A young firm, only founded in the 1940s, Barbeito is keen on innovation. They do not add caramel to their wines and do not deacidify them either, meaning the product is more natural. In addition, they are making drier styles that are more food-friendly. They are now part-owned by a Japanese company.

"Light tawny. Lots of richness and rancio and depth – clearly lots of reduction but it’s not uncomfortable to taste. Very pure with a fair amount of sweetness. At the limit of sweetness for a Sercial. Ricardo says it’s 'for my pleasure'. A purist’s dream." Jancis Robinson
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
