 Join us in celebrating the 20th anniversary of Amphora Winery with our first sparkling wine, specially produced for the occasion!

Our 2012 Blanc de Blancs was crafted in the traditional méthode champenoise from 100% Chardonnay of Peters Vineyard, in the coolest part of Russian River Valley. The grapes were harvested on September 13th, whole-cluster pressed for the cleanest juice, and fermented in stainless steel using the classic Prise de Mousse yeast strain. After fermenting to dryness,  went into bottle for the crucial re-fermentation and aging en tirage. After two and a half years on the yeast , it was disgorged, and finished in the brut style.

This bubbly is deliciously complex and crisp. Aromas of ripe pear, Gravenstein apple, and lemon zest invite you to take a sip. Concentrated flavors of stone fruit, lime, and pear invite you to take another sip, and the bubbles dance on your palate as the wine finishes with a hint of minerality and a whisper of brioche. The balanced structure is fresh and lively. Pair with fresh oysters, smoked salmon, a fresh fruit tart—or simply raise a glass to toast a special occasion! .

Only 120 cases were produced, and we’re sharing this very limited release with our Wine Club family first! Wine club discounts apply until December 31st!
