Schramsberg Brut Blanc de Blancs 2008 375mL
#SCH08BDB2 | 38mL
Since 1862, the Schram Family - and beginning in 1965, the Davies Family - have continually worked towards producing compelling, classic sparkling wines. This '09 Blanc de Blancs in 375ml bottles is a perfect example of their years of working to perfect the art of making a bubbly in the Champagne method. Using only Chardonnay grapes sourced from key vineyards throughout cool climate regions of Northern California, this new offering offers silky smooth bubbles with nuances of crisp, green apple and a little baked spice. - Kerrin Laz, Wine Director
Schramsberg Vineyards - Our Perspective
Schramsberg Vineyards is America’s House of Sparkling Wine. Producing world-class sparkling wine since 1965, Schramsberg Vineyards sources from over 95 diverse cool-climate vineyards from across 120 miles of coastline. This vineyard variety provides Schramsberg with the perfect balance of fruitful aromas and flavors, along with a delightful crisp acid backbone, all of which is required to produce these stunning sparkling wines. Crafted under the time-tested Méthode Champenoise process, with each bottle going through secondary fermentation within Schramsberg’s historic caves, each bottle of sparkling wine produced is a testament to the quality and dedication that has come to be expected by sparkling wine lovers.
Located on Diamond Mountain in the famous Napa Valley, the winery’s history dates back to its founding in 1862. Founded by Jacob Schram, Schramsberg was the second oldest bonded winery in Napa, and is home to the oldest hillside vineyards and oldest hand-dug wine caves in Napa. Restored by Jack & Jamie Davies in 1965, the winery has never looked back as it defined itself as a true American icon.
