60 months on the lees becomes our “Marandalè”. And then our still wines from Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Cabernet grapes, fresh or aged in oak barrels. All our wines can be appreciated for lunch or dinner or with tastings that we offer to groups during the week.
