The name ’Barbarian’ was inspired by a piano piece called Allegro Barbaro written by the preeminent Hungarian composer Béla Bartók. We are striving to achieve a similar level of individuality and an unmistakable style in our wine. We are proud of what we have achieved and hope that the parallel we have drawn is not just wishful thinking: the Bartókian primordial power is recognizable in our Barbár too.
Barbár is not made in every year. It is produced in those vintages only when grapes of optimal ripeness and perfect health are picked and the vinification provides wines of impeccable quality. This is the list of the Barbár vintages so far: 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019.
In years like these it is always an inspiring journey to create the right blend.
