Sparkling Brut

Willamette Valley, Oregon

The Region

Oregon’s largest AVA, the valley follows the Willamette River, and is bordered by mountains to the east and west. The cool maritime climate can be unpredictable, keeping growers on their toes, while a wide diversity of soils provides a broad palette of expression for the fruit grown here.

The cool climate of Oregon's Willamette Valley comes to life in this sparkling wine with marine notes, bright acidity and white peach and brioche on the palate. Its liveliness pairs with good conversation and celebration.
