Terroir:

This wine is made from 100% estate-grown fruit. Our vines are sheltered in the foothills of Carter’s Mountain in the Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA). 

Winemaker's Notes:

This Brut sparkling wine is made via Méthode Champenoise with our estate grown Chardonnay vineyards. Hand picking by night and gently pressing ensures that this wine retains all of its best qualities. After a combination 88% stainless steel and 12% neutral French oak barrel aging, the wine gains complexity by aging on the lees in the bottle for a minimum of 40 months.  At disgorging, a low dosage is added to balance acidity and improve mouth-feel.
