Owner and winemaker Robert Gheradi was born with wine in his blood, spending his Summers growing up picking grapes in the Swan Valley and Margaret River with his extended Italian family to make into wine at his Nonna’s house. Whilst completing his degree in viticulture and winemaking, Robert worked for the esteemed Moss Wood winery, and later at Cullen Wines before spending time with leading Barolo producers before returning to Margaret River to establish Mr Barval (combining Margaret River, Barolo and Valtellina) in 2015.
The centuries-old winemaking traditions of Barolo influenced the ancient winemaking techniques utilised within Mr Barval's production. The wines are fermented with only natural yeasts and basket-pressed grapes to provide the most sensitive juice extraction to make handcrafted wines of balance, elegance and purity. The fruit comes from ultra-high quality grapes throughout Margaret River.
The Mr Barval range includes Chardonnay, Rose and Cabernet Merlot. There’s also an early harvest style Nebbiolo called ‘Nebbia’ and Rhone-inspired white, ‘Mistral’ made from Viognier and Marsanne. Wines can be purchased online or at various stockists throughout WA.
