“Carboniste” is a sparkling wine project by husband and wife duo, Jacqueline and Dan Person. Dan was the longtime assistant winemaker Schramsberg (Napa Valley’s oldest & premium Sparkling wine producer) and quite some years at Larkmead. His wife worked as an invested consultant for a large winery. Together they decided to start something on their own, and handcraft some “modern-day” Sparkling wines. The packaging alone is innovative and fun!
The 2020 Sparkling Rosé of Pinot noir is a fun and fresh sparkling wine with aromas of wild strawberry and guava. It pairs well with a wide range of fresh foods including uni (sea urchin).
Vineyards : This wine is assembled from a range of cool-climate vineyards from which we source our Pinot noir and Chardonnay including the Santa Cruz Mountains and Marin County. We consider these to be the best appellations in California for sparkling wine, and we carefully select barrels that help us create this unique sparkling rosé.
