This lively pétillant wine tastes like tart cherry juice and pomegranate. Aromas of holiday baking spice, thyme and tarragon mingle with a whisper of tannin for a balanced fizz.

Collaborating is a way to take a stab at those complicated projects you’ve had on your mind, but just needed a parter in crime to actually bite them off. Joel Burt at Las Jaras is also a highly technical winemaker and the whole Las Jaras team is just fun to work with. After sharing a Carignan source in 2018, we were both excited to pick up a small amount of Valdiguié from Ricetti Vineyard. The 70-year-old vines don’t throw a large crop, so we decided to throw our hats in the ring together. Joel suggested sparkling, and I love a natural Lambrusco, so we quickly decided on a partial carbonic red pétillant. This was a golden opportunity to make something we would both enjoy making and drinking, and something that would challenge our skills. This second vintage, in 2019, was a way to sharpen the complicated techniques and timing we explored in 2018. 2019 is slightly more fruity than the 2018 as a result of these efforts (I love them both :-) It’s also nice to know that collaborators have your back: a huge shoutout to Joel and to my Assistant Winemaker, Tim, who brought this project to completion while I was giving birth!
