The name of the company in the local dialect literally means "from the barrels / of the barrels". The barrò are wooden barrels with a characteristic shape, with a capacity of 46.250 liters that were once used in Val d'Aosta for the transfer of hand-squeezed grapes to cellars directly in the vineyard; the barrò were then loaded onto a cart (gaillotta) and could equally be used for the transport of wine destined for sale; on the occasion of a village festival it was also customary to directly tap the wine from the barròs that were carried on the shoulders of men to show off their vigor. The word barrò is also an acronym of the first letters of the surnames BARmaz ROssan, former owners of the company as well as in-laws of the current owner, who in the 60s continued the cultivation of the family vineyards, Conze (conceived according to what LF Gatta wrote in 1838 about the best wine regions in Saint-Pierre) and Toule located in the area of Mount Torrette. In 1985 the Rossan Eugenia company was among the first to boast the designation of controlled origin Valle d'Aosta Torrette. Barrò belongs to the Valle d'Aosta wine tradition, evokes moments of celebration and lightheartedness and summarizes, as an acronym, the origins of the company. Since 1994 the company has been based at Château Feuillet (Saint-Pierre) which was bought with the surrounding funds in 1915 by the Berthod family; the owner of the Di Barrò winery, Rini Elvira Stefania, therefore inherited a part of this land from her family. From a photo from the beginning of the century it is possible to glimpse the vineyard cultivation of a part of the land around the castle. The other vineyards are located in Torrette, Condemine, Montagnine and Boné di Saint-Pierre, Borne de Veine and in Champcognein in Aymavilles.
