2017 Foley Sonoma Winemaker Series Brut Sparkling, Russian River Valley
The Foley Sonoma Winemaker Series includes wines handcrafted and selected by our winemaker. Each wine in the series embodies a distinct representation of terroir which is illustrated by the hand painted watercolors depicted on our labels. The fruit for this sparkling comes from picturesque Foley family vineyards in the Russian River Valley.
85% Pinot Noir, 15% Chardonnay
Sourced from our family’s vineyard in Russian River Valley, the pinot noir for this wine comes from a hillside block known as “Redwood Block.” This beautiful block is shielded from the sun by massive Redwood trees, ensuring that the fruit never gets sunburned, and preserving the grape’s natural acidity. The chardonnay for this wine sits across the street from the winery, just a few hundred feet from the Russian River. It is a mix of Dijon and Robert Young clones.
