Winemaker Notes

An abundant mousse and enticing aromas of delicate orange blossoms, ripe Gravenstein apple, vanilla and brioche announce this elegant Blanc de Blancs. Its full, creamy entry on the palate reveals complex flavors of ripe pear, lemon meringue and hints of white chocolate along with mineral notes that persist on a fresh, lasting, precisely balanced finish.

A versatile accompaniment to a wide variety of appetizers from fresh oysters to toasted almonds, mussels to grilled prawns and, yes, caviar, this wine also matches superbly with a variety of cheeses like triple creams, Brie and Fontina.

Connoisseurs' Guide
Showing the lightness and bracing minerality that one expects of a Blanc de Blancs, this somewhat delicate, lightly toasty effort is on the green appley side in keeping with its 100% Chardonnay styling. Its bubbles are frothy and insistent, and its acidity keeps the wine austere even while its fruit makes it approachable. This balanced, wholly convincing effort would be right at home with tangy bites like fresh-shucked oysters.

Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards, Sonoma County, California
2006 Blanc de Blancs
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.

Sonoma County

View all wine

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for nearly every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa, the region only produces about half the amount of wine, but what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in both quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River and Sonoma Valleys, Carneros, and Fort Ross-Seaview. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.
