Winemaker Notes

Torrontés and Chardonnay are not common bedfellows, but when you want a crisp, refreshing sparkling wine that promises never to be boring, then this is the pair you want. Chardonnay gives this wine satisfying body and richness, and the Torrontés adds its signature tangerine and floral aromas and flavors. Crack this open with a dozen dancing friends, with your parents over a plate of cheese, or just sip it quietly on your porch. And you will remember that, yes, life is still pretty good.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The non-vintage Torrontes/Chardonnay is a blend of 20% and 80% respectively, made under the Champenoise and Charmat method. The Torrontes, which comes from La Rioja rather than Salta, lifts the aromatics with some lovely lime and lychee aromas. The palate is well-balanced, with attractive passion fruit and lime notes, crisp acidity and a nicely poised, peachy finish. This is a great sparkling Argentinean wine. Drink now.

Reginato, Mendoza, Argentina
Having learned from his father Jose who made wine for over 50 years, Pepe crafts some of Mendoza’s most sought after limited-production, boutique sparkling wines. The Reginatos have always had a ritual of toasting not only all of life’s important events, but also the small joys of everyday life. Unlike other “factory” sparkling wine producers in Mendoza, the Reginatos personally manage the whole process themselves, from grape to bottle. They manage the vineyards, select the grapes, harvest at the optimal time, make the base wine, and then do secondary fermentation at their own winery. They produce both Charmat and “Metodo Tradicional” (Champenoise) sparkling wines, and if you ever get a chance to meet Pepe, you’ll see what kind of hand muscles you can develop after years of hand-riddling bottles.

By far the largest and best-known winemaking province in Argentina, Mendoza is responsible for over 70% of the country’s enological output. Set in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the climate is dry and continental, presenting relatively few challenges for viticulturists during the growing season. Mendoza is divided into several distinctive sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley—two sources of some of the country’s finest wines.

For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec, originally a Bordelaise variety brought to Argentina by the French in the mid-1800s. Here it found success and renown it never could have achieved in its homeland due to its struggle to ripen fully in finicky climates. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, and Pinot Noir are all widely planted here as well (and often blended with one another. The best white wines are made from Chardonnay, and there are excellent examples to be found as well from Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc, and Sémillon.

Champagne & Sparkling

View all wine

Equal parts festive and food-friendly, sparkling wine is beloved for its lively bubbles and appealing aesthetics. Though it is often thought of as something to be reserved for celebrations, sparkling wine can be enjoyed on any occasion—and might just make the regular ones feel a bit more special. Sparkling wine is made throughout the world, but can only be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France. Other regions have their own specialties, like Prosecco in Italy and Cava in Spain. Sweet or dry, white or rosé (or even red!), lightly fizzy or fully sparkling, there is a style of bubbly wine to suit every palate.

The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, trapping carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. Champagne, Cava and many other sparkling wines (particularly in the New World) are made using the “traditional method,” in which the second fermentation takes place inside the bottle. With this method, dead yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful and toasty flavors. For Prosecco, the carbonation process occurs in a stainless steel tank to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas preferred for this style of wine.
