Anderson Valley, Mendocino, California

One of my favourite California sparkling wines that's consistently great year after year. The price of this zesty and refreshing bubbly is incredibly reasonable, especially for the quality. Terrific toasty aromas with full-bodied weight and lift on the finish. Keep some in stock throughout the holidays.
