Q4 2022 Meet the Maker: Acetaia Del Cristo

MEET THE MAKER

MODENA, ITALY

Acetaia Del Cristo

Founded in 1979, De Medici imported Badia a Coltibuono, the first Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil marketed nationally in the U.S.A.

THE BARBIERI FAMILY HAS REMAINED PASSIONATELY DEDICATED TO THE VALUES AND TRADITIONS THAT HAVE BEEN HANDED DOWN THROUGH GENERATIONS.

Production of their Tradizionale DOP de Modena starts with Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes grown organically on their farm. Decades ago Eugenio Barbieri and Loris Bellei combined their inheritances, batteries of centuryold casks, as well as their experience.

They started collecting more of both. Now the fourth generation of the family oversees the vineyard and acetaia that now counts 2000 casks, barrels and ancient vats.
