Garbara is Producing Sparkling Wines From a Single-Vineyard Micro Terroir

Prosecco sparkling wine is usually consumed during casual affairs, and is not known for the quality of its grapes. Things are changing, however, in northern Italy, where the Garbara vineyard plans to dramatically heighten the quality of Prosecco by producing a single-vineyard wine. The grapes used to make Garbara Cartizze are from the coveted subzone within the Valdobbiadene region known as Cartizze.

Cartizze is one small slope that is no larger than 74 acres. The steeper slope of Cartizze and the densely planted vines produces a sparkling wine with a smaller, more refined effervescent bubble and a crisp taste. Prosecco enthusiasts know that the smaller the bubble, the finer the sparkling wine. 

There are very special differences between Garbara Cartizze and other Prosecco. The only grapes permitted to make this wine are picked from the single Cartizze Vineyard -- no others are permitted -- and only a small-scale production is used.
