Winestyr Review

This pet-nat is sourced from the little-known Redwood Valley AVA in Mendocino County from an organic, dry farmed vineyard of beautiful old vines. Carignan may not be a classic sparkling wine grape but from this site, the resulting wine has so much personality it's hard to believe it's this rare. Only five barrels were produced and our allocation is extremely small.

What We Love

  • Unique grape for pet-nat
  • Emerging producer in CA
  • Micro-production

Pop this poolside or enjoy during a movie night at home, either way make sure it's an occasion without pretention.

Experience

Both formerly of Broc Cellars, Josh Hammerling and Noah Kenoyer made the bold choice to make California bubbly the calling card of their urban winery. It didn't take long before the duo caught the attention of wine critics from San Francisco to New York. Bold choices yield bold rewards!

Made in a range of styles and using both pet-nat and Methode Champenoise to communicate those styles, Blue Ox's wines are single vineyard expressions and push the boundaries of what we think is possible with sparkling wine. We're thrilled to offer you a chance to enjoy this highly acclaimed, boutique producer.

    This is hands down one of the best sparkling roses I have had. It will satisfy prosecco & rose drinkers alike. Light, refreshing and perfect for summer.
