Schramsberg Vineyards Company:
Schramsberg was originally established by Jacob Schram in 1862. The hillside vineyards reminded him of those used to grow Riesling in his native Germany, and he bought the land and began his wine-making business (he had been a barber by trade).

Schramsberg was originally established by Jacob Schram in 1862. The hillside vineyards reminded him of those used to grow Riesling in his native Germany, and he bought the land and began his wine-making business (he had been a barber by trade). Eventually the family sold the property, and nothing much of note really happened to it until Jack and Jamie Davies bought the land in 1965. The Davies' were specifically interested in making sparkling wines, but only discovered after moving onto the land that the hot Calistoga hillsides (Calistoga is typically 5 to 15 degrees warmer than the rest of the Napa Valley) were not particularly hospitable to the two grapes essential to champagne, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. They set about finding suppliers in other parts of the valley, and produced their first sparkling vintage in 1965. Widespread fame came in 1972, when President Nixon used the 1969 in his toast to China. Schramsberg has been the official sparkling wine of U.S. presidents ever since. Read less

Nice biscuity value sparkler. Straw color. Faint aromas of toasted bread and lemon. Citrus, nutty, and toasty flavors. Fairly impressive complexity, given the price.

I found this to be very simple and enjoyable. Not biting but not overly sweet. Really enjoyed it - would buy again for $30 or less

A pale salmon color in the glass, producing very pink foam. Strawberry and toast surrounded by yeast, coconut and peach with a wild brine hint. Rich on the palate with aggressive mousse and nice bold acidity. Candied strawberries are backed by dark r... Mike Supple. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. N.V.

Filled out by tropical fruit notes, the aromas merrily greet you from the glass. The bright citrus entry on the palate gives way to subtle honey and caramel, with just a hint of fresh cream to balance the zesty acid.

This bubbly is both complex and fun to drink, with lemon curd and spicy caramel aromas that lead to crisp but luscious cherry, apple and toasty vanilla flavors. Drink now.

Made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this bubbly is a little rough in texture, but it?s nicely dry and clean, with pleasant strawberries and cream, yeasty lees and vanilla flavors.
