Winemaker's Notes:

Made exclusively from the first press of hand-picked Carneros grapes, the wine was created originally to honor and welcome King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sophia of Spain on their first visit to Northern California. This vintage, another gold medal winning release, has become the favorite of wine critics and sparkling wine lovers alike with its enticing aromas of fresh fruit that persist throughout a long, elegant finish.

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.
