2021 La Vie en Rose
Charmat method is a famous Italian sparkling style of second fermentation occurring in specialized pressure tanks to produce natural bubbles the same way that Prosecco is made. This complements our diverse Traditional Method sparkling portfolio and offers a new sparkling that is fresh, vibrant, fruity, and dry.
