Vineyard The more traditional of the Valdiguié (Napa Gamay) sites we work with in Napa, tucked back from Highway 29, just south of the city of Calistoga. Loamy, deep soils allow this 60+ year old bush trained vineyard to be both organic and dryfarmed.
Soil Alluvial silt topsoil, gravel subsoil.
Vinification Grapes were whole cluster pressed using the same slow steady cycle as for our traditional method sparkling wines. A small amount of grapes were macerated separately and added pre-fermentation to color the wine. The wine was then fermented a small stainless steel tank. Towards the end of the fermentation the wine was bottled, stored, and then riddled, and disgorge. There has been no yeast or sugar added — pure, fermented, grape juice.

Notes "The palest of pinks in the glass, with a slight haze. On the nose, rose, watermelon, and fennel. An extremely tight mousse carries a savory, chalky finish. If you doubt the seriousness of PetNats, try this!" - Michael Cruse
