What makes our 2016 Grenache Blanc Sparkling so unique?
Grenache Blanc is a rare grape varietal in the U.S. and we don't know of another sparkling Grenache Blanc. Handpicked, whole cluster pressed, this 100% Grenache Blanc is cool fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and then re-fermented in the old-world méthode Champenoise style. Only 200 cases produced.
Our blanc de blanc méthode champenoise sparkling Grenache Blanc has exquisite balance and freshness. It is mineral driven and crisp with aromas of green apple, stone fruit and brioche. This is a lush and elegant representation of Lodi’s terroir and pairs well with everything!

All of our grapes are hand-picked and immediately pressed as whole clusters to capture the fresh, flavorful Grenache Blanc character. The grapes were harvested in the early morning to keep acidity at its highest, providing the vibrancy in the wine. The juice is then cool fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to highlight the pure fruit expressions.
