Domaine Carneros commemorates the 40th Anniversary of the Carneros AVA

With a celebratory new tasting experience only available during the month of March

March 2, 2023 Napa, CA - Domaine Carneros, the award-winning California grower-producer of méthode traditionelle sparkling wines, introduces Colors of Carneros, a new tasting experience to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Carneros American Viticultural Area (AVA). Domaine Carneros was founded in 1987, when the Taittinger Family, with the dream of making the finest sparkling wine in the United States, purchased a 138-acre parcel in the heart of the Carneros AVA.

Colors of Carneros, a curated selection of the most-loved sparkling wines and classic pinot noirs all produced with estate fruit from Carneros, features the 2018 Estate Brut Cuvée, 2019 Brut Rosé, 2020 Avant-Garde Pinot Noir, and 2020 Estate Pinot Noir. Enjoy this flight at the château overlooking the vineyards amidst the scenic rolling hills of Carneros or purchase the flight of wines for a special occasion to be enjoyed in the privacy of your own home. The cost at the Domaine Carneros tasting room is $40 person ($32 for Château Society Members) not including gratuity or sales tax or purchase the set of wines for $165. Reservations are required and can be made online or by calling the winery at 1-800-716-2788 x 150.

With a history that dates to the 1800s, Carneros received its AVA status in 1983 and the Carneros Wine Alliance was formed shortly thereafter in 1985. Carneros was the first wine region in California to be defined by its climate characteristics rather than political boundaries, in large part due to the influence of the San Pablo Bay that straddles both Sonoma and Napa. The cool to moderate climate variations of the Carneros AVA offers some of the most versatile wines in the valley and produces grapes with the acidity levels needed to make sparkling wine and lively still wines.

About Domaine Carneros    
Founded in 1987, Domaine Carneros reflects the hallmark of its founder, Champagne Taittinger, in creating terroir-driven sparkling wine and preserving the quality tenets of the traditional method production.  Located entirely within the Carneros AVA between Napa and Sonoma counties, the six estate vineyards total approximately 400 acres with 150 acres planted to Chardonnay, 250 acres planted to Pinot Noir. The winery focuses on making ultra-premium Carneros sparkling wines and limited production pinot noirs grown on their estate vineyards.
