One of the joys about being a small family-owned operation is the ability to make small batches of interesting blends. For a long time, vigneron Dr Eve Tsironis wanted to make a sparkling rose'. In 2019, the opportunity presented itself, with an imaginative blend of merlot and fiano! To preserve the freshness and bubbles, this wine has been sealed with a crown cap rather than cork.
