This weekend i enjoyed a beautiful sunday up in wine country, and checking a winery off of my bucket list that has been on my list for quite some time now. i was so excited to taste at domaine carneros because i am a sparkling wine lover 🥂✨! domaine carneros is a sparkling wine house in the carneros region of wine country. their stunning, perfectly manicured property is styled after the chateau de la marquetterie in epernay, france. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
walking up the stairs of the property, there is a feeling of elegance that sets the mood for a sparkling wine tasting. sitting down on their front patio, there are stunning views of the rolling hills and vineyards. while they do offer still wines, they are know for their sparkling wines so i went with the all sparkling flight. if you are less about the bubbles they also offer a mixed tasting flight, and a completely still flight. they also offer cheese platters that pair with either their sparkling flight or still flight, which i recommend! they cheese was so delicious, and a perfect accompaniment to the wine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
their current sparkling flight ✨ consists a 2013 ultra brut, 2013 estate brut cuvée, a 2015 brut rosé, and a 2013 vermeil-demi-sec. i also was able to sample some of their blanc de noir made from 100% pinot noir grapes and made in the classic style which they have just released this years wine. of all of the sparkling wines i tasted, while they were all delicious, their blanc de noir was hands down my favorite! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
if you are visiting make sure that you schedule a reservation in advance as they are reservation only. it’s easy to do either online or calling ahead of time!
cheers 🥂 did you visit any places you were excited to check out?
