This is fun and fizzy, a little funky and positively loaded with personality. This spritzy wine that will charm any fan of this hugely popular wine style.
About Petillant Naturel
Pet-Nat or Pétillant-Naturel (natural sparkling) is an ancient, natural form of fizzy wine which is bottled before the completion of primary fermentation.
As the yeasts eat the sugar inside the bottle, turning it into alcohol, the yeast bugs excrete carbon dioxide (CO2) which causes the juice to become fizzy. Pet-Nats are typically released young and fresh, often within months of being picked and can be made from any grape variety.
This method of winemaking is known as méthode ancestral.
