In the Vineyards

Nature does her part. In the Sonoma Carneros region abundant sunshine and cool bay breezes help Pinot Noir and Chardonnay ripen to delicate perfection. The seasoned crew at Gloria Ferrer hand farms every block, row, vine and cluster, carefully isolating and nurturing each distinctive flavor.

In the Flute

Take a moment to look in the glass. Notice how the bubbles are tiny and uniformed with a thin, frothy line of foam on top. That’s the mousse.

Breathe deep. The exuberant bouquet and fragrant essence of fresh berries is a hallmark of Gloria Ferrer’s generous, Pinot-rich blend.

In the Winery

There are no shortcuts in the méthode champenoise process. It’s the time-honored and time intensive approach to crafting sparkling wine. The vast palette of flavors from the vineyard comes together in blends that will spend from 3 to 10 years in underground caves.

On the Palate

There’s a veritable montage of flavors in every sip. Pinot Noir’s depth, lushness and silky mouth feel. Chardonnay’s crisp floral acidity. Every nuance coaxed so carefully from the estate vineyards comes together to reward those who take a little extra time to fully appreciate them.
