La Vie en Bulles
La Vie en Bulles (Life in Bubbles) is a sparkling rosé from California made in the style of France's Bugey-Cerdon. The wine is made from organically grown Pinot Noir from the Sierra Foothills and St. Laurent grapes from Carneros by a process known as Méthode Ancestrale. It is the first Bugey-Cerdon style wine made in the United States.
La Vie en Rose
La Vie en Rose (Life in Pink) is a dry still rosé from California. The wine is a blend of 44% Counties and 56% old-vine Heritage Grape Varieties (Zinfandel, Petit Sirah, Syrah & others) grown in Mendocino AVA. Soils are a mix of decomposing sandstone and red sandy loam.
Girasole is made from organic Sangiovese grapes grown in Chianti Classico. The name, Girasole, references the sunflowers grown throughout Tuscany, Jordan's mom's favorite flower and the Tory Burch Foundation logo. A percentage of proceeds to the Tory Burch Foundation, which empowers women entrepreneurs and their families through microfinance and mentorship.
Scopello is made from 100% Frappato grapes grown organically in Vittoria, in southern Sicily. The name, Scopello, references rock formations off the coast. A percentage of Scopello proceeds to Nomogaia, an NGO that pushes multi-national corporations to respect human rights.
Caldera is made from Falanghina grapes grown without chemicals or pesticides in the hills of Campania. Nearby Mount Vesuvius' violent explosions have released more than 100,000 times the thermal energy of an atomic bomb. The explosions have created Campania's geological identity. Claudia Wu has reimagined that smoke and ash on out label. A percentage of Caldera proceeds are donated to Earth Justice.
