Blanc de Noirs (white from black) is the counterpart to Blanc de Blancs (white from white). Made from the red wine grape Pinot
Noir, this is a complex, fruity, medium-bodied sparkling wine. Schramsberg pioneered the Blanc de Noirs style in the United
States, releasing the first such American sparkler in 1967.
Making a white wine from a red grape requires great care – handpicked fruit, early morning harvest, optimal fruit maturity and
delicate pressing. A balance of bright flavors, crisp acidity and minimal tannins is achieved. Over two years of yeast contact in the
bottle knits all the elements together in a mature, toasty style.
