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

Not bad for the money yummy fruit flavors just not amazing balance and bubbles don't hold up as long with a bit too much acidity but all in all a decent value.

From the first press of Pinot Noir grapes (the second is labeled Blanc de Noirs) in an elegant, refreshing style. Very opulent.

A beautiful blush wine, both to look at and to drink. The color is "the partridge's eye," and in the mouth, the wine is fully dry, crisp and subtle in raspberries, tangerines, vanilla, brioche and spices. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. - S.H. Wine Enthusiast. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2006 Schramsberg Brut Rose 750ml
