Cittavecchia was founded in 1999 in this wine-producing village between Trieste and the Slovenian border. Former home brewer Michele Barro was compelled by his passion for good beer to leave his job as designer and take up brewing full time. Now his lagers and ales are sold in the region’s best restaurants and bars.
