About This Wine

Until Chardonnay exploded in popularity, French Colombard was California’s most widely planted white grape.

Hailing from the Charente region of southwest France, it became popular in California as a base wine in the distillation process for brandy. It’s still used for that, and also continues to be used as a blending grape for dry table wines. You’d be surprised how many bottlings of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and even Syrah have a small amount of French Colombard in the blend.

As the non-vintage “Grand Cuvee” from Califortune demonstrates, it also can be used to make an outstanding sparkling wine. The French Colombard grapes used in this wine were grown in California’s San Joaquin Valley.

Using the Charmat method — which calls for the wine to undergo a cold secondary fermentation in stainless steel tanks and then be bottled under pressure — this sparkling beauty is fruitful, refreshing and delicious.
