Welcome to Bar Back!
In 1965, Jack and Jamie Davies established Schramsberg on property originally owned by Jacob Schram, setting out to make world class sparkling wine to rival the prestige and quality of French Champagne. Their son Hugh now manages the estate, which is located in Napa Valley’s Diamond Mountain District, totaling 220 acres with 50 acres under vine. Its historic caves, which cover 30,000 square feet, were dug in the 1880s.
Schramsberg produces limited quantities of traditionally hand crafted sparkling wines from grapes grown in many cool climate vineyards throughout the North Coast. They are unique among California sparkling wine houses in that they barrel ferment 25% of their juice to produce rich, flavorful, complex wines. A world class winery and recognized leader in the California wine industry, Schramsberg produces America’s finest sparkling wines which have been served proudly at state functions at the White House and abroad for decades.
Tasting notes: Aromas of key lime, green apple and honeydew melon. Flavors of citrus, ripe Anjou pear, dried pineapple and it finishes with lingering and balanced acidity. Technical notes: (100% Chardonnay). Small lots of malolactic and barrel fermented wines are blended and aged on the lees in bottle for two years prior to disgorgement.
