This sparkling wine was made with Chardonnay and Arbois grapes grown on soils of flint, clay and stone in France's Loire Valley. The wine is made using the Traditional Champagne Method, and is rested "sur lattes" (on its side) for 2-3 years. This extended maturation in-bottle allows aromas and complexity to develop. Only 500 cases were produced of this wine for the US market.
This wine was created in collaboration with Boston Magazine to support The Greater Boston Food Bank during the 2018 holiday season. $1 from every bottle sold will be given to GBFB to support the great work they are doing in supporting the local Boston and Eastern Massachusetts community. This $1 per bottle will provide three healthy meals to those in need. Read more about GBFB below.
