Why Sparkling

Sparkling wine is perfect as a welcome beverage and an ideal start to any tasting. It adds variety to your Wine Club shipments, and is fun for Wine Club member pick-up parties, private events and seasonal gatherings hosted at your winery. Its versatility in food pairings makes it a chef’s favorite.

CUSTOM SPARKLING WINE SERVICES

How It Works

We offer two ways to allow you to use your wine or grapes and craft a sparkling specific to your winery protocols. Let us introduce you to our Base to Bottle and Grapes to Bottle custom programs.

Our Winemaking team has 100+ years of combined experience crafting award-winning sparkling wines. We follow your winemaking protocols to craft a blend that is perfect for your desired style. Our winemaking package includes customized blending and dosage, QC and in-house lab services.

Our dedicated operations teams, working from our state-of-the-art facilities, ensure the highest quality and attention to detail, from bottling to final delivery. We can use your packaging supplies or ours, except for your labels – those you will provide.
Bring us your wine or your grapes, and your labels, and we can handle the rest.

Base to Bottle

If you want to use your own wine to craft the perfect sparkling, we can do that too! You provide the base wine and we develop a sparkling wine using your desired winemaking protocols. We tirage bottle and age to your preferences. Next, you select a disgorging date and we handle bottling and packaging, and get it ready for you to pick up. Our Winemaking and Business Development teams will support you throughout the entire process.

Grape to Bottle

If your program is 500 cases or more, you can bring us your grapes. We will crush them for you at our Alexander Valley facility, then handle fermentation, blend on-site, tirage, riddling, disgorging and finishing for you. Then we bottle and label and get it ready for you to pick up.
