The History: Arbe Garbe (pron. Arbay Garbay), literally "bad weeds", is what they call the cover crops on the Friulian Colli Orientali ("eastern hills"). It's the mid-nineties, same scenery; two philosophy students are paying for tuition by picking grapes in the Jermann vineyards. Long hours of hard work and dream-sharing, they find one too many ideas in common. Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Kerouac, whispering incessantly in the back of their minds, they lift their deep roots and go. He picks up his guitar and she takes nothing but a flower in her hair and love in her eyes, and they come to California. 

Anthony Galloni 93 Points: 'Anthony Galloni 93 Points: “Arbe Garbe’s 2015 Benandants Malvasia Bianca Catie’s Corner Vineyard is a real head-turner. Deeply varietal to the core, the 2015 offers tons of Malvasia exoticness and perfume, with beams of supporting acidity that give the wine its freshness and verve. Lemon confit, jasmine and mint are all given an extra kick of brightness on the intensely mineral finish.”
