Rosato Pétillant Naturel

Created from 100% Merlot. Only 130 cases produced. Our first sparkling wines are part of an ancient tradition made in a process known as “Methode Ancestrale” and the wines are often referred to as Pétillant Naturel or Pet-Nats. we hand harvest the grapes, whole-cluster press them and settle the juice. We started wild/ambient fermentations in small stainless steel tanks and watched the ferments very carefully until they were at their tail-end. Then we coarsely filtered the wine and bottled it (with no sulfur dioxide or stabilization) in sparkling wine bottles closed with a crown cap to contain the carbon dioxide being given off by the continuing fermentation in bottle, trapping the gas in solution and making the wine sparkling. While these really are just so good on their own, they are also fantastic with a great variety of food. With the alcohol being just under 10% these also make fine companions at the brunch and lunch tables, no need to wait till the sun sets to crack these bottles. And don’t forget the bottle opener…no need for a corkscrew with the crown cap closure! We really have had so much fun making and drinking these Pet-Nats, so get what you can while they last and have as much fun as we are.
