Winemaker's Notes:

The Royal Cuvée is made from 100% hand-picked Carneros grapes. Only the tete de cuvée, the first gentle pressing of the grapes, is used for this méthode champenoise sparkling wine and it has been aged on the yeast for over six years. This cuvée displays a trail of tiny persistent, effervescent bubbles that transcend to form a rich crown of mouse and a creamy, velvety texture.

About Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards:

Gloria Ferrer is the offspring of a powerful parent: Freixenet of Spain, the world's largest producer of sparkling wine. Drawn to the promise of California, Freixenet established a California winery, naming it after the wife of Freixenet's president. The winery in Carneros is one of the best stops in all of Wine Country. Visit the aging caves carved in the hillside and enjoy the sun-splashed deck while noshing on roasted almonds and sipping bubbly. Wines produced are Blanc de Noir, Brut, Brut Rose, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Rose.
