Pop Punk

Pop Punk is our series of house-made sparkling wines that use offbeat execution and atypical grapes to make the kind of bubbles that are as easy to enjoy as they are atypical.

    2021 "Pop Punk" Rosé of Pinot Noir Pét-Nat
    #05:  "Relentlessly Knuckleheaded and Sorta Wonderful"
    Russian River Valley—Sonoma County
    12.1% Alcohol by Volume

    This is our second release of a Rose sparkling wine made naturally (French term: méthode ancestrale), meaning how sparkling wine was made before disgorging became a thing. It is called "Pet Nat", which is short for Pétillant Natural, and it certainly is not your typical sparkling wine. We hand-bottled the wine before it completed fermentation, which allows for its natural effervescence. But here's the rub, it also traps the lees from the yeast, making the wine cloudy or hazy; think Hazy IPA beers or ciders for example. The lees, which enhance flavor and aroma in the wine, tend to settle out and find their way to the bottom of the bottle. So, when you first open the cap, you will need to allow those bubbles a chance to break up the lees and the wine to return to its cloudy (preferred) state for drinking.

    Larry Venturi’s family has tended vines on the benchland above Calpella for over 100 years. He is the archetypical old-timer in all the best ways; the kind of grower who plants head-trained and dry-farmed Grenache in 2017 and then farms it organically because that’s how he farms everything. This block is on the uppermost bench of his ranch, and the slightly higher elevation and farming techniques help limit these young vines of a vigorous variety to a moderate crop of intense concentration.
