    Winemaker Notes

    The palate offers bubbling mousse flourishing with sweet citrus and tangerine, honey, peaches, white flowers and orange zest on the finish. The wine has an intriguing balance of sweetness and acidity providing structure and making it the perfect aperitif for light appetizer courses such as salads and soft cheeses; structured enough to pair with spicy cuisine, and also a great companion to light and fruit driven desserts.

    Honey Bubbles, Italy
    Over the last 50 years, bees, and therefore honey and other crops pollinated by bees have been threatened by Colony Collapse Disorder.

    “23% of American Honeybee Colonies died this Winter” - Huffington Post 2014 The decline in the Honey Bee population poses a serious threat to numerous parts of our ecosystem. Combating this requires funds for research, education and support for new bee colonies.

    Honey Bubbles will donate a portion of the proceeds to combating Colony Collapse Disorder of Honey Bees.

    Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture that is virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes are grown just about everywhere throughout the country—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas. The defining geographical feature of the country is the Apennine Mountain range, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south. The island of Sicily nearly grazes the toe of Italy’s boot, while Sardinia lies to the country’s west. Climate varies significantly throughout the country, with temperature being somewhat more dependent on elevation than latitude, though it is safe to generalize that the south is warmer. Much of the highest quality viticulture takes place on gently rolling, picturesque hillsides.

    Italy boasts more indigenous varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but their use is declining in popularity, especially as younger growers begun to take interest in rediscovering forgotten local specialties. Sangiovese is the most widely planted variety in the country, reaching its greatest potential in parts of Tuscany. Nebbiolo is the prized grape of Piedmont in the northwest, producing singular, complex and age-worthy wines. Other important varieties include Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola and of course, Pinot Grigio.

    Non-Vintage

    A term typically reserved for Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply “NV” on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage Champagne, typically the current year’s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called “vins de reserve” are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single vintage.

    There are also some very large production still wines that may not claim one particular vintage. This would be at the discretion of the winemaker’s goals for character of the final wine.
