"We start with the base wine, which is the same fruit used in their our high-end, methode champenoise programs. A natural yeast fermentation then adds bubbles and imparts a pleasant pastry-like character. Next they we introduce a small amount of blueberry flavor that leaves a lovely element of surprise and refreshment. The processing of these elements at their peak help craft Blanc de Bleu’s unique flavor and palate-pleasing complexity. This method is why people are pleasantly surprised to find the wine dry and crisp, instead of another overly sweet, flavored wine.” - Bronco Wine’s Champagne Master

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.
