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).

Vintage Notes:

After a cold winter with some bud loss, a hot and dry summer and great weather conditions throughout harvest led to excellent flavor and concentration.

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Blanc de Noir, meaning "white from black",  made from 100% Pinot Noir, is a beautiful representation of how this grape can be transformed to create a world class sparkling wine. Made via Méthode Champenoise, the grapes are picked at night and gently pressed to create a white juice base for this sparkling wine. After aging in 67% stainless steel and 33% neutral French oak, the wine gains complexity by aging on the lees in the bottle for 36 months.  At disgorging, a reserve dosage is added to balance acidity and improve mouth-feel.
