The Story Behind the Bubbles – Tutto e inziato con l’amore
The Romano family has been in the wine and spirits business for nearly 100 years. And, as with all great stories, the story of Bariano starts with a love story …
Buddy and Florence Romano raised seven children while building the second generation of a Chicago-based wines and spirits distribution company. Their lives were hectic but when they did take a moment, it was with a glass of Prosecco.
True to our Italian roots…
For more than 100 years, the Romano family was at the heart of the hospitality business in Chicago. Meanwhile, the di Gasparetto family was harvesting grapes in the Italian hills north of Venice. When the two families met many years ago, they made a connection that transcended geography and generations.
Together, these families have forged a bond and built a business, owned and operated by a third-generation daughter of the wine and spirits industry. Today’s vintners have built a new Prosecco, Bariano, to the market.
Bariano, a light, refreshing Prosecco from northern Italy. Created with the cooperation of the two families, it brings a celebratory flavor to the table. After working in the wines and spirits industry for a century, the two families are now entering a new era. They are now committed to the next generation of the wine business bringing new experiences to an old tradition. Bariano is about family but also about fun and friendship. We encourage everyone to try this Prosecco and share it with those they love. Bariano is the first of many delicious wines that will be at the heart of this new collaboration.
About the Vineyard
Rive della Chiesa sits 250 meters altitude above the Mediterranean in the red soil typical of the Montello hills. As you may know, the name of the Prosecco grape was changed to Glera in 2009 to allow Prosecco to be used exclusively for the geographic designation of origin (DOC). The median age of the Glera vines is 18 years.
All grapes for Bariano are harvested in late September, our last harvest having a particularly strong growing season with the perfect amount of sun and dryness, giving our Prosecco its light, pleasant taste and aroma.
