From the vineyards of Los Carneros AVA in the Napa Valley comes Mathew Bruno’s first sparkling wine. Los Carneros is Napa’s coolest growing sub-region, due to the evening maritime influence of the San Pablo Bay crawling across the hills of shallow, clay soil. The resulting micro-climate is an ideal environment for growing premium sparkling wine grapes.
Blanc de Blancs translates as “white from whites,” a white wine produced entirely from white grapes. This style of sparkling wine is inspired by old world winemaking techniques of the Champagne region in France. Exclusively made from 100% Chardonnay grapes, this sparkling wine exhibits the classical styles and lively acidity which Blanc de Blancs have come to be known. 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. The wine is then laid down to cellar “en tirage” for over 12 months. The prolonged aging allows the wine to interact with the yeast in bottle further complexing the aromas and flavors.
