Napa & Sonoma
Family-owned Napa Valley winery, Mathew Bruno Wines, is excited to release its 2020 Los Carneros Blanc de Blancs Sparkling. It will be available for purchase in early December – just in time for New Year’s Eve! Toast to 2023 with this sparkling wine and your family and friends!
This sparkling wine is produced by the age-old tradition of Méthode Champenoise, during which secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle – a style from which only the finest sparkling wines are produced. It is then laid down to cellar “en tirage” for over 12 months. The prolonged aging allows the wine to interact with the yeast in the bottle further complexing the aromas and flavors. Effervescent aromas of green apple and tropical notes evolve into a crisp citrus taste, balanced acidity and fine bubbles. It finishes with a refreshingly pleasant splash of green pear and tropical flavors for all to enjoy.
1600 Soscol Ave, Napa, CA 94559
