Tasting Notes

An exciting release from Channing Daughters. This is a sparkling wine made in a process known as "Méthode Ancestrale" with a slightly cloudy nature and leesy characteristics. Citrus, stone fruits, brioche, and lees flavors mingle together in the glass, making this well-textured wine versatile to pair with anything from appetizers to entrées.

Staff Pick Notes

Being new to the wonderful world of Pétillant Naturel wines can be a daunting experience!

These three grapes come together to make a beautifully balanced light bodied sparkling wine.

Pinot Grigio

Pinot Grigio is an Italian synonym for the French Pinot Gris variety, but many more people have had Pinot Grigio than a Pinot Gris. At its most basic level, the grape produces varietals that are smooth and easy to drink, and perfect with a huge range of dishes that just beg to be paired with a fresh white wine. There is an entire spectrum of Pinot Gris/Grigio, however, the best of them being...
