Boujee Sparkling Blanc de Blanc and Rosé
This is a special pair of wines. We drink sparkling every day, and we wanted to make something unique for ourselves and our favorite wine club members.
It was even more popular than we could have anticipated, and we’ve ramped up production to try to meet demand. Still with the same exacting methods to produce an absolutely incredible bottle of bubbles, worthy of the name Boujee.
We’re using a range of grapes to create complex and layered sparklings that are unlike anything else found in California. Boujee Blancs de Blanc is a blend of chardonnay, pinot blanc, and viognier – with the viognier lending a very distinctive fruit to this bright and clean wine. Boujee Rosé draws in the Blancs de Blanc blend and adds syrah – a substitute for the more common pinot noir component, which adds an extra layer of richness.
These wines are unique in their lack of added sugar at dosage, resulting in a Brut Natural style wine distinct from the more common California Brut wines (which may have up to three teaspoons of sugar added). Not only does this make for a brighter, less sweet wine, but the low viscosity creates tiny, energized bubbles – perfect for enjoying on a special occasion.
As Jason puts it, “We created a sparkling because I gravitate towards the drier, crisper style of French Champagne. While there’s certainly nothing wrong with the sweeter Californian style, I wanted a wine that really fit my palate. I know our source material is excellent, and I thought we had an opportunity here to do something truly original – and something I’d enjoy drinking every day myself.”
We sit on the edge of the Russian River, perfect terroir for sparkling wines. All the grapes used in the wines come from our property. They’re hand riddled, using antique racks from Champagne, ten cases at a time. These wines are unfined and labeled Vegan Friendly.
