Our sparkling wines are sourced from vineyards in Carneros, undergoing a special process that takes about five years from vineyard to consumer. With four styles, Sparkling is the smallest of our collections and can be found in our tasting room, through our web store, as part of our wine club, and by very few select retailers.
Blanc de Blancs
Our signature sparkling, the 2016 Blanc de Blancs displays wonderful finesse, lightness, and elegance. A classic bouquet of lemon peel, sliced green apple, and fresh ginger persist to a pristinely fresh palate. Delicate beads of bubbles intermingle with hints of honeyed nuts cut by crystalline acidity that converge with a long, tangy finish.

“Aged five years on the lees, this is a beautiful vintage bubbly with a nose of creamy almond, lemon, and minerals. Soft, elegant mousse with persistent bubbles; fresh green apple appears on the palate before the long finish.”
"This wine leaps from the glass with notes of brioche, honeyed peaches, and beeswax, followed by touches of cashews and apple butter. The palate is sophisticated, crisp, and finely-knit with tiny, persistent bubbles and a persistent, zesty finish."
There is nothing that epitomizes summer better than lobster! It instantly enhances any dish, especially a bright citrus salad paired beautifully with Frank Family’s Blanc de Blancs. The wine itself is delicately structured which allows the rich sweetness of the lobster to carry through to the palate.

A light coral pink in the glass, this elegant bottling shows rose petals, fresh raspberries, and a hint of lime zest on the soft and welcoming nose. The lush palate offers strawberries laced with citrus fruit and a touch of almonds that convenes in a refreshing minerality that lingers.
Lady Edythe Reserve Brut
Named in honor of Rich Frank’s mother, Edythe, the Lady Edythe is a late disgorged sparkling wine with 8 years on its lees. Its intensity and concentration derives from its predominately Chardonnay base that provides classic Champenoise minerality as well as elegant citrus fruit flavors. Its acidity has been softened and beautifully integrated by the wine’s maturity, yet it still is remarkably full of life.
