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 at night and gentle pressing ensures that this wine retains all of its best qualities. After a combination of 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 36 months. At disgorging, a low dosage is added to balance acidity and improve mouth-feel.
