Léon Barbier arrived in Catalonia over a century ago.
The son of vineyard proprietors in the region of Avignon, Barbier applied his knowledge of the French winemaking tradition to the climate and soil of Catalonia.
This led to the production of magnificent, supreme-quality red, white and rosé wines. Year after year and harvest after harvest, successive generations of Barbiers have since maintained the same winemaking tradition
Freixenet (pronounced "fresh-eh-net"), best known for its "black bottle bubbly" Cordon Negro, is a family-owned company that grew from humble beginnings in rural Catalunya.
