Happy Sparkling Wines Week!

Sparkling Wines Week

Welcome to Sparkling Wines Week, where we raise our glasses and celebrate the effervescence that entertains our taste buds and adds a touch of celebration to any occasion. Dive into the world of sparkling wines with two of our delightful offerings: 2021 Spumante and 2022 Rosé Spumante. Join us as we explore their unique profiles, tasting notes, food pairings, and intriguing production and vineyard details.

🍾 2021 Spumante: A Zesty Delight 🌿

Let's begin our journey with our 2021 Spumante, a sparkling wine that tantalizes the taste buds with its refreshing and balanced nature. With notes of green apple, lime, and fresh bread, this bubbly treat takes you on a sensory journey. Imagine yourself savoring lemon-lime meringue and tropical sherbet, as the flavors mingle and dance across your palate. The wine finishes bright and clean, leaving you with a sense of satisfaction.

The grapes for this delightful wine were harvested in late August of 2020 from BOTTAIA’s Estate Pecorino vineyard. Produced using the Charmat method with a secondary fermentation at the renowned Weibel winery, our 2021 Spumante captures the essence of the Pecorino grape and transforms it into a lively and delightful sparkling wine.

Pair alongside dishes featuring goat cheese, enhancing the creamy and tangy flavors or enjoy this with anything from the raw bar, including oysters and sushi. The crisp and refreshing nature of the wine complements the briny and delicate seafood flavors, elevating your dining experience.


🍷 2022 Rosé Spumante: A Burst of Fruity Elegance 🌹

Now, let's shift our attention to our 2022 Rosé Spumante, a captivating blend that dances on your palate with its vibrant flavors. This wine offers hints of wet stone minerality and strawberry creme, creating a fascinating contrast of earthiness and fruitiness. The bright acidity is well-balanced, leading to a short, tart finish that leaves you craving more.

Behind the scenes, the base wine is carefully fermented on-site before being sent to the bottling facility for the sparkling process. This meticulous craftsmanship ensures that each sip delivers a symphony of flavors and effervescence.

When pairing, this wine shines alongside brie and berries, offering a delightful combination of creamy and fruity flavors. For those looking to indulge in a light bite, the 2022 Rosé Spumante is an excellent match for an app trio of salted chips, Marcona almonds, and olives. The wine's dynamic character complements the diverse flavors, making every bite a celebration.


✨ Cheers to Sparkling Wines Week! ✨

As we wrap up our journey through the intricacies of our 2021 Spumante and 2022 Rosé Spumante, we invite you to raise your glass and celebrate the joy that sparkling wines bring. These two offerings, with their unique profiles, distinct tasting notes, and carefully curated production processes, are sure to add sparkle to any occasion.
