Three different styles are produced: a Chardonnay-based sparkler from our Carneros vineyard and a light sparkling rosé made from our popular Gamay Rouge. The third is our slightly sweet Moscato made in the frizzante style.
Our 2010 Cuvée Rouge is “more than just a pretty face,” says winery president Tom Davies. “It’s a bottle of bubbly that tastes as good as it looks!” Recently dubbed “CR,” this sparkler is made from the same grape, Valdiguiue (or Napa Gamay), as our very popular Gamay Rouge and is produced in the typical rosé style where free run and lightly pressed juice remains in contact with its grape skins.
The Italians like sparkling wines, but they prefer them lightly so "Frizzante" they say. Our Moscato is lighter-bodied, slightly carbonated, lower in alcohol and with just a little sweetness. We like them too!
