We Made Bubbles!!
You've probably heard me talk about making sparkling wine. And I'm sure many of you heard me say it so many times that you started thinking it was just that - talk. But we have news for you... WE FINALLY DID IT!! Sound the trumpets, hoist the flags - it's time to celebrate with some LORING BUBBLY!!
It's been a long journey getting to this point. We tried in 2005,2006, and 2007, but failed miserably :( The silver lining is that we learned from those mistakes, and have now made something we're really proud of. In fact, two somethings - a 2009 Brut Blanc de Blancs and a 2009 Brut Rosé. While we made about 100 cases of each, we only disgorged half of them. The remainder will rest for a couple more years gaining complexity - think of them as our version of Dom's Oenothèque. We plan on doing that every year, which is why all our labels will have both the vintage date and disgorgement date. Something we wish ALL sparkling wines listed. As far as going forward, we have the 2010, 2012, and 2013 vintages waiting for their time to shine. And 2014 will be joining them shortly.
So, here they are... FINALLY. And just in time for the Holidays. And WITHOUT cork!! Hey, you'll actually get to use your corkscrews on a Loring wine.... to pop the bubbly crown caps :)
