(video above)  The first bottle of Petite Pearl was livelier than expected!

We disgorged three batches of Pét-Nat today— La Crescent, Petite Pearl, and our Black Sparrow blend. The two whites were well-behaved, but the rosé, well, watch out! After this one in the video, we worked out a disgorging technique that kept more of the wine in each bottle ;).

When we popped the caps, we discovered three delightfully different sparklers. . Read More »

This wine won Best-in-Show Red Wine at the 2015 International Cold Climate Wine Competition.

Chris is very busy in the winery. He’s watching and tasting all the wines like a first-time parent. After they’ve spent many weeks . Read More »
