This exquisite domestic sparkling wine grabs your attention with aromas of apple, fresh apricot and pear. Intense flavors of baked apple pie and ground nutmeg are perfectly balanced by the bright characteristics in this wine such as lemon and key lime. A generous linger of toasty brioche and lively mineral acidity rounds out an exciting bubbly for a wide variety of occasions. Made in the Methode Champenoise. 500 cases produced.
After a successful career in residential construction, Michael Bello set his sights on the wine industry. In 2000, determined to produce a premium Cabernet Sauvignon, Michael purchased a piece of prime real estate located in the Napa Valley’s Rutherford Bench district. He set about constructing a French farmhouse with materials imported from France, incorporating details that had never been seen before in Napa Valley. His dream to produce a quality boutique Cabernet Sauvignon was set in motion. Bello Family Vineyards now produces an impressive lineup of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and the Alexandrie Cellars Sparkling wine each year.
Alexandrie reflects the culmination of a vision between Christopher and Chloe Bello, a synergy of their complementary skills, experiences and talents. Named in honor of their daughter, the wine is lovingly produced in small batches at Christopher and Chloe’s boutique, family-operated winery in Napa Valley. As a second generation winery owner, Christopher leverages his unique upbringing and inherent knowledge of the industry to develop the winery’s distinctive creations and manage the day-to-day operations. With a passion for sparkling wine and champagne, along with an impeccable eye for design, Chloe was the initial spark behind the formation of Alexandrie. The creator of the collector-quality bottle design, Chloe draws from her talent for connecting with people and project management skills to supervise winery events and tastings. Christopher and Chloe have a background in the wine industry that began in 2007. As local residents of the Napa Valley area with deep community ties, their love for the character, atmosphere and charm of the region flavors everything they do.More from this winery

I tried this at the Chicago lounge and it was a great. I would not consider this sweet so I think it would be okay drinking with a light meal. It was crisp and perfect. The bottle was beautiful as well.
