“The best, in the opinion of Arpad Haraszthy, whose judgment in this matter is entitled to much weight, is Zinfandel.”
- Published March 1869 in The Alta California in reference to Arpad Haraszthy’s favorite grape for sparkling wine.Friends, sparkling Zinfandel is not a “normal” wine for the modern world! However, we can say with confidence that in 2014 we really hit our stride, and I think knocked this one out of the park. It is simply the most delicious example we have made with the most classic sparkling wine soul. Pale copper and rose in color, this is light on its feet with the signature Bedrock Vineyard anise, fennel, blood orange and Campari notes; this has lots of verve and straight up scrumptiousness. It may come as a surprise to some, but Zinfandel has similar chemistries to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir when picked at sparkling wine sugar levels. We are very pleased to continue the legacy of Zinfandel being made into sparkling wine, keeping the spirit of California's booming 19th Century sparkling wine business alive and well.
