Palate

Its vibrant flavors are balanced by fine acidity and a rich, lingering finish.

Growing Conditions

Each harvest, the Brut Prestige blend is comprised of the best grapes selected from up to 50 grower locations throughout the Napa appellation.

Harvest

The grapes are hand-harvested during the crisp morning hours to ensure they arrive at the winery in pristine condition.

Winemaking

Fermentation is conducted at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and fruit intensity. A few select lots are aged in French oak barrels to add depth, complexity, and spiciness. The finished blend is bottled for second fermentation, with an average of 18 months’ yeast ageing to add complexity, subtle dough flavors, and layers of creaminess. The wine is disgorged in brut style and a dosage is added back to balance the wines acidity, ageing another 3 months to fully marry the dosage and base wines for our elegant house style.

Food Pairing

Pair this versatile and balanced sparkling wine with hors d’oeuvres such as crab cakes or smoked salmon, fresh green salads, or grilled chicken and vegetables.
