Great grandfather Vittore
In the village, people called him Garbara for his nature that was as harsh and brusque as the land he cultivated.
He inherited this land in S. Stefano di Valdobbiadene and continued working it according to the family tradition.
Known as Brosio, born in 1926, he continued cultivating the vineyard and selling the grapes produced in the Cartizze sub-area.
The owner, Mirco
He renamed the winery Garbara, and began vinifying grapes for the production of sparkling wines in 2007.
5 layers over time.
5 generations of the Grotto family bound to the land of Prosecco that goes back more than 100 years.
Ties that bind the grapes born in
the architecture of the bunch. Ties that bind the bunches that ripen among the vine’s levels. Ties that bind the vines that grow next
to each other in rows and that give life to the vineyard. Ties that bind the threads of bubbles that rise to create a superior sparkling wine.
For these ties, man binds himself to his land, and a wine producer binds himself to his vineyard. There, the earth welcomes the work of the men who preserve the Garbara identity generation after generation. Since 1865, it gives a name and origin to a historical bond. Here, farming knowledge combines with environmental factors to reveal its originality. It creates that sense of place that can only be perceived in the glass.
in the vintage
It’s not just about making wine.
It’s about a land, the people who work it, a story that tells it. And there is a tie that binds the fixed part, the vineyard, with the variable part, the vintage.
In the vineyard, there are the vines to be cultivated and the grapes to be harvested. In the vintage, there are climatic phenomena to deal with and wine producing choices to make. And
in the winery, there is ability as a winemaker to reconcile the opposites of the land to create a balance in the glass. Between day and night, hot and cold, sugars and acids. The balance of these pairs will determine the vintage of the vineyard on the land that welcomes it.
Only for the few
Dry, sharp, straightforward.
We like the principle of treating the plant very little or not at all. We want our wine to express the vine, not the label.
We like combining the curiosity of experimentation with the certainty of tradition. We like measuring ourselves against ourselves, not only against nature, to see what happens. Like in 2012, when Garbara was the first company to produce the Cartizze with the traditional method.
We like the idea of creating recognisable wines because they break the mould. We don’t make them to please the market, but for those who want to discover the pleasure of the land. Because we believe that our task is to assist the vineyard throughout the vintage. We let the vineyard be what it wants to be every time, every year. We let the vintage express its origin—the vineyard—through the wine.
