Any Season is the Season for Northwest Sparkling Wine!
The Pacific Northwest sparkles with great wine... and great wines that sparkle! So why do we save it all for the holidays? Indeed! Sparkling wines from Oregon are amazingly food friendly, and fun to drink.
Here in the Pacific Northwest we have fantastic climates for sparkling wines, and plenty of good producers in Oregon who make tasty sparklers. The relatively high acidities and fresh feel of these wines give them many applications, from simple sipping with cheese and nuts to more considered pairing with seafood or poultry. After all, it is good to remember that most sparkling wines are made from two of the Northwest's most popular varietals: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
You can call it "bubbly," or you can call it "sparkly," but don't ever call it "Champagne" - unless it is a méthod champenoise wine from the French Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée, la Champagne. Through the agency of a World Trade Organization agreement (to which the United States is a signatory) the name "Champagne" cannot be used in relation to a wine that does not originate in la Champagne region of France.
Visit the renowned Willamette Valley in Oregon’s premium wine country for an afternoon of wine tasting. Oregon’s sparkling wine producers make small amounts of hand crafted, often hand riddled sparkling wine. Oregon has come along way and is now known around the world for exquisite sparkling and still wines.
