A sparkling soirée for our wine club members
Join us for the release of our 2016 Cuvée Brut Nature! Crafting a Sparkling Wine in-house is a huge accomplishment – we are one of a handful of wineries that performs each labor-intensive step ourselves. This release party will be a celebration of all of the hard work and passion that goes into creating these special bottles!
The Bubbles In 2016 we picked a combination of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for this Cuvée. It was tirage aged for two years before being disgorged and bottled on May 21st, 2019. "Brut Nature" refers to the fact that we added zero sugar with the dosage - we believe that keeping the expression pure was the best was to create a lively and complex iteration of our coastal vineyard site.
The Soirée Your evening will include live music, sparkling wine and an assortment of savory and sweet bites. Our Winemaker and Chef have collaborated to create some fantastic and creative pairings, and we have a few surprises to delight you with. Expect to see demonstrations of the sparkling winemaking steps and chat with Sparkling Winemaker Molly Bohlman about the process. Reserve your tickets now – this is an event you won’t want to miss!
