The Verdict?

[eltd_unordered_list style=”circle” animate=”yes” font_weight=””]

  • It’s a POP! Overall this is a very good example of a warmer climate traditional method sparkling wine. It will pair exceptionally well with Californian style cuisine, or just good times and a second (or third) glass!
