Food Pairing Suggestions
Bubbles are one of the more versatile wines to pair with food. Kick off your happy hour with a sparkling wine aperitif - it works well with a range of appetizers from brie and Prosciutto to savory egg rolls. This fantastic sparkler will also pair beautifully with oysters, fried shrimp and Jamaican cuisine. We also love it with seared tuna and fried chicken! Try it with a dessert of fresh fruit for a lively finish to your meal.
This wine is made in the traditional “Methode Champenoise” with a base wine of 87% Pinot Noir and 13% Chardonnay.

Estate La Cruz Vineyard
About The Vineyard
The grapes for this offering come exclusively from the mineral rich, clay soils of the La Cruz Vineyard, on the west-facing slopes of the estate.
The ancient seabed of the San Pablo Bay is mineral rich, with clay soils that define this vineyard. Planted to chardonnay, pinot noir, syrah, viognier, and pinot gris, this is the heart of Keller Estate. Typical to this vineyard is a bright acidity and signature spice notes.
The Petaluma Gap AVA offers ideal terroir for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which both thrive in cooler climates. Because of this and the team’s dedication to excellent winemaking, the resulting wines from Keller Estate vineyards are consistently well-balanced, complex and elegant.
The base wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks with no malolactic fermentation to achieve the bright yet delicate aromas of rose and raspberry. After the secondary fermentation, wine was aged on its lees for 24 months, followed by a dosage of 9g/L residual sugar, classifying this as a Brut.
