Fermentation/Winemaking - This sparkling wine is made as a Pétillant-Naturel (or Pet-nat), which is to say it’s made in the “methode ancestrale” style. We pressed whole clusters into stainless steel and began fermentation. Then we chilled the wine down to stop fermentation and bottled the juice. As it warmed up, fermentation began again in bottle. Wine was not disgorged. Aged in bottle.

Gamay

The Gamay grape is thought to have appeared first in the village of the Gamay, south of Beaune, in the 1360s. The grape brought relief to the village growers following the decline of the Black Death. In contrast to the Pinot noir variety, Gamay ripened two weeks earlier and was less difficult to cultivate. It also produced a strong, fruitier wine in a much larger abundance. Gamay-based wines are typically light bodied and fruity. Wines meant to be drunk after some modest aging tend to have more body and are produced by whole-berry maceration. The latter are produced mostly in the designated 'Cru Beaujolais' areas where the wines typically have the flavor of sour cherries, black pepper, and dried berry, as well as fresh-cut stone and chalk. Gamay is now grown throughout the world and grows beautifully in cooler regions like the Sta. Rita Hills in California.
