Part of an ancient tradition and made in a process known as "Methode Ancestrale," these wines are often referred to as Pétillant Naturel or Pét-Nat's. At Channing Daughters, we hand-harvest the grapes, whole cluster-press them and settle the juice. We start wild fermentations in small stainless-steel tanks then coarsely filter and bottle the wine with no sulfur dioxide or stabilization. Embrace the slightly cloudy nature when pouring out the end of the bottle.
Our Rosato is a gorgeous, deep, electric ruby pink color with intoxicating aromas of ripe black cherry, plum, and watermelon accompanied by our telltale minerality. Just a touch of sweetness, irresistibly delicious, great texture and balance as well as a lovingly luxurious feeling of bubbles. (from the vintner)
