At Calais we make sparklings in the French traditional style, a project we started back in September 2010. Created onsite by hand, small, select parcels of fruit fermented and then matured on lees for a minimum of 9 months, hand riddled then disgorged, dosaged, dressed and labelled. The finished result of all this hard work is stunning hand crafted sparkling wines which show a refined elegance.
Because we have such a small, boutique process we are able to offer the unique experience of getting hands-on with our Winemakers and designing your own sparkling. Choose your base wines, disgorge and dosage to your own style to create your very own unique sparkling wine...you can even customise the label!
This is a project we are very proud of here at Calais and one that we showcase regularly in our monthly Winery Long Lunches and Bubbles Bonanza sessions. It also enables us to be able to individually style bubbles for larger special events or orders, a favourite with our Brides!
This is a very unique offering and does require long timeframes for large orders. To speak to someone about designing your own sparkling wine call Katrina on 0400 747072.
