Some of their best vineyards are within the latter appellation, the rest lying in the rolling hills below the imposing Monte Cetona mountain. Barbanera was founded in 1938 by Altero Barbanera and his wife Maria, and the EGT winery in 1978 by their grandsons Marco and Paolo Barbanera. Today it is a dynamic modern winery with state-of-the-art bottling technology which exports all over the world. A continuing programme of investment in equipment, space and above all - people - is the secret behind the impressive improvement in quality, value-for-money and consequent rapid growth in the last few years. It is led by Marco Barbanera.
