In local dialect, the word “Garbèl” expresses a satisfying sensation of freshness and pleasant lightness. Recognizable for its dry finish, youthful nose and pleasing drinkability, Garbèl is suitable as an aperitif or an accompaniment to delicately-flavoured dishes. To indicate the origin of the grapes from vineyards on the plain, the label is applied horizontally.
In 1920, Abel, the grandfather of the current owners, purchased a natural amphitheatre vineyard from Count Balbi Valier. This beautiful site with fantastic potential was the ideal place to start out afresh, with the help of his son Adriano. Abel had the inspired intuition of separating this vineyard from the others, due to its different characteristics. So it was that he presented in August 1933, at the 1st Mostra Mercato dei Vini Tipici d’Italia in Siena, his Riva Giardino Asciutto, the first real vineyard selection from Valdobbiadene. Carrying on the family tradition, Adriano Adami continued in his father’s footsteps, making a name for the winery’s quality Prosecco on the local market. The 1980s saw the arrival of the third generation, with the newly qualified oenologists Armando and Franco Adami, combining family traditions with specialization and technology. With a modern winemaking and sparkling wine production facility, the brand moved onto new markets and acquired a solid reputation. Adami now produces about 750,000 bottles with grapes from 50 hectares of vineyards, 12 of their own land, the rest farmed by other small growers with time-honored links to the winery, and sharing its commitment to quality.
