Brilliant and bright pink in color, the wine shows aromas of freshly picked cranberry, red fruit, tangerine and guava. The palate is bursting with red fruit and citrus, with a zippy acidity and a long finish.

About Piper Sonoma Wines
For nearly 40 years, we’ve been handcrafting sparkling wines using Méthode Traditionnelle—the same technique used to craft the best Champagnes—but with a personality that is pure Sonoma. Sonoma is a place where tradition and modernity come together to create something truly unique. Here creativity and individuality can run rampant, tempered only by an ingrained respect for the land and community around us.
In that spirit, we invite you to bring a little Sonoma into your life. Seek beauty. Stay humble. And make time to celebrate occasions both large and small by raising a glass with the people who warm your heart.
Piper Sonoma was founded in 1980 by the Marquis d’Aulan, whose family has been linked for generations with Champagne and Premium wines.
Our founders and the others who came before us were pioneers and visionaries who saw the great promise in this place. They carved a way of life out of this land, stood up for what they believed, and gave shape to a thriving wine industry. We’re proud to carry forward their legacy of fierce independence and to steward this land for generations to come.
We create our sparkling wines using the classic technique called Methode Traditionnelle, the same technique used to make the best Champagnes. Each vineyard lot is hand-harvested, fermented and aged separately. Primary fermentation takes place in tanks and barrels, and then each cuvee is tirage bottled, where it undergoes a second fermentation and is allowed to age on its lees. The resulting wines are dry, smooth and complex, with a rich, creamy texture.
We take this approach because we believe the uniqueness of each wine and each bottle is something to celebrate. It takes patience and skilled hands, but it ensures that you taste the purest expression of both our craft and this place we call home.
Sourcing from vineyards across Sonoma County, the wines are produced in Healdsburg, California under the guidance of experienced Winemaker Keith Hock.
