Celebrating over 180 years of family winemaking, we proudly present our blanc méthode champenoise. This sparkling Chardonnay is crafted from grapes grown in Russian River Valley, a region renowned for spectacular sparkling wine.

Elegant and fresh on the palate, crisp and lively notes of green apple, lime zest and lemon custard with hints of candied ginger and sugar cookie on the finish.

MÉTHODE

In Méthode Champenoise, the secondary fermentation that provides the bubbles is done in the individual bottle, and the bottles are then turned manually for at least a year to allow the yeast to infuse into the wine evenly. It is more timely and costly, but ultimately it produces the tightest bubbles and the cleanest flavors and textures a sparkling can have.

The Russian River is unique amongst California AVAs in that it has warm days that are contrasted with cool, fog-drenched evenings. The warm days allow for excellent ripening while the cool nights help to preserve natural acidity while extending the growing season. A longer season encourages the grape to develop more complexity and structure in its juice. All these factors combined give Russian River Chardonnay status as some of the best and most highly sought after in the world.
