About Babos Winery

The family

The concept of tradition gets its true value through the generations that transmit love, passion and desire to preserve family treasures. In a sea of manufacturers, just a way of transmitting the tradition from generation to generation is the motive that makes us different. The story of the Giacometti-Moscarda family began with grandmother Livia and grandfather Claudio. Their foundations with their work and ideas were reinforced by Guglielmo and Lorella who passed love for nature, tradition and family business to sons Matteo and Luca. They transformed a love for wine growing into a brand that spreads its roots into the future. 

Knowledge of modern technology of grapes, the specific varieties and maintenance of wine preparations Matteo met through schooling in Udine, where he graduated in oenology. Their business is achieved through constant work, divided tasks and constant education. While Matteo devotes his time to monitoring wine properties, Luca works on marketing and presenting many products from their supply.

The brand Babos

The meaning of every brand is hidden in its core roots. Babos finds its foothold in our location - the City of Vodnjan. In its meaning, a long tradition and the history of our ancestral hometown are intertwined. 'Babos' is the name of an ancient part of Vodnjan where our winery is situated. In the town's history, it is well known that not every street had its name, so the inhabitants divided the city into regions.

The winery

In Babos Winery, innovation technology is masterly integrated with the local tradition. Oak wine barrels from Croatia and France, made with the same material used fifty years ago, together with new refined installations, for an always-leading winery in the oenological culture of Vodnjan.

Passion, hard work and shared values guided the Giacometti-Moscarda family in every historical change and they keep on accompanying them through their successes.
