All That Sparkles…

All That Sparkles…

"Back here at home, the sparkling wines coming out of California and Oregon are one more reason to celebrate...The very best, in my opinion, come from Schramsberg Vineyards in Napa Valley, a pioneer in sparkling-wine production in the U.S. Their Brut Rosé is sublime with a grilled veal chop but has enough backbone to stand up to a dish like the Black-Pepper-Roasted Duck Breasts with Grilled Plums."

Where to Drink Right Now

Where to Drink Right Now

Just because Schramsberg Vineyards’ sparkling wine has been poured at more than 70 White House state dinners since the Nixon administration doesn’t mean it can’t star at your next backyard barbecue or Netflix night. Need a pairing for your hot buttered popcorn? Tour-guide-cum-standup-comedian Todd Pippin might recommend the 2004 Brut Rosé, bright and dry with notes of peach, strawberry and vanilla. An appointment-only tasting includes a tour of the gothic, lichen-dappled caves and a demonstration of riddling (the classic method of collecting yeast sediment in the neck of each bottle—a crucial part of the méthode traditionelle), still done by hand...

Grant Burge Releases the Best Holy Trinity To-Date

2002 Grant Burge The Holy Trinity Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre There are only a few wine regions in the world which can grow Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvédre as well as Rhone in Southern France.
