Parentage of the grape: indigenous to Piedmont, Italy
History of the grape: Barbera is a native to the Piedmont, where it has been growing for centuries, and is now the fourth most planted grape in all of Italy. 7th century Lombard historian, Paul the Deacon, wrote that the Lombard troops defeated the Franks at the Battle of Refrancore after getting them schnoggered on the local wine, which was likely Barbera. The jugs had been scattered all over the field and the Franks willingly drank from them, and lost their coordination. 13th century documents from the Casale Monferrato have details of leasing agreements for vineyards planted with “de bons vitibus barbexinis,” which is Barbera.
