Under the Wire is a project grown from a mutual friendship and love for wines with bubbles. Our simple, yet unique premise is to make California sparkling wines based on an individual vineyard in an individual year. Inspired in part by the grower Champagne movement we aim to prove that California can produce unique, delicious and terroir-driven sparkling wine.

The first two wines from Under the Wire are a Chardonnay from the 2011 vintage from Brosseau Vineyard and Zinfandel Rose’ from our beloved Bedrock Vineyard in Sonoma Valley. We are beyond excited to be releasing our first efforts and equally pleased with the wines to be released in the future from Hirsch and Alder Springs Vineyards.


We hope these wines capture your imagination!
