These are some of the first vineyards planted for vinifera in the region. Ricks in particular is well suited to bubbly wines, as the way the trellis is laid out, it allows us to maximize each plant's canopy and to carry extra canes to fill out the fruiting zones. The Chardonnay that makes this wine is a Colmar clone. No matter how hot the season gets, we will always have the acidity and structure a bubbly wine needs.
This wine gained its bubbles via the Charmat method. This has become our preferred technique for bubbly in how the pace of production constantly allows us to refine our technique.
Chardonnay is the quintessential bubbly variety. It allows the process of bubbly wines to be expressed while in addition to being the vinifera variety that may grow the best in our region. In the coldest winters where we lose Gewürztraminer and even some Riesling, Chardonnay rarely seems even bothered by the cold.
Made with 100% Chardonnay.

I am not really a bubbly fan, but I must admit this one the best, or at least one of the best I have ever tasted. My girlfriend LOVES Champagne and agreed 100%. Great job. We will be ordering more!
