Winemaker Notes

Mountain Dome's multi-vintage Brut Rosè is a blend of two separate vintages that were fermented in small French oak barrels and aged in the bottle for four years before disgorging. This is Washington State's first true sparkling Brut Rose that was made in the traditional French saignee method. The Pinot Noir grapes were crushed and allowed to sit on their skins for 13 hours. This gives the wine its unique vibrant color and complex taste. The rich overtones are due to the barrel fermentation and long bottle aging.

Mountain Dome, Columbia Valley, Washington
Mountain Dome is truly a family owned and operated winery. We opened our winery in September of 1984, having built the geodesic dome and 8,500 square foot winery ourselves. It is located on an 85 acre forest in the foothills of Mount Spokane.

The Manz Family, with occasional help from friends, are the labor force behind Mountain Dome Winery. Our success relies in our ability to remain a small, family-run winery, producing only the finest sparkling wine possible.

Mountain Dome Winery produces exclusively sparkling wines made in the traditional French methode champenoise. The technique of the second fermentation occuring in the bottle is what creates the tiny bubbles at Mountain Dome. All our grapes are grown in the cooler regions of Washington State. A number of different sites were choosen to bring complexity to our blends while insuring a balance between varietal tastes, sugar and acid levels.

We use three kinds of grapes. The Chardonnay adds softness and complexity to the cuvèe or blend while Pinot Noir contributes the backbone and power to our wines. A small amount of Pinot Meunier adds strength and character. Pinot Meunier is an offshoot of Pinot Noir and commonly used in wines of Champagne. The juice is fermented in small French oak barrels. This allows our wines to gain in depth and complexity while causing them to age well. Small French oak barrels also aid in controlling the temperature of fermentation as well as adding complexity in the taste. We use yeast that is available only from Champagne France to add to the bouquet as well as producing tiny bubbles.

Once the wine is bottled, it is aged between three to five years in our temperature controlled winery. This extended aging sur lattes contributes to the complexity of the finish in our wines and adds to the nutty-toasty character. Riddling is the process of carefully turning each bottle multiple time while the bottle is sitting in a shaped rack or pupitre. This motion allows the yeast to move down into the neck of the bottle and lodge behind the crown cap. This riddling is done both by hand and by Gyro-Matic machines that simulate the hand movements.

Then the bottles are carefully transfered to a neck freezer which traps the yeast in a plug of frozen wine. This allows the yeast to be removed and a small amount of dosage or sugared reserve wine is added to each bottle to balance the acid level in the sparkling wine. The juxtaposition of the sugared dosage in the acid wine while in the presence of the bubbles produces a balanced sparkling wine of great complexity and depth. Finally the wine is aged four to six months before it is brought to the market.
