Overview

“When I started farming Wiley Vineyard, I reflected on the fact that it is graced with exceptional sparkling wine terroir and was inspired by some favorite grower Champagnes to produce my own grower Blanc de Noirs. I have been fascinated by the vintage signature this wine exhibits while consistently delivering pure fruit with savory notes. As with all Bravium wines, I employ a natural approach to viticulture and vinification, hand-harvesting select blocks at night, gently whole cluster pressing, and fermenting with wild yeast in used French and Hungarian oak barrels. The resulting wine benefits from these traditional, light-handed practices.” — Winegrower Derek Rohlffs

This single vineyard Brut Nature sparkling wine, with less than 3 g/L residual sugar, was bottled unfiltered. It is a wine that transparently speaks of a special place and a specific vintage.
