Barraco

About us

Nino Barraco’s inspiration to make craft wines comes from his passion of the local vines and land. The estate began producing wine in 2004 as a family endeavour and Nino has since continued growing his own grapes and leading the winemaking process. The result is a unique high quality wine, as each grape varietal’s identity comes from the land where it was cultivated with various microclimates throughout Marsala and rich soils, the winemakers sense of the land & traditional natural winemaking practices allow for an enjoyable experience with each sip.

Our winery

The Barraco’ traditional & artisanal mark is guaranteed by the winemakers boutique size winery which allows for all viticulture and enology practices to be done by the producer himself. He continues to research and experiment in order to improve the sense of the terroir in his products, thus creating a unique experience for his consumers. Grape bunches are hand harvested, destemmed and soft pressed in a hydraulic-manual vertical basket press to follow maceration. Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations occur spontaneously, thanks to native indigenous yeast preset on the grape skins at the time of harvest. Wines are bottled without microfiltration and/or clarification, providing a slightly cloudy appearance. Barraco currently producer 45.000 bottles of wine per year from five different grape varietals.
