Maysara's New Sparkling Wine Debuts at Wine Club Party

On my recent trip to Oregon, I happened to stop in at one of the state's largest Biodynamic vineyards - Maysara Winery and Momtazi Family vineyard. It was raining heavily, but the wine club pickup party (scheduled for what would usually have been a good weather day) was in full swing.

On hand was a new sparkling wine ($35) - made from 100% Pinot Noir.

It was only available for wine club members this past weekend, but the Momtazis said it will also be for sale to the public at the winery.

Just a note: more Pinot Noir in France is grown for sparkling wine than is bottled as Pinot Noir. Just so you know.

It's nice to see more vintners here making sparkling wine - one of my favorites.
