    Winemaker Notes

    As usual, we have used methods so traditional as to be antique. The base wine is barrel fermented and aged. The primary and subsequent bottle fermentations are done very slowly. The wine is bottle-aged for five years before disgorging and receives a small dosage of sweetened wine to flesh out the texture.

    The sparkling wine we produce is in strong opposition to this trend for a lighter champagne. Our style is full and toasty, meant to be drunk with food. Pleasant enough by itself, but it's much more at home with appetizers and first courses. It is very dry and not a good dessert champagne. -Michael Terrien, winemaker

    Acacia takes its name from the lone Acacia tree that once stood on this Los Carneros vineyard. The tree stands tall against the cool winds from San Francisco Bay signaling the chilly conditions that give this region one of the longest growing seasons around. Cool temperatures, dense clay soils and extended hangtime on the vine all combine to yield Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes of rare power and complexity. Gentle handcrafting brings out the full expression of this special terroir, for wines with layered varietal character over silky texture.

    California enjoys a long history and proven reputation as an admirable source of sparkling wines. Agoston Haraszthy, who established Buena Vista Winery in the mid 1850s, first attempted to make traditional method sparkling wine in California in the 1870s. Shortly thereafter Korbel followed, and with great success. Today domestic producers such as Schramsberg, Iron Horse and J. Wine Co remain at the forefront of the market.

    Since the 1970s the state has consistently attracted the attention and investment of large and respected European and French-based firms who are responsible for Domaine Chandon, Mumm-Napa Valley, Roederer Estate and Domaine Carneros (Taittinger), to name a few. Anderson Valley and Carneros remain standout regions for top quality Pinot noir and Chardonnay for these.
