Sparkling wine has found a home in Anderson Valley. Our coastal climate is perfect to ensure the right acidity levels are achieved to provide sparklers that possess backbone, yet are able to showcase the gorgeous fruit of our wine region. Pinot Noir is often the primary source for making exceptional Blanc de Noirs, but other grapes like Pinot Gris and Chardonnay are also key grapes. It is estimated that as much as 70% of the Chardonnay grown in the Valley goes into sparkling programs. With sixteen known producers in our community making sparkling wine, we are recognizing ourselves as the premier New World sparkling wine region.
