Best Opened: Best to open at 5-8 degrees celsius as one would a Champagne due to wine’s persistent bubble.

Winemaking Method: Grapes were pressed lightly, leftover wet grapes went back to concrete tank where water was added to dilute and ferment remaining sugars.This went on for 5-10 days. Juice was then racked off, and was allowed to settle over winter. Organic honey from our own bees was added to restart fermentation in spring - No SO2 added.
