Bubbles Up

About the Wine:

Bubbles Up is our latest Pet Nat. 100% Cabernet Franc rosé.  This wine is a tribute to the singer Jimmy Buffet. The grapes for this wine were grown about 10 miles northwest of Jimmy Buffet's home where he passed away on 1 September 2023. The label pays tribute to the song "Bubbles Up" which in itself is a scuba diving term use to teach new divers about how to reorient themselves.

We picked up juice for this wine on 16 October 2023, brought the juice back, and started the ferment as soon as the juice warmed a bit. We then bottled the wine on 28 October 2023 before the ferment finished.  We added no sulfites to the wine. We did not filter this wine. We bottled this wine and let it continue to ferment in bottle - making a wonderful small-bubble sparkling wine. We put this wine into the cold wine cellar so it would cold stabilize and fall clear.

On 10 February 2024, we disgorged the wine (removed the sediment) . This lead to fewer bottles but a much happier experience. You can see videos of that process below.

This wine was released to the public on 2 March 2024.
