Our Tula Vista vineyard is located just west of the Donum Estate on Ramal road, a few short miles from the Chateau. We purchased this 70 acre site in 2012.

Domaine CarnerosDomaine Carneros Cuvée de la Pompadour Brut Rosé

Domaine Carneros Brut Rosé is named for Madame de la Pompadour, Louis XV's great paramour. It was she who introduced sparkling wine to the court at Versailles and is famous for having said, "Champagne is the only wine that a woman can drink and remain beautiful." To capture the wine's special fruit character, some of the Pinot Noir juice is allowed several days contact with the grape skins to extract color and flavor. We also add a very small amount of Pinot Noir wine to further enhance the wine's profile.
